Dedicated Video RAM issue! 256MB or 246MB? Wich do I have?
Hi there!

I'm having some trouble understanding what's the amount of dedicated video RAM my graphic card has!

My graphic card is a NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS on a HP dv9575ep laptop wich is supposed to have 256MB of dedicated video RAM!

The problem is that different applications tell me different information...

Windows Vista itself, GPU-Z and Everest Ultimate Edition tell me that I have 256MB!

But 3DMark06 and System Requirements Lab site tell me that I have 246MB!

What could be the issue here?
Am I missing something here?

Please, if someone could explain this to me I would really apreciate it!
Thanks for the help!
