    I currently have 4GB RAM of memory in my early 2011 MBP 13inch model and I want to upgrade this to a 8GB or 16GB 1866MHz
    Problem is I'm not sure what the differences between the two will be, graphics performance wise.
    I know that upgrading to 8GB increases VRAM to 512MB. What would happen when you upgrade to 16GB?
    Also is upgrading to 1866MHz a good idea?

    vRam doesn't go past 512mb. So when you go all the way to 16gb, you're making your computer a lot faster, but you're not doing a whole lot towards directly improving gpu capabilities

    The highest I've seen in the forum was a screenshot of an 8GB 1600MHz.

    I also found some information about 8GB 1866MHz from amazon review
    So 1866MHz for mbp 13 2011 is out of the question?
