    I recently received a Razer Blade 14 w/NVidia 3070 GPU and I have been monitoring the GPU usage. Overall this machine is incredible! However, I almost always see the onboard AMD GPU running as hot and high as the NVidia. The concern is; does the onboard GPU add/work with the NVidia 3070? Or, is it running as well as (redundantly) as the 3070?

    If it's the latter, I would guess I should switch to the dedicated card. But, if it's the prior I shouldn't. Right?

    Like I said, this machine runs great, and I am not experiencing any performance issues. I just wanted to know if I should adjust the settings to prevent more heat.

    Thanks for your time in helping me out with this!

    While your AMD's GPU and NVidia are both running in the background, they work alternately. Therefore, when you use an App/Game with heavy graphics, the data that they'll use will be processed by your GPU. That said, both of them can remain are active on your laptop if you have a technology like Nvidia Optimus. Let me know if you have any other concerns.
