What does CVRAM mean or stand for ?
CVRAM is similar to the regular RAM – random access memory but is used exclusively for video display on the computer monitor.The RAM is used to store programs and run them in the allocated memory space.
CVRAM is a dynamic memory that is used to store video data before it can be processed and sent to the monitor for us to see.It is called as a “buffer” because it forms a medium between the monitor and CPU.If we need additional VRAM then we need to install a graphics card that is capable of running high end graphics with large memory.
Most of the VRAM is “cached” so that it can be retrieved faster and more efficiently without reading the bytes again.
