MY catalyst shows 512MB on my Grafic card.While internet site "Can you run it" shows 1 GB. Question isLaughoes every ATI card uses hypermemory feature? Mine is HD5450.

Hypermemory is shared memory. Shared memory is slower. The dedicated 512mb is what really counts.

I believe any modern GPU allocates memory in addition to any it has dedicated.

By the way , 512 is enough for gaming now a days Tongue

Only some of the lower end models (as in extremely low-end). Using system memory would just slow down the better cards.

it happends to me too in my old desktop/GPU GF 9500GT 512mb
when i was WinXP it stays at 512mb on the "Can you run it" sessions
if your using Win7 in the "Can you run it" sessions it was 1GB memory (512mb base+512mb Win7 Shared memory) but i think the MAIN ram will suffer when i check on the task manager...
e.g.(based are no programs running in my task manager)
WinXP=300mb+
Win7=800mb+
Main Hub:i5-4670(3.4Ghz Factory Clocked),ATi Radeon HD7770(GDDR5+128-bit+1GB),Win 10 SL(x64),ASUS H8M-E,8GB DDR3 RAM

@ ilovejedd:
So my GTX 460 is an "extremely low-end" GPU? Dedicated=1024mb, Allocated=1500mb, Total=2524mb.

But yeah, that excess v-ram is basically useless.

Can you run it isn't exactly a reliable app anyway, according to it I can't run Call of Duty 4 at recommended settings cause I don't have a dual core @ 2.4Ghz, yet it's showing my CPU as a 4GHz dual-core... what? And it's a 4GHz CPU rated 6GHz... rated based in what... how can they rate GHz rated in another GHz???? Do they even know what GHz are? Tongue2

@ Shadow Lady:
LOL! Apparently not. It rated my 2.8Ghz Core 2 Duo as the same thing as a 2.2Ghz Pentium Dual. It has even told me my 2.8Ghz Core 2 Duo isn't enough, that I need at least a 2.6Ghz Core 2 Duo. Rolleyes

Yeah, "Can You Run It?" is very commercialized. There are even some games my GT 230M could run before, but suddenly wasn't enough for when the 400 series came out...

Meh, you can ignore the shared/allocated memory. It's unlikely that the GPU actually uses that. All that matters is dedicated memory.

It uses it only when dedicated memory is exceded.I mean he first uses dedicated memory and if it can not load everything into it it uses shared memory.
