Computers have several crucial components inside them and one such component is VRAM which stands for Video Random Access Memory and is part of a discrete graphics card or GPU installed on your PC. It is responsible for loading and executing graphics-intensive tasks.

On desktop computers, it’s a modular component that can be replaced with another GPU, but on laptops, the component is soldered onto the motherboard, which means it can’t be changed. If you want to check some VRAM information on your device, there are several ways to do it.

In this step-by-step guide, we’ll show you how to quickly and easily check some basic VRAM information, including available memory, usage data, and temperature on your computer via the built-in Task Manager application.
