Using Multiple Graphics Devices

Using the best of multiple graphics devices available on your system.

Multiple Graphics Devices: We have noted that a laptop may show multiple devices with dxdiag report, and that FieldView may run with Intel HD Graphics when (for instance) a better NVIDIA device is available. We know that for NVIDIA, you can use NVIDIA’s “Manage 3D Settings” to have FieldView (or XDBView) use the NVIDIA device. (You may need to make the entry for FieldView or XDBview yourself, depending on how recent a video driver you are using.) To see all devices on your Windows systems, you can review a report “dxdiag.txt” by creating it using:

dxdiag /t %HOMEPATH%\Desktop\dxdiag.txt
