    2047 instead of 2048 VRAM


    This is not a problem, I just want to know the reason, if there is any.

    Does anybody know why I have 2047 MB on my video card memory instead of 2048 MB? Why's that 1 MB missing?

    The numbers in the bottom image suggests 2 different things, the 2048 is physical and the 2047 being Shared seems to be normal, don't think there's anything wrong. I have the GT 710 on my newest/ASUS computer and it shows Total as 9173MB, Dedicated as 1024MB and Shared as 8149MB. I have 16GB physical RAM on the motherboard. The Dedicated graphics memory is on the card itself but Windows still does its thing in the sharing.

    Speccy is showing the shared system memory instead of the dedicated memory from your graphics card.

    2047 MB or 2048 MB is a matter of rounding numbers in the different softwares, too boring to go in to that.
    You have 2 GB of Graphics Card RAM, and 2 GB of possible shared RAM from your main RAM. Thus a potential total of 4 GB.

    As said, it's a rounding issue with Speccy.

    It isn't too boring for me. How can it be rounding as 2048 is a power of 2. It isn't as if it is 2047.999 and they truncated it.

    It could be wrong (typical Speccy really) but I don't see how it is a rounding error.

    I had a try and I can't get 2048 to come out as 2047 whatever combinations of multiplying by 1024 and dividing by 1000 I try with random truncations of decimals in the middle.

    Perhaps they simply subtracted one.
