I just got a new Surface Book 3 and it has an integrated GTX 1660 Ti GPU to go along with the Core i7-1065G7 CPU.

I'm aware of the difficulties many people have when trying to get PD to access nVidia GPUs on laptops, (especially with MX series), but I didn't know if this system would have that problem or not.

The default setup shows the Intel logo on the About PD screen and has Intel Quick Sync available for producing.

Fortunately, all that needs to be done to switch to the GTX 1660 Ti is to set both GPUUtilityEx.exe and PDR.exe (both located in the C:\Program Files\CyberLink\PowerDirector18 folder) to use the High performance GPU from the Start > Settings > Display > Graphics Settings page:

Note that BOTH apps must be set to use the High Performance GPU, otherwise PD will use Quick Sync.

Now I can use the Turing NVENC when I'm away from my desktop
