    Does the 8gb version of the sp2 allocate more memory as vram compared to the 4gb version? Thanks

    I tried to find my vram allocation on my 8gb machine but couldn't find where to view it. Sorry.

    My 8G SP2 reports 1792M - maybe somebody can post the result for 4G (get this from screen resolution->advanced settings from right clicking the desktop)

    This matches with the maximum allowed, as specified by Intel: Graphics — Graphics Memory FAQ for Microsoft Windows 8*

    Note that this is shared memory, not dedicated, so you're not guaranteed to be able to claim all of this if there are other demands on the system.

    My 4GB/128 SP2 also shows 1792MB VRAM, so I guess - no there is no difference.
