Windows 10 Insider Preview 17093 Introduces Preferred GPU Selection For Multi GPU Systems
If you have a Windows 10 Powered device that has Multiple GPUs in it, for example a laptop that spots both Intel integrated graphics & another dedicated GPU from NVIDIA or AMD, Microsoft is bringing advanced control the Performance of Apps & Games on your device.
This was actually introduced in Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 Insider Preview that carries the Version No: 17093 & it gives a little bit more control on how you want to use the power & performance of your device. This option can be Accessed from Settings > System > Display > Advanced Graphics Settings in your Windows 10 PC.
So, as you can see in the Screenshot above, in a particular app that needs GPU horsepower, you can select either let the System decide by selecting the “System Default” option. Otherwise selecting the “Power Saving” option assigns the Integrated GPU for that app or if you select the “High Performance” option, it’ll assign the Dedicated GPU for that app.
By selecting the “Power Saving” option the user loses the best graphical performance available but, saves some power & in “High Performance” mode the system boosts out the best possible graphical performance but, that means it also uses a lot more power. So, users looking to have a great control on their GPUs will definitely benefit from this particular addition to the Windows 10 ecosystem & for general users, this feature might roll out in the next stable Public Build of Windows 10.
