Make DirectX Use Dedicated Graphics Adapter RRS feed

  • Question

  • So, I've been following these tutorials:


    And I was just wondering, whenever I run the program, it selects the default graphics adapter. On my computer, it's a crappy onboard Intel adapter, but there's a nice juicy nVidia GTX 675 to use...I was wondering how to force DirectX to use that one instead? Thanks!

  • Hi Jack,

    This forum is for discussion of writing Windows Store apps using DirectX 11. From the tutorials you link it sounds like you are writing a desktop app using DirectX 11. Please post questions about writing desktop DirectX apps in the DirectX forums on xboxforums.create.msdn.com .
