New Windows 10 update will provide more GPU options
In mid-August, the Windows 10 team released a preview of build 20190 to Windows Insiders via the Dev Channel. The new update comes with a change that gives users more control over GPU settings – especially those with multiple GPUs.
The first new change enables Windows to determine which is the power-saving GPU and which is a discrete graphics card. When starting an application, Windows 10 will decide what GPU an application requires. So if gaming, Windows 10 will use a discrete graphics card. For web browsing or productivity it will switch to a power saving GPU.
Another change is an option so users can assign a specific GPU to individual applications.
