Low Dedicated VRam on Acer Predator Helios 300

edited February 6 in Predator Laptops
My Helios 300 has been preforming great so far but for some reason it only has 126mb of dedicated vram, making it run terribly on vram heavy games.

Is there anyway I can fix this? When I searched the specs for the Helios 300 it said that it had 6gb of vram, what's going on here?

    Usually integrated graphics take around 128MB.

    You most likely running from the Intel HD graphics instead of the GTX 1060. Go to nvidia control panel>3d settings and from preferred graphics processor select high performance nvidia(you can do that for the game you are playing only by going to program settings instead of global settings).
    Always post the following characterisitcs of the device:
    -Model number
    -Part number(not required, but helpful)
    -CPU
    -GPU
    -Operating system

    Helios 300 and Nitro 5 users DO NOT update the BIOS to version 1.22 if you don't want the keyboard's backlight to turn off after 30 seconds even when the device is plugged in.
