How Much VRAM Do You Need
Last Updated: 10-19-2019
Video card memory (VRAM) temporarily stores data for quick retrieval. The more video memory you have, the more image information your video card can store away for quick and easy access.
These are not official guidelines. They are my opinions on the matter.
|Type of Computer||Recommended Video RAM|
|Office / Work Computers|
(for non-Multimedia use)
|1-2GB of VRAM|
|Gaming / Multimedia Systems (<1080p)||2-4GB of VRAM|
|Gaming / Multimedia (1080p)||4GB of VRAM|
|Gaming / Multimedia (2k)||6-8GB of VRAM|
|Gaming / Multimedia (4k)||8-12GB of VRAM|
“Office / Work Computers” — any computer that is used for word processing, spreadsheets, and anything else that is generally used in an office.
“Gaming / Multimedia” — any computer that is used to play games, develop FX effects for videos, video editing, etc.
