DisplayPort GPU Passthrough?

I have an old Z87 setup + R9 290X lying around that I've been testing on and I have noticed that the GPU is being used to render Graphics Workload even though the Monitor isn't connected to it? The monitor is connected to the Motherboard's DisplayPort output, almost like the data is being passed from the GPU to the Motherboard's DisplayPort output. Is this a feature only on Windows 10? Is it only available for DisplayPort? Not sure if this works on any AMD setups? I don't have a HDMI Cable to plug into the Motherboard to test it with. Isn't this how Gaming Laptops generally operate?

Is there a way to change the way programs behave? I'm assuming somewhere in the AMD Control Panel?

not in amd control panel, it would have to be in the program settings, if they allow you to turn it off to begin with.
