How to check Video Memory (VRAM) available in Windows 11 computer

Similar to how RAM (Random Access Memory) is used to store temporary system files on your computer, VRAM (Video RAM) is used to store the image data. It is much faster than the RAM but the memory allocated to the VRAM is quite less compared to the RAM available on the system.

Unlike the regular RAM, it cannot be replaced on PCs with different GPUs in most cases. VRAM acts as a buffer between the CPU and video card processor to ensure the uninterrupted running of games or other graphics-intensive applications.

Here is a step-by-step guide to check how VRAM is available on your computer running the Windows 11 operating system.
