A very common issue that impacts the stability of highly graphics and GPU intensive applications like Autodesk design software and even the stability of the OS. Many times the issue at the core of a crash can be the display drivers and graphics cards. This support article will help you tune your graphics card to get the most stable environment possible.
How to configure Autodesk software to use the high-performance graphics card (GPU) on systems with dual video (integrated and discrete graphics)?
Causes:To optimize battery life, many laptop PCs contain a graphics adapter integrated into the motherboard. It is used for basic graphics display, along with a faster discrete graphics adapter for more demanding graphical tasks.
When working with Autodesk applications that are graphically intense, the switching of the graphics adapter in the middle of operation can lead to display and performance issues or program crashes. Also, by default, the system may load the software with the low-end video option and not switch to the high-performance GPU. Configuring the system to always use discrete graphics for the software will avoid these issues.
