          Indeed your Intel GPU is limited to OpenGL 3.1

           

          However your GeForce GPU supports OpenGL 4.5

          www.geforce.com/hardware/notebook-gpus/geforce-gt-540m/specifications

           

          Force "Topaz Studio" to use the dedicated GPU.

          Here is a guide for DELL laptops:
