Increasing sVGA Ram capacity

With the VMware Workstation 16, is there a way, in a windows 10 Vm, to increase the GPU Ram size of the VMware SVGA 3d gpu device greater than 128 mb?

I've been able to adjust the Graphics memory, under hardware display, but the SVGA remains at 128mb regardless.

Hello Pickle,

What you are seeing is expected, you can't change that.

See this answer from BlueFireStorm: https://communities.vmware.com/t5/VMware-Workstation-Pro/Graphics-memory-stuck-on-128mb/td-p/513352 for more details.

Thanks Will, I had seen posts from 4-6 years ago but nothing recently so wasn't sure if things had improved.
