Hello everybody

With a zBook 15 from HP with a graphics card from AMD, AutoCAD always selects the Intel HD Graphic. No matter what you configure in the drivers from AMD. Unfortunately, you can no longer switch off the Intel HD graphics in the BIOS of this model. This was still possible with the previous models.

I have already tried all the measures and the following links from these instructions:
knowledge.autodesk.com/de/support/autocad/troubleshooting/caas/sfdcarticles/sfdcarticles/DEU/AutoCAD-uses-the-wrong-graphics-card.html

Anyone have this problem under control and can they give me instructions on what to do to get the expensive graphics card to work?

Thanks in advance
The Fox

Counter-question: How / with what / about what is the statement determined?

Tried notes from the link:
If you account for assigning the GPU manually and the wrong one is still being used,
or have you already failed while trying to adjust the setting?

Hello Cadffm

Thank you for your question.

It is mainly determined by the lack of performance when crossing the drawing with the mouse. When an instruction is active, the pointer freezes. Often for several seconds. Older, comparable notebooks have considerably more power. The cursor will hang for a fraction of a second at most once. But the Intel HD Graphics can be switched off for them.

The powerful graphics card is also not listed under 3DCONFIG. Only the Intel HD Graphic. In the performance fine-tuning protocol, below, under the second graphics card, is the AMD card. But it is obvious that this is not delivering the power at the moment.

So if a mouse pointer "hangs for several seconds" then there is another problem. I don't see that with the graphics card.
Unless you're doing some monster things.

How do you even try to define the "good" graphics?

Counter tests:
1. Force the Intel graphics on the old laptops and see if it now "hangs for several seconds"
2. Make a new, blank drawing and see whether the effect already occurs there.

With me (NVIDIA card) there are the setting options shown in the pictures in the control panel. I also had to expressly force my system to use the built-in graphics card instead of the onboard.
Possibly. do you find something analog or comparable (?) for your graphics card.

@ nena23, Hello Dirk
I define a good graphics card in such a way that it costs a few hundred euros, while the onboard graphics card is integrated in the CPU. It is clear, however, that such an onboard graphics card cannot support CAD sufficiently. Only a very few copies are designated as fit for use by AutoDesk. These models have (at Intel) a P in their name.
Yes, my customers do large drawings. There are already tens of thousands of objects. But AutoCAD handles it just fine. All that is needed is good support from the graphics card.

For the purpose of the test .... before I know what kind of tests I will start looking for possible solutions in the forums. The whole campaign must remain affordable for my customer. Otherwise a new notebook will be cheaper for him than paying for all my hours.

@jupa, Hello Jürgen
Thanks for the hint. AMD also has such settings. They just don't work. I see in some forums that the MFS does not manage to activate the high-performance graphics card either. There may be a driver problem with AMD.

Unfortunately, the customer did not seek advice when buying the notebook. He would have been advised against using a non-certified graphics card. With the nVidia Workstation graphics cards you have a lot less trouble than with the AMD graphics card installed here.

I would try to reinstall DirectX, then update the Intel HD driver and finally the AMD driver.
The display in the screenshot of _GRAPHICSCONFIG, which shows "DirectX 9" instead of "DirectX 11" leads me to believe that there is an installation problem or driver problem / conflict in one of the three.

Hello Hollaus

Thanks for your contribution.

I had taken the screenshot when I had just deactivated the HD Graphics in the system controls. Direct X falls back from version 11 to 9. Usually the state is version 11.

I'm on a different track now. As it stands, certain AMD graphics cards can only activate dual graphics through full screen applications. This, in turn, simply does not happen when using AutoCAD with multiple monitors.
