[Feedback] Limited BIOS Settings | Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-52

Hello,

I want to share feedback. I found it surprising that a laptop that Acer brands as gaming laptop have very limited settings in BIOS. Settings like shared GPU memory or disable primary GPU can not be found anywhere. 

I'd like to know what does the community think about it.

    Well, I don't think that allowing people to manage the amount of RAM shared with GPU is going to brick the laptop.
