    My understanding is that the Iris GPU that is internal to the main CPU uses a portion of the main memory. When using 2 external monitors connected to my late 2013 13" MBP with 8GB memory, does this configuration consume more of main memory by Iris than when I'm using no connected external monitors?

    Yes. It will use up to 1GB of memory, and certainly more than if you are using only the laptop screen.
