    Which GPU renders what when using both integrated and discrete GPUs simultaneously?

    ladorm

      If I connect one monitor to the discrete GPU and another to the onboard, how is it determined which GPU renders which parts?

       

      If I open a game on the monitor connected on the discrete, I guess it'll be rendered the discrete, but what happens if for example I put the game in windowed mode and move it in between both monitors?

       

      Will each GPU render half of the game? If so, what happens with the difference in rendering speed?

       

      Will it still be rendered by de discrete? If so, how does the information get to the other monitor?

       

      Thanks!
