Nvidia Optimus with benchmarking? (not switching to the Nvidia GPU?)

Recommended Posts

As above, thought I'd try to get back into benching a bit just by submitting some scores of my laptop, which has a Nvidia Optimus chip, which switches (in theory) between the HD 4000 and 660M, however I came to the realisation that it wasn't switching when running AQ3, Catzilla or Unigine (won't run Unigine basic at all which I assume is a whole different story) and was just running them using the HD4000, anyone have any experience with this?


From a google it seems certain things can't use the optimus, are benchmarks some examples of software that don't trigger the switch? I can turn off the nvidia gpu in the bios but not the intel.


Any ideas would be appreciated :)
