Hi! 

 

Is there a way to add more VRAM to my GPU, I've seen videos about it, but I want to make sure I/m doing the right thing, currently I have a R5 3600, 16GB RAM, 1060 3GB. I would like to increase my VRAM on my GPU.

 

Thanks!

No you can't.

 

And with no you can't, I mean "It's probably technically possible, through soldering some more stuff in, hacking a new BIOS in.. etc.", so that means it's impossible for 99.99% of people.

You also have to change out the VRAM controller, which means swapping out the GPU die... Which means changing the entire rest of the board. Not even the 0.01% can do it.

Probably not even that AFAIK they have cut traces on a lot of cards to not allow it.  Maybe if your very skilled you can replace what is there with higher capacity chips.

I found this, it kinda looks sketchy, but it looks like it works.

Alright, it looks like the consensus is that there is no way to get more.

 

Do you think that 3GB is enough, the most demanding game I'm going to run is Cyberpunk 2077.

That's just telling the system to dedicate a certain amount of the shared system RAM to the GPU. This only applies to Intel integrated GPUs. (and all it really does is reduce RAM available to the system)

It's going to be hurting with that little VRAM, unless running at minimum settings.

hmmmm, ok. I've also heard that running 3GB VRAM+32GB RAM is a good combo. Any thoughts?

Unless doing 4k video editing, or rendering, (or trying to get dual rank performance increases which are usually about 1%) there is no need for more than 16GB of system RAM at this point in time. The sweet spot for VRAM is 8GB, as long as you don't plan on using max settings at 1440p or higher resolution.

It's not integrated gpu, more ram won't help much. From my perspective it's an odd combo, in gaming especially.
