Reducing VRAM For APU

HP Recommended
Pavillion Gaming 15ec0100ax
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hey,
The specs and details are mentioned at the end. The issue that I have currently is that I am not able to change the system reserve memory given for the radeon integrated graphics. Out of 8GB memory 2.1 is system reserved, the laptop is inbuilt with dedicated GTX 1650. So I am just wasting the memory there.
I could not find any setting in the bios to do so, if anyone knows please tell me how to reduce this.

AMD ryzen 5 3550H
8gb ram
gtx 1650
bios f 0.5 rev A(no further update available)

I reviewed your post and I understand that you want to reduce the video memory on the computer.

 

Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.

 

This is by design. AMD reserves some memory capacity in order to support the Microsoft PlayReady feature.

 

Refer to the below article for more information.

I hope that answers your question and you have a great day!

Hey,
The document just says that it cannont be changed. Whereas in the other brands we are getting the option to reduce it through BIOS, but in HP BIOS we are not getting the option. So shouldnt HP be giving us the authority of it?

Unfortunately on HP Consumer Notebooks you do not have that option in BIOS. Certain HP Commercial Notebooks do have that option but the HP Pavillion Gaming 15ec0100ax is not a Commercial Notebook.
