    Impossible to chooze the GPU in settings


    Hello!


    I was need to switch the GPU for exact apps. I've got two GPUs: GeForce RTX 2070 discrete graphics card and Intel R UHD Graphics 630.

    Windows Intel R UHD Graphics 630 uses it by default. I go to ["NVIDIA Control Panel" -> "3D Settings" -> "App settings" -> choosing 'app.exe' in the list -> choosing 'NVIDIA GPU' in the list -> "Apply"]. But there is a message, that "Choosing GPU is now made by OS Windows" and the link to Windows settings.

    In that Windows' settings window "Graphics Settings" I choose "Usual app" and choose *.exe that I need. And that's the problem: Windows wants to chooze one of three parameters: "Let Windows set the GPU", "Power safety" and "High performance". But both in "Power safety" and "High performance" are "Intel R UHD Graphics 630" see screenshot.

    So how can I set the GeForce RTX 2070 as a performance GPU? I have checked all the drivers, updates and licenses, it's all OK with them.


    Thanks in advance!

    :)

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
    Core speeds
    Memory speeds

    Impossible to chooze the GPU in settings

    Is there a way to force a program to use a secondary GPU?

    I have 2 GPU's (Nvidia GTX 970 and 1080) and I want to force a program to use the 1080 for certain programs/games. Going to Settings>System>Display>Graphics Settings should give me the option to switch GPU's. Unfortunately it does not list both of my GPU's
    nor does it allow me to change to another one, only the default GPU is chosen (the 970). This is a desktop computer and I have tried the Nvidia control panel and UEFI settings without much luck. If I tried selecting a program to run on my 1080 (through the
    Nvidia control panel), it would still run it on the 970. I have tried switching the GPU's around with not much luck there either. If I can suggest to Microsoft the option in the Graphics Settings to list both GPU's for selection, that would be great. Otherwise
    I don't know what to do. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you for your time.
