  • Hello - i am trying to find the toggle within Enscape so i can specify which of my Nvidia GPU cards is assigned to Enscape. Ideally, i want to use at least the RTX 2070 super, and sometimes i want to use the GTX 1080 too (both together. I do not use SLI mode). Currently, Enscape is only using the GTX 1080, which is not what i want. Nvidia does not seem to recognise ENSCAPE as a program in the Nvidia control panel settings menu. I set the RTX 2070 to be my PhysX processor and i set it as the GPU for Sketchup. None of that works as it still uses the GTX 1080, not the 2070. The second monitor - the monitor that has enscape on it - is plugged into the RX2070.

    The other GPU renderers that i have used (Arion, Thea & Vray) all give you the option to manage & assign your GPU cards. It would be nice if Enscape could follow suit.

    Currently I am using the latest build of enscape and latest build of Sketchup 2021 & latest geforce drivers (as of Feb 9th 2022).

    Also, since we're now using Vulkan instead of OpenGL, it's not possible anymore to select which GPU should be used for Enscape accordingly and the selection itself is being done by us/Enscape.

    We'll look into a solution to help with automatically selecting the "better" GPU, based on performance/VRAM etc. (Or to allow selecting it manually through our Ui) - For now though, it will not be a high priority topic since only a very few of our users are making use of multiple GPU's in the first place. Still, feel free to please forward your Feedback to our product management team directly through the provided link/portal above.
