GPU Memory setting on RPi4b - why 256MB is best?

Sun Aug 11, 2019 6:54 am

I read the threads below, suggesting not more than 256MB is needed for GPU memory.
FYI I have a 4GB RPi4b, no camera (yet), using a 4K HDMI display (using as a mini media centre)

Can someone explain how the GPU uses memory (or a reference) and why the 256MB is all that is needed (looking for a more detailed understanding) - Thanks!
