My Synapse 3 software does not have the option to turn off NVIDIA Optimus

Discussion in 'Razer Support' started by hitBistreBrownguide521, Sep 6, 2020.

  1. I saw on a review of my laptop that the synapse 3 software for the razer blade 2020 advanced edition that there is a "GPU mode" option that enables you to toggle on and off NVIDIA optimus with a restart. I would like to do this because I want to reduce my latency and improve my performance in certain titles that seem to prefer my Intel UHD graphics over my RTX 2080 super. I have updated my windows 10 to the latest feature update and removed and reinstalled my synapse and still do not get the option to toggle gpu mode on under my performance tab in synapse. Am I doing something wrong? Please help me!

    Hi, my 2020 15 advance with 4K also missed that option. But my other 2019 17 FHD with 240hz have it. Wonder anything do with the screen resolution that made that option disabled.

    Have you checked if you have your Intel and Nvidia graphics drivers updated to the latest version?

    As of this post the latest version available should be:
    Intel UHD Graphics
    Nvidia RTX 2080 SUPER Graphics (456.38)

    I have just checked and all the drivers and windows are up to date. The option just didn’t show up.
    Anyway, thanks for your reply. Much appreciated.

    No problem. Perhaps you might want to check the BIOS settings for GPU, it could be disabled in there.
