I'm still confused with the program. I have my main monitor connected to my discrete card, and my second connected to the IGPU. Is that the right way?

From what i understood it works in tandem with your single GPU and I-GPU

It's supposed to boost performance to the GPU like a hybrid Sli or Hybrid Crossfire it shuts down the main gpu and lets the Igpu do the work till time to play games then the main GPU takes over Virtu Universal MVP Review | Hardware Secrets

I understand that part, but am wondering will it work with both monitors hooked to the discrete card?

I haven't used it but it's my understanding that monitors can be attached to the GPU and the software handles whether it uses the iGPU or the GPU. I can never get my iGPU to work anyway.

I have no idea Doug, but through 6-7 boards I cant make it work. One thing may be is ASUS has forgot some of us still use DVI and they have only HDMI connectors on the board. I got a HDMI-VGA adapter but iGPU only works when I pull out the GPU card.

Igpu will only work with 1 GPU using two just kills it all together

I know Gary probably installed the drivers but i never got mine to work until i checked in bios to turn it on if using Lucid Logic i enabled this feature then used Lucid that is how i got mine to kick in

I installed Lucid Logic from the ASUS support site, after it was installed they wanted me to pay them money, which is BS, so I dumped it.

I have to enable dual graphics in the bios for it to work with a discrete card installed

They usually add and evalution version with mb's. Mine came with a licensed version, but not pro version.

Thanks for the link Tommy, nice to get a free upgrade

Here is a shot of my bios to enable multi graphics, not sure but I would think Asus has a similar setting

Dude, according to their web site with 1 GPU it does not matter which you have the monitor hooked up to. From what I've seen in just a short while, it helps in some apps and hurts in others. It cost me over 100 points in Heaven, but helped in Mark 3D 11. I guess the trick will be to figure out which apps/games to use it in. I haven't tried games with it yet. Here's the setting in the Sabertooth to enable igpu.
