Multi GPU issues

If you have two GPUs in your system, it is possible that Enscape uses the slower one or doesn’t run at all. For example, some machines have an Intel onboard GPU, which is not designed for demanding computing applications. You have to make sure that Enscape does use your dedicated NVIDIA or AMD graphics card and not your onboard Intel GPU.

Mobile NVIDIA graphics card

For NVIDIA cards, this can be adjusted in the control panel at Manage 3D Settings > Preferred Graphics Processor:

Multiple GPU

Mobile AMD graphics card

Please follow these instructions to switch from your onboard graphics to AMD:

  1. Right Click your Desktop
  2. Select “Configure Switchable Graphics”
  3. The AMD Catalyst Control Center should have opened.(1) – The “list” of programs
    (2) – “Add Application”, if Revit is not contained in the “list”
    (3) – “revit.exe” select this list item
    (4) – Select “High Performance” under “Graphics Settings”


4. Apply and close the window.

General Solution for Intel HD (Desktop + Mobile)

If the solutions above do not work for you or you are working on a desktop machine, please follow these instructions to disable the Intel graphics card via the windows device manager:

  1. Open the Device Manager by pressing Windows + Break
  2. Click on the “Device Manager” link in the left top corner
  3. Right click on the Intel HD graphics card
  4. Click on “Disable”


WARNING: On some systems, this step can be harmful and has to be reverted in Windows safe-mode.

Your system will now automatically use the second GPU in your system. This solution does work for desktop and mobile machines. However, if you are using a notebook, you probably want to follow the instructions above, because disabling your Intel HD graphics card can increase your power consumption and therefore reduce your battery time.
