I installed the HTC Vive. the process has been painful at best, and makes me wonder how the average consumer is supposed to get VR tech to work and have a dependable game market when tech people have trouble getting it working… but that’s besides the point.
I realized that my display and my Vive are both using my integrated Intel 530 graphics, which is **** and i suspect the reason the Vive is not found (although I cannot be sure).
I have switched some software like Steam, Maya and Unreal to use my Nvidia GTX 970M card, which should give me enough performance for what I need to do. However, I cannot figure out how to
1 ) Get my Displays to JUST use my Nvidia as a default.
2 ) I can’t just choose SteamVR like I can other software and set the preferred GPU to my Nvidia instead of the integrated graphics.
I’m so surprised this is actually an issue, you pay extra money for these cards and then they are NOT automatically used as the graphics card? How does that work?
Does anyone have an idea on this? This is just my hunch about what I can do to get around this issue. I’m not even sure this will solve the problem that i’m having.
