    Win10 won't use particular program with High-Performance graphic card


    Hello

    I have an Asus Vivobook Pro, i7 and nVidia GTX1050. I need to run a program (thinkorswim which is a trading platform for stocks, futures....)) with the dedicated GPU GTX1050. I added the program in the nVidia control panel under 'manage 3d settings'. I also configured the program under Win10 Graphics settings to use the GPU. Nothing solves the issue.

    There is just no activity on the GPU 1 (nVidia) under the Performance tab in Task manager. I contacted the support of thinkorswim and we checked several things. But everything looks fine. Now, he said I should check my power plan, which is all set to high performance.

    When I run a game I see immediately that GPU1 starts to show activity.

    So I asking here in hope that someone has an idea regarding to Win10 and settings. Before I had installed the GPU driver from the official Asus website. So I tried the latest nVidia driver. I did a clean install.

    I'm on Windows 10 home, the latest update.Win10 won't use particular program with High-Performance graphic card-2.pngWin10 won't use particular program with High-Performance graphic card-1.png

    Hi, you may be battling with Nvidia's Optimus algorithm:

    Thank you. I just red that article. It seems to make sense. Is there a way to bypass the Optimus algo?

    I'd be interested if there were... I have a laptop with a Nvidia graphics card, and I may as well not have bought it as far as I can see..
