Video card Shared memory went from 15go to 3go (Os changed win8 to 7)

hi guys (first of all sorry for my bad english)
i have asus g75vx with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670MX
when i was on windows 8 i had 15 go shared memory for my video card as shown in this screenshot :

but when i change to win7 pro x64 it went down to nearly 3go :

ps :
1- driver is updated
2- i'm not sure but i believe after i installed my windows7 and video card driver it was like in win 8 the shared memory : 15go and went down to 3go those last days

Thanks a lot guys for any support <3
