Ryzen 3200 Using 2gb Ram

Ah so setting it to 512mb still dedicates 2 gigs to the igpu, if so, you could try clearing the cmos and trying to set it to 512mb again, you could also try updating the chipset drivers, but as I said, if you let's say dedicate 512mb for the igpu, and if the i-gpu needed more ram as a frame buffer, it will use more ram no matter what.

I am building a home pc for someone using the Gigabyte b450m ds3h, Ryzen 3200G, and 16gb ram. I have played with the BIOS and no matter what I do, the damn iGPU uses 2-2.1gb of RAM. Can anyone tell me wtf is happening? I have followed what every says to do (I went to chipset, Set Integrated Graphics to "Forces", Set UMA Mode to "UMA Specified", Set UMA Frame Buffer Size to "512 M", 756m , and 1g). The bios is up to date. "F51" I believe. Thanks.

This in normal intended functioning of igpu. If you don't want graphics to use system memory a dedicated gpu is required

You can set a certain amount of ram for the i-gpu, though if the i-gpu needs more ram, it will draw more either way, this usage isn't really weird.

I am familiar with it using RAM as vRAM. My Thinkpad with Ryzen 5 did the same thing until I lowered it to 513mb. This is hooked to a 27" 1080 monitor. No games, just office/home usage only. What has me scratching my head is that it has worked for others. I know my laptop has a smaller screen but it does have the same resolution and has given me no issues when it was lowered.

As I had mentioned, I even did 1gb...sucker still took 2-2.1gb. I was a bit sleep deprived, so I didn't think of clearing cmos. I will report my findings later.
