i have lenovo 300 15isk 80q7 with
4 gb ddr3 RAM
AMD Radeon R5 M330
intel core i3

the graphic card has 2gb dedicated memory, but windows's "adapter setting" shows only
128MB for dedicated video memory!!!
and
2106 MB for total available graphics memory

however, the adapter properties titled with "Intel(R) HD Graphics 520" and it won't show for AMD Radeon R5 M330

question is:
1.how much dedicated memory for this vga should windows recognize?
2.why windows don't show properties of Radeon R5 M330 ?
3. what can i do about this??

thanks in advance

I'd suggest that what you are seeing is 12MB of shared memory from ram for the igpu (HD520) and the 2048 is for the R5.

If you use GPU-Z it may show both of them, it might be that windows will only tell you about the one is use right now, which most of the time is the HD520.

Picture of device manager would help.

look into your bios of mobile video card settings, normally that is where you can decide (if bios permits and is not hard coded)
Also a lot of the time the mobile video cards are configured for auto sharing, meaning when it does not need to use 2048MB it uses less leaving more ram for your pc to use for windows usage
