Detailed description:
Hello,
I have an issue that needs a bios update from the developers. In a nutshell, the VRAM of the integrated AMD Radeon Vega 8 video card is set to 2 GB by default, taking it out of the amount of RAM that can actually be used (leaving only 6). For home use or otherwise without using applications that require a certain amount of VRAM, this setting is counter productive. Analyzing more deeply the bios (latest version) I discovered that there is a hidden option, not activable, if not operating directly on the motherboard, called "AMD UMA Buffer size" or similar. This option should be enabled with an update from the bios developers so that the amount of VRAM allocated can be changed.

@Blake_ASUS can you do something about this?

Hello maicol07,
I'm sorry, the hidden options in BIOS would not be opened.
Thank you.

Why not? Can't the developer just enable the option with an update?
