I just recently got a Acer ASPIRE 4830TG, and it has 2 GPU in it.

How do I know which GPU is being used in certain application? Do I use Nvidia Control Panel such as this one?

What is the difference between "Use Global Setting: Auto Select Nvidia GPU" and "High Performance Nvidia Processor." ?

Do I go to Acer's site to acquire the driver for Geforce 540M, rather than Nvidia's site?
Any known benchmark for the 540M? :mrgreen:

  • You should have something in your system tray that tells you which one your using.
  • The control panel allows you to fine tune which one to use.
  • Setting it on High Performance won't intelligently decide which one to use, but the nVida GPU all the time.
  • Some manufacturers tweak their systems to only allow their drivers to be used. Try nVidia, if you can't then go back to Acer.
  • GT 540m
