Hello, 

I am trying to get the Quadro P2200 to accelerate my programs in bootcamp but it seems to only use the Egpu when connected to only an external monitor. I have tried to set programs to prefer the egpu but as long as the internal display is on (extended mode) the system defaults back to the internal dgpu. I am on windows pro version 2004 and every attempt is hot plugged. It should be noted that I used to get a notification from Nvidia that says the p2200 may be unsupported and some windows functions might be limited but i havenèt gotten the notification in a while and it accelerates only the external display just fine. Any insight will be appreciated. Thanks!

@senpai_briguy, Keep trying different EXE files within the game/app folder until you find one that uses the the eGPU for loopback acceleration. For example, assigning the launcher to use the High-performance GPU doesn't mean the game itself will use the High-performance GPU.

@itsage, thanks, I did some more digging and Starcraft works through the internal display...sort of. I get a lot of distortion and the screen is locked to the top left corner but task manager says the egpu is being used. Have you seen this before?
