    Intel HD + Discrete Graphics Card

    Flyginger

      Hello everyone.

       

      Does Intel HD in somehow way used by CPU while discrete graphics card is plugged?

       

      I assume situation where discrete graphics card is properly installed, enabled, configured and fully responsible for rendering.

       

      I've searched through google and founded that people say it's completely idle.

       

      However, I'm little bit surprised because my initial thinking was that it's used for floating point calculations to leverage system resources.

       

      I'm sorry if such kind of question was already asked several times before and could bore You but I really want to know truth behind the case.

       

      I'm also sorry if I posted this in wrong place.

       

      Regards, newbie.
