Disabling gtx1070 to run on integrated graphics to save battery

Go to solution Solved by Waqas409,

if its an G-sync panel than you can not disable discrete GPU.
It will always run on Nvidia GPU

recently i bought a HP omen 15

 

amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/HP-15-inch-i7-8750H-Processor-15-dc0045nr/dp/B07H9XPF1S/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8

 

GPU: gtx 1070 Max-Q
CPU: i7-8750H
Battery: 70Wh
Display: 1920x1080 G sync 144hz

i have been able to run it for 4  to 4 and half hrs on normal use but i need more time than that.
Is it possible to disable the GPU and run the system on integrated graphics while i am studying and switch to the GPU while gaming to save battery power?

You should already be using the Intel IGPU, isn't that an Optimus laptop?

Omen 15 dc with GSYNC (usually 1060 or 1070MQ models) don't have Optimus

It seems there is no optimus support for laptops with g sync panel.

That could mean the GTX 1070 is always on for that, and the intel iGPU disabled, or present but not capable of offering display output, so you could run applications through the iGPU but the NVIDIA would be always on, sucking battery

Does it show on the devices manager? If you try to disable the NVIDIA card through right clicking it, and the display still shows output, that could mean the iGPU can be used.... But I honestly don't recommend doing that, you could get an unusable system

edit: also you could try searching in the bios if there is an option to have the iGPU as primary display, but without G-SYNC support and trying to use optimus
