OT grafic card

Hi edgers,


maybe anybody here can explain following - for me - strange info from my notebook.

 

I am using a celsius mobile workstation with a Quadro K1000M in it.

But the Solid Edge Performance Test as well as the NVIDIA Systeminfo (nvidia driver is installed and running) shows an Intel HD Graphics 4000 Display

Solid Edge also uses the fiull hardware grafic within its settings.

 

Has this to do with notebook, motherboard, K1000M?

 

Thanks for any answers

regards

Wolfgang

All of your laptops with the newer Intel processors have integrated Intel HD graphics even if they have a discreet graphics card.  With NVIDIA's driver, it will manage using the HD Graphics for things like Office use or other non-3D use and then auto-switch to the Quadro graphics when an app needs 3D.  This is done to conserve power in the laptops.  See the following: http://www.nvidia.com/object/optimus_technology.html

Hi Ken,


OK, and how can I let the notebook know to use the Quadro instead of the Intel?

For me it seems as Solid Edge use the onboerd INtel and not the Quadro.

Could that be?

Possibly. May depend on the laptop model as to whether it utilizes the Optimus tech. As far as I know you would have to turn it off in BIOS.
