Default Intel(R) GMA 950 video ram - 10-20-2008, 01:34 AM

Yes my first post.......got the lil' guy in the mail the other day off ebay for a hefty discount. Very nice!!

it is the 8gb 512mb web cam model. system requirements lab states that my video card has 64mb video ram being shared from the 512mb ram chip.

I have a dell e1505 with the same intel gma 950 chip, 1gig ram and system requirements lab states that it has 224mb video ram. It runs WOW like a champ.

I know the max shared ram for this gma950 chip is 224mb of v-ram but I was wondering when I upgrade to a 2gig ram chip on the mini if it will max out the mini's Video ram to 224mb of shared video ram? Or if it will remain at weak 64mb shared v-ram?

Could someone with 2gigs of ram on the mini go to system requirements lab and check for me???

This is something that should be brought up to Dell on their ideastorm website, it would be a great idea to do, esp since the video chip is capable of so much more.
