@Vishnu05 Welcome to HP Community!


I understand that you would like to know which graphic card is being used while gaming.



1 - Click Start and then Control Panel. Select Classic View from the left side of the window.

2 - Double-click NVIDIA Control Panel.

3 - Click View and next Display GPU Activity Icon in Notification Area.

4 - Click the new icon in the notification area. A pop-up will show applications using the NVIDIA graphics. When the NVIDIA graphics is not used, it will show None.


In the Nvidia Control Panel you can specify which GPU to use on a per EXE basis, or which once is on by default. If you are getting poor performance add your game's EXE to the list under Program Settings or temporary change the value in Global Settings.
