Graphics Adapter

This section collects data regarding the Graphics Adapter, or GPU, that your users have on their machines. It will display all physical graphics adapters found, regardless of whether them being dedicated or integrated. It will also show the amount of memory that each adapter can use, be it dedicated or shared from RAM. If the machine has multiple graphics adapters, they will all be displayed separately, delimited by a + character.

Let's say that your user has two graphics adapters, an integrated Intel UHD Graphics with 1GB of shared memory, and a dedicated Nvidia GTX 1060 3GB with 3GB of dedicated memory. If that user installs your package, the Graphics Adapter section will report like this:

Intel UHD Graphics 1GB + Nvidia GTX 1060 3GB 3GB

Please note that in this case, repeating the 3GB is not a bug. "Nvidia GTX 1060 3GB" represents the model of the graphics adapter while the extra 3GB represents the actual amount of memory detected by Installer Analytics.

There is no limit to the number of graphics adapters that can be displayed. The only downside of a machine with many graphics adapters is that the UI will have to show a long string containing all adapters.

Some special cases will not be treated/shown in this section. One of them is when the user installs your package on a virtual machine. Generally, VMs use virtual adapters that generally have no dedicated memory. Since we do not display any adapter that doesn't have memory, most of these adapters will not be reported.

docsPlease note that to populate this section, you need to use Advanced Installer 20.2 or newer.
