A Way Past NVIDIA Optimus

Recommended Posts

Okay everyone, I just figured out something today, and I'm not 100% sure it works, I'll need other people to confirm if anyone wants to, and it is reversable. As a lot of us tech-savvy simmers know, NVIDIA's Optimus program has gotten in the way of our performance. For those that don't know, Optimus was developed by NVIDIA to save battery power over performance when a dedicated GPU (The NVIDIA Card) was not needed. However, a lot of us have found it heavily decreases performance by forcing FS into using the Intel HD (Integrated) Graphics, or whatever might be your integrated processor. But I think I have found a way past Optimus, for those of us who use NVIDIA Inspector, and it takes literally just a few moments to check and change.

Steps
1. Open Inspector
2. Set the FS2004 profile and scroll to the 'Other' Section
3. Find the setting that says 'Enable the Application for Optimus'
4. Set that to SHIM_RENDERING_MODE_OVERRIDE_BIT

Enjoy, my performance went from 15 - 25 FPS at high level sceneries, 100% AI and high-quality addons to over 80+! Report if it works for you
