The video processors are "integrated" and share memory with the system.

Please also note that the video processor cannot be upgraded in any "Unibody" MacBook Pro models. MacBook Pro "Mid-2009" and earlier models additionally cannot be upgraded to automatically switch between graphics processors depending on need. These models require one to log out and log back in to switch between integrated and dedicated graphics.
