Integrated and Discrete GPUs

Post by another_commander » Thu Mar 22, 2018 8:17 am

Just dropping a quick note here to let you know that, if you are running the game on a system that has both a dedicated and an integrated graphics chipset, from tonight's build onwards, Oolite will be launching on the high-performance GPU by default.

If you want to have Oolite running on the integrated GPU for some reason (e.g. power consumption), then you will have to create a profile for oolite.exe that specifically requires the low-perf GPU. I believe this can be done via the NVidia Control Panel or its AMD equivalent.

*sigh*
if it only were that simple to setup both devices with the integrated card.
Switching the BIOS settings is not the best approach e.g. when having a BitLocker Windows partition on the laptop.
