Render Offload works for me. Yay!
Using the dGPU for offloading and pushing bits out the (dGPU-connected) HDMI/DP ports does not. I believe this is in line with the current documentation.
“The NVIDIA driver currently only supports the Source Output capability. It cannot be used as an output sink.”
Is this a feature which Nvidia intends to implement? If so, is there a tentative timeline?
Is this even technically possible, from a hardware perspective?
My laptop’s internal display is connected to the iGPU. All external ports (HDMI/DP) are connected to the dGPU.
- Due to heat/noise/battery I want to default rendering to the iGPU.
- I also want to be able to push graphics-demanding apps to the dGPU.
- And finally, I want to be able to have output on an external display device. External ports on my device is physically wired to the nvidia hardware.
