Is it true if you upgrade to 8GB RAM the video memory jumps from 256 to 512MB dedicated?
I do not want to hijack this thread, but does that mean you get way better performance out of it? I mean, for example, my 9400m will have 512MB instead of 265MB, which is twice as much. Will the overall gaming/video editing improve?
Wow if this is true it would be great honestly!
i'm fairly sure this only works on the intel 3000
K, I have the Intel 3000, if i upgrade and the memory jumps up to 512mb what will it help with? Render faster, more fps?Will it improve gaming?
As above then.
Once it jumps from 256 to 512 will i notice any benefits?
If i use lightroom or imovie for example?
Would it just increase my FPS in games? If so its useless as i dont play games lol
It would have more memory for textures. But is still has the same clock speed. I doubt you'd notice much of anything.
Will this work for nVidia 9400m?
Nope according to this Macrumors Member from another thread
The 2011 13" Macbook Pro has 384 MB of Vram to begin with. So by upgrading your ram to 8GB, your Vram will increase from 384MB to 512MB.
I hope this helps, IAN...
