How to Switch From Integrated GPU to Dedicated GPU (NVIDIA-AMD)

Last Updated:  2020-04-02

If your Android game does not perform as well as you expect with your AMD or Nvidia graphics card on LDPlayer, it may be running with the wrong GPU. Most notebook computers and, sometimes, desktop computers, have more than one GPU: an integrated and a dedicated one. The integrated graphics chipset is built into the processor and makes sure that your computer can use a display even without dedicated GPU. However, more demanding tasks such as gaming require a stronger GPU, which in most cases is the dedicated one. 

 

Switching to the computer's dedicated GPU: For Desktop PC

1. Open NVIDIA Control Panel. You can do this by right-clicking on the desktop and select NVIDIA Control Panel from the context menu. Alternatively, you can open it on control panel if you do not find NIDIVA Control Panel after right-clicking.


Note: If there is no response after you click NVIDIA Control Panel, maybe there is something wrong with your graphics driver. All you have to do is update your graphics driver.
