Lenovo Y50-70 external monitor dedicated VGA

I have a Lenovo Y50-70 that I would like to connect to an external monitor, and I am unsure whether the computer is able to use the dedicated Nvidia GPU in this case, or if it is limited to the integrated Intel GPU only (meaning low FPS).

 

Also, if I output the same (native) resolution (1920x1080) to a 24" screen from a 17" one, would graphics look considerably worse on a game with medium-high settings?

Any help is appreciated.
Cheers!

Hi there, Medvesa                   -

 

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

 

You'd have to look around in the Nvidia Control Panel for that one. But your browser should be using your dedicated GPU for x264 decoding if you have hardware acceleration enabled.


Update us how it goes.

Hi Shashi,

Thank you for your answer. My question is rather theoretical, I have not yet bought an external monitor, so I can't check that in the control panel.
I would primarily use this setup for gaming, and I would like to know if it would be a complete waste of money to buy a new monitor for that, or would it still use the dedicated card for gaming via HDMI, like normal.

You should see relatively the same frame rate, since its the same resolution. And the computer should automatically utilize the Nvidia GPU.
