Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Unreal 4 not using my second video card

Hi,

I have 2 video cards the 1080ti and the GTX780, when I'm using UE4 only the GTX780 is being used. I read that UE4 should pick up the better card automatically but I guess it doesn't. Could anyone help me?

I am on Win10, one monitor plugged in to GTX780, using latest UE4 version.

Thank you.

Product Version: UE 4.21

Hey there, are your nVidia settings set to Maximize 3D Performance? I'd also try hooking up the monitor to the 1080 to see if it changes the card being used by UE.

Hi, Thanks for your suggestions I will try the monitor thing tomorrow but regarding the "Maximize 3D Performance" is that in nVidia Control Panel? If so maybe there is a tutorial on what setting to use there? Thanks.

Yes, that's in the nVidia Control Panel and the first thing you wanna check - make sure the editor is not running :) alt text

Thanks, but it seems I don't have that option. alt text

Do things change when you hook up to the 1080 instead? If not then it might be a separate issue with the hardware/SLI itself, which unfortunately I can't help you with as I don't have that specific card combo.

Yeah no changes if it change to 1080ti unfortunately. Btw my cards are not SLI connected, is that an issue?

I'd suppose wiring them for SLI would be a prequisite for UE to be able to switch between them without conflicting with Windows. If you don't want to SLI have your Windows/BIOS run the 1080 as the primary.
