Config dGPU not listed for Surface Book

Post by shermanpat » 10 Nov 2015, 21:11

So Just got my hand on a surface book and trying to do some testing. Noticed that the Ventuz Configuration only shows me the Intel hd520 GPU and not the Nvidia dGPU. (see picture showing config set up and GPUZ to show the 2 GPUs onboard.

I would guess that this problem if less of a Ventuz issue and more of how Microsoft is implementing the switching from the Nvidia dGPU and the Intel GPU. But want to see if anyone has input on how to test what GPU is active and possible fixes.

my Zenbook with an Intel HD and a dedicated nVidia GPU also only shows the intel GPU. It does however correctly use the nVidia once Ventuz is started (at least if you configure nVidia to use the GPU for Ventuz).

Best,

Smells like a power saving config or a malfunctioning driver >.>

See my post in the other thread.... LD;DR: install Nvidia Geforce Experience, set up Nvidia as the Default GPU for Ventuz.

Saw that, Thanks. I didn't really think it was a Bug on your side...
