On desktops I select which GPU by where I plug in. And never encountered your issue so I worry you are dreaming up this issue. On laptops they come all sorted out and again never had an issue and across hundreds of laptops the only time it was a problem was pilot error or the owner had tinkered too hard.
Chicken Little issue?
Switchable Graphics and Slave Configurations , Nvidia Cards Catching Fire , Iray not supporting Geoforce GTX cards as millions of people rush out to buy Nvidia GTX cards to improve their graphical rendering and I couldn't be more confused or weary about making a computer purchase.
My 3D program doesn't support the 530 adapters in Switchable Graphics and I was wondering if disabling it would result in the loss of processor speed or if the slave configuration would completely lock me out of the GPU's control panel as it's done in the past as I look for a new system. Intel says to go straight to the board manufacture about that BIOS information but I'm shopping , not building so sometimes that can be tricky.
Another concern is that do the GPU drivers created for a Switchable Graphics Program correspond the same once the slave configuration is disabled ? What conflicts are their and how do you avoid them ?
I need to have some idea about the BIOS and the Switchable Graphics in a system before I buy it. It's absurd to pay a thousand dollars for a computer and not be able to open your software or and even more absurd to be completely locked out from the control panel of your discrete GPU.
If their is a better configuration and is it possible to avoid the Switchable Graphics all together in the market with out building your own system ?
I use a 3D program named ICLONE6 and do some rendering with 3D Delight in DAZ. ICLONE6 does not support the 530 adapter much like Auto Desk hasn't in the past.
Can any one help make this process less confusing ?
