Hello- we just purchased some laptops for design work that are of the MSI brand.
Here are the basic Specs:
-nVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M 192bit w/3.0GB GDDR5
-Intel Core i7-6700HQ Processor (2.6~3.5GHz) w/6M Smart Cache - 4 Cores - 8 Threads
-16GB (2x 8GB) DDR4/2133MHz Dual Channel Memory
My question is how to correctly configure the use of the GPU. The units have an LED indicator to indicate when the GPU is in use. The light is on all of the time once pretty much ANY program is opened.
It should only be on when a certain, graphics intensive program is open...so I am thinking something was setup incorrectly?
I do know how to go into the nVidia control panel and set the PhysX configuration and set the 3D settings for the program that we have that requires the GPU..and I have done that. My concern is that it is being overused by being used in all programs. I want to make sure the intel graphics are used for routine programs and that the GPU only kicks in when that specific program is used.
Thanks- Any assistance appreciated!!
