If you need to perform certain GPU-intensive tasks, like 3D modeling or playing top-tier games, it can be useful to know your Windows 11 PC’s VRAM amount. There’s an easy way to check this, and we’ll show you how.


Fortunately, Windows 11 includes a built-in option to check the VRAM, so you don’t have to install or use a third-party app. To check your PC’s VRAM, first, launch Settings on your PC by pressing the Windows+i keyboard shortcut.

In Settings, from the left sidebar, select “System.”

Select "System" on the left.

On the right pane, choose “Display.”

Choose "Display" on the right.

In the “Display” menu, at the bottom, click “Advanced Display.”

Select "Advanced Display" at the bottom.

On the “Advanced Display” screen that opens, in the “Display Information” section, choose “Display Adapter Properties for Display 1.”

A window will open on your screen. In this window, next to “Dedicated Video Memory,” you will see your PC’s VRAM. In the below example, it’s 128 MB.
