Memory
Video cards have their own memory, which is reserved for storing graphical images. Video memory frees the computer's RAM so that the computer's memory does not have to store graphics. The size of video memory determines the amount of resolution and the number of colors that can be displayed by your monitor. Typically, a card with a higher memory capacity will be capable of more advanced rendering and support for 2-D and 3-D graphics. Video cards use either SDR (single data rate) or DDR (double data rate) memory. DDR (double data rate) memory provides twice the memory bandwidth of single data rate (SDR) memory video card.

Integrated graphics solutions incorporate the graphics controller directly into the system chipset. In systems utilizing these solutions, the computer's processor is used to assist in graphics processing, and the system's memory is treated as a shared resource utilized for both system memory and video memory tasks.

So either the Video card is shared or Dedicated....
In your case it's shared!!
