    If you are asking about dedicated video memory -
    The Iris video chip on that model does not have dedicated (hardware) memory, but shares with the main memory, and uses more as needed, up to 1GB.

    The cap actually went up beyond 1GB in Mavericks, if anyone could find the WWDC video on it I'd appreciate it.

    Iris Pro takes 1.5 GB on OS X 10.9.3.

    GTA5 is not yet released for PC. And I highly doubt that the 13" MBP will be able to play it even remotely well.

    In case I was not clear before, I will repeat it. GTA 5 has not been released on the PC platform (this includes Mac) . There are no versions, legal or otherwise. What you saw was either a trojan or maybe some earlier GTA game.

    VRAM doesn't matter all that much for games, that's usually not the limiting factor. The thing that does limit a graphics card is it's actual computing power.

    Iris is a step in a good direction as far as integrated graphics go. But it's no match for an actual, dedicated graphics card for gaming.

    You are either a scammer trying to get people to install known malware, or, well, I can't really write this here or they will ban me :D

    At any rate, good luck with your fake game installers.

    It depends on how much memory do you have installed in mac. More memory = more video ram
