New Win­dows 10 up­date will pro­vide more GPU op­tions

APC Australia - - TECHNOTES -

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.
