    Specs:
    13'' Macbook w/ 2Ghz Core Duo, 2GB DDR2, 250GB HD, 10.5.4. iPod Touch.
    More VRAM for the Macbook?
    Hello everyone,

    Here is an interesting question. I have noted that on the WidowsXP side of my macbook the integrated video card apparently uses 128MB of RAM whereas our OSX side uses only 64MB?

    With that in mind, would it be safe to say that the software is simply limiting the amout of memory to use for graphics?

    What if I had 2GB of RAM and therefore had a little extra and wanted it devoted to video, does anyone know if this is possible?

    Someone smarter than me must have some kind of idea.

    Yes, you are correct. In fact, quite a few people have posted about this before. Here are just a few threads for you to take a look at and get some more info:

    Thanks Devil, although a disappointing result indeed.
