  • Dedicated RAM on a video device is RAM that is used only for that device, usually built onto the card (such as in a desktop), or on the motherboard or GPU in a notebook. What you get is what you get- it's not upgradeable. My notebook has 512MB of dedicated DDR3 RAM, while my system uses DDR2. Since they are separate RAM, one cannot borrow from the other.
