    Hello all,

    For a while I have been wondering why my brand new special bought HP "gaming" laptop was not giving me the WOW factor I was expecting while using WYSIWYG.
    Looking into it a bit I realised that it might be just using the standard graphics card and not the discrete one.

    Turns out I was right, in NVIDIA control panel you can choose which program uses which graphics card.
    WYSIWYG was not set to use the fancy graphics card, but the standard one.
    I changed it and it is now indeed the WOW that I hoped it would be.
    much smoother performance all over, in CAD and in Design.

    I checked the same thing on my MacbookPro (bootcamp) and the same thing was happening. (also with much better performance)

    I am not sure if this is something that all of you already knew about, but I thought I'd share it here.
