Graphics Aperture Size Tags: Motherboards BIOS Graphics Overclocking Last response: March 28, 2004 5:45 PM in Overclocking Share ponti March 27, 2004 10:32:10 PM Here's a BIOS question... I've got an Asus A7V600 with a PC Radeon 9600 Pro 256MB in it. On the BIOS under "Graphics Aperture Size" it says 64mb... should I increase this to 256, or even higher? What is it, and will it improve performance? Thanks More about : graphics aperture size pIII_Man March 27, 2004 10:56:08 PM bring it to 128mb...many recent boards do not have this option...if your board does not then 256mb is the next best choice. My understanding is how much of your system memory you want to allow the graphics card to be able to use as a frame buffer. If it isn't a P6 then it isn't a processor 110% BX fanboy<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by piii_Man on 03/27/04 07:56 PM.</EM></FONT></P> jclw March 28, 2004 12:13:54 AM You can set it to whatever you want, but with a 256mb card you shouldn't need very much of the system memory when running current games. *Dual PIII-800 @900 i440BX and Tualeron 1.2 @1.7 i815* Related resources Bios graphics aperture size - Forum Graphics Aperture size - Forum What is Graphics Aperture Size? - Forum graphics aperture size on 9800xt? - Forum Newbie question: What is graphics aperture size? - Forum Can't find your answer ?
