    How to choose preferred GPU for programs?


    I currently have 2 GPUs in my system. In the first slot is a RX 570 and in the second slot is a RTX 2080. I use the RX 570 as a display output, and I want to configure windows so that low power tasks are done on my RX 570, and high power tasks such as video rendering and gaming are done on my RTX 2080. When I go to my settings in Windows to configure my GPU preference, both the "Power saving GPU" and the "High performance GPU" are the card that is used as a display output (photo, where the 2080 is used as display output: Imgur: The magic of the Internet).

    Like I said, both the Power Saving option and the high performance option are the same for some reason, so changing this wouldn't help, unless there is a setting to change the Power saving option and High performance option

    I'm not aware that is possible with two discrete graphics cards.

    The nVidia Optimus tech is used on some notebooks. Optimus | Technology | GeForce The low-power GPU is always an integrated one.

    I believe that AMD offers a similar tech, but I can't recall its name.

    I have never seen either on a desktop PC. Maybe some all-in-one PCs, which use laptop parts, have it.
