  2. Hi RajesgRD, based upon the M335 (Tonga, released June 2015) using GDDR3 and 1070MHz clock it's certainly a 2GB GPU as you quickly gathered, I doubt the information within AMD CCC is wrong but worth checking with GPU-Z (post to download link) than relying on one tool alone as that is more than good enough. The M335 is noted by AMD to go "up to" 4GB but I found that 2GB M335 was more common at low-end but ofc manufacturers have flexibility depending on their range - exact specifications MUST be given and be accurate at the time it's publicly available to avoid undue stress . (email them + keep everything written down of what you are doing, never use the phone, to keep the complaint official) Therefore as it features only 2GB VRAM it doesn't fit your needs and depending on the time you purchased this item which is normally 30-days, you are entitled to full refund or free replacement (factory sealed and not a refurbished unit) until you are satisfied. At no point (depending on your consumer rights in your region but noted you are from UK same as me) should you normally be expected to return the item at your costs, it's up to them to pick it up unless you are happy to be refunded P&P costs. As you are returning the item, the period for returns is paused and can be return again until they rectify their mistake otherwise once the normal period for returns is over you lose your right to full refund/replacement and likely will only receive a refurbished unit. The onus is on them. Again, this depends on your regional laws but most of this applies nonetheless. On the Intel website (direct link) they do note the Inspiron 17 5000 features 4GB VRAM: "MD Radeon R5 M335 4GB DDR3". Amazon also list (link #1 / link #2) the 4GB M335, For reference here's the Videocardz database entry: https://videocardz.net/amd-radeon-r5-m335/ Since you mention it was sold promising 4GB video memory then iGPU doesn't count as you can only pair with dedicated GPU if it was an AMD APU, in any case pairing them brings very little gains to performance.

    Welcome to the forum 1stCowGirl! As standard the driver and Physx are the only components I install. It's the installation file accessing those URLs no matter what you do or do not install. As I did, use your firewall to block this even though it appears harmless but unnecessary on the part of Nvidia, same goes for Nvidia's telemetry (meant for diagnosing bugs but monitoring nonetheless) once you have installed selected components.

  14. Can't go far wrong with MSI and a nice upgrade too! Paying $60 extra for 8GB version seems a bit steep and think $30 would be fairer as it's just an extra £25 here. Hope you took the sticker off Yes I know you've only took it out the box
