Laptop Graphic Frame Buffer Size
Posted on 2004-09-23
i have a Toshiba Satellite laptop with some ATI mobility Radeon 7000 IGp
2.8 p4 and 1000+ ram
i am just trying to figure out what the frame buffer does and what will benefit by dedicating more ram to it. I know it has something to do with graphics but is it worth setting it to use 128 system ram vs the default 64? iT has 3 settings, 32, 64, 128 which represents the amount of ram it takes from my total ram which is 1024 and reserves it for the memory card i believe. So someone just brief me about frame buffer size and how it affects performance.
I am not a extreme gamer nor a strictly email and chat person. just to give u an idea of what kind of use i am. I play a few older games like starcraft which need near to nothing to play and would like to play games like counter-strike and other moderately intensive games if possible.
