Hello Guys i need help with my eGPU
I newly installed windows 10 and when i want to play a game on internal monitor (notebook) then its working only on iGPU
not eGPU and i want to be able to play games on my eGPU (GTX 760)

what version of windows are you using?

You're kidding, right?

ThinkPad X230t, i7-3520M @ 2.9 GHz, Windows 7
EVGA GTX 1070 Hybrid, 2113 MHz @ 1043 mV

The headless ghost method still works on 2018 15" Macs. However, I get INSANE stuttering, even when locked at 60 fps. Is there a solution?

Soon I will add my build link or system & eGPU details to this my signature to give context to my posts

My Setup:
Acer Aspire [email protected]/4GB Ram/SSD/dgpu: nVidia Go 7600 256Mb ~ egpu: nVidia GTS 450 1024Mb (EXP GDC Express Card)
Windows 10 Pro 1809 x64 with Last Updates
Drivers from Windows Update 307.68 last one which work with dGPU - Geforce 7600go & eGPU - GTS 450 without annoying nvlddmkm.sys BSOD at last.
Graphics settings from Internal Desktop
Graphics settings from External Desktop

I don't have iGPU at system only dGPU. Disabling PCI-Bridge of Internal dGPU switch my screen to Standart Microsoft Adapter with Low Resolution and begin to see at Graphics Settings GTS 450 like High Graphics GPU, but switching don't work anyway.

When I use Dummy DVI or External monitor I can't get Duplicate screen also. So work only trick with Expand Workspace and DualMonitors soft with hotkey which grab active window to another display. Only windowed of course.

Nvidia Panel

Maybe some registry tweak possible forcing High Graphics eGPU and Windows Graphics Settings? any idea will appreciated.

P.S.>Very interesting remark. Games which use Unity 3D engine can work at internal notebook screen fullscreen with egpu  accelerated. Like Gwent and Hearthstone. I don't now how they do it but if we fugure it out it very help.

Sorry for bad english anyway.
