don't you have the specs?

you can see the bios config, or for example check the ram installed. If you have 4Gb (of system ram), then if the graphic is using the system memory, you will see something less than 4gb in system info. let's say: system memory = 3072 mb and video memory 1024 mb, but you gotta be sure about the total memory installed on your laptop. if that's the case, the graphic card is using the system memory, so DDR3.

THE EASIEST WAY: try GPU-Z, but the info can be ok or not...

you can download it from here:

good luck!

What's your laptop model? In the website of your laptop's manufacturers they usually provide you. In my laptop it was DDR3 provided with my laptop manufacturer, so you would try this method first.

Otherwise you should use GPU-Z linked above. When using GPU-Z it'll be provided whether it's DDR3 or GDDR5.
