  • Page 42 Parameter Memory Hole at 15M-16M Certain ISA cards require exclusive access to the 1MB block of memory, from the 15th to the 16th megabyte, to work properly. This BIOS feature allows you to reserve that 1MB block of memory for such cards to use. If you enable this feature, 1MB of memory (the 15th MB) will be reserved exclusively for the ISA card's use.
  • Page 43 Parameter On-Chip Frame Buffer Size This BIOS feature controls the amount of system memory that is allocated to the integrated graphics processor when the system boots up. However, its effect depends on whether your motherboard supports the older Unified Memory Architecture (UMA) or the new Dynamic Video Memory Technology (DVMT).
  • Page 44 Parameter DVMT Mode Unified Memory Architecture (UMA) is a concept whereby system memory is shared by both CPU and graphics processor. While this reduces cost, it also reduces the system's performance by taking up a large portion of memory for the graphics processor. Intel's Dynamic Video Memory Technology (DVMT) takes that concept further by allowing the system to dynamically allocate memory resources according to the demands of...
