We use TOSHIBA Qosmio X870 - PSPLXC-02G00F models that have dual video capabilities.

 

They have a 3GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670M, and 2GB Intel® HD Graphics 4000 that shares memory from the 12GB RAM ...... or so I understand.

 

In NVIDIA’s Control Panel, we can configure specific programmes to use either of the video adapters. Does anyone have any idea which of Softplan’s programmes should be configured to use the NVIDIA card and which the Intel graphics for best results.

 

Got to admit, I’m a little out of my depth here, so any help would be appreciated. I have also sent this to Tech Support, but don't know how expert they are with the hardware.

 

Is anyone else using Qosmio's? or is there a hardware expert in the house ....

 

Thanks.

If you sent it to support, they'll probably tell you that the NVIDIA card is not compatible with Softplan, that you need a gaming card. I have a NVIDIA and works ok at least with 2014

Yvon, The Qosmio is a gaming laptop ... The GTX 670M is specifically for gaming.
