VRAM ques. when using and multiple monitors
by ronart - 8/3/12 8:46 AM
I'm using OS X 10.8 with two large LCD monitors (Apple and Sony).
My 27" iMac came with 512 MB of VRAM.
If the secondary monitor is turned off is there still only available 256 MB of VRAM available for my primary monitor.
I suspect that's the case and that my secondary monitor would have to be detached for my primary monitor to take full advantage of the 512 MB, but... can someone confirm this?
Also just curious... is there any kind of hardware that can be simply switched that would act as if my secondary monitor is unattached if this is the case. This would certainly be easier than having to unplug it.
