Question Quick question.


I recently bought a new toshiba Satellite M645 laptop. Recently, I discovered that it has an Nvidia graphics card installed in it. I was just wondering if this is true, and if it is, how can I use it.

I'm sorry if this is the wrong section, im new here XD

Default Re: Quick question.

According to the laptop's specs, it has:
Nvidia GeForce 330M graphics card w/ 1GB GDDR3 dedicated memory (Optimus switchable graphics)

It uses it automatically whenever you start doing anything graphics-intensive like gaming. Otherwise it uses the integrated graphics, which uses less power.
