If you got both, it would often be an option to choose either one, not both at the same time.

Although unsure if there is an actual method to use the IGPU too.

 

Often the dedicated GPU should be better, and run capture software as normal or on another device (phone for example as recording, if possible).

Probably disabled by Dell.out of the factory then. Could you find it in Device Manager?

 

They do this because some video functions require the dGPU to be directly wired to the display and display outputs. In this case disabling the iGPU is common practice for laptops.

 

Maybe there is a option in BIOS or even a switch to control iGPU's on and off, but this is a rare case.

I can not fine the iGPU in device manager, so I try to install new driver but it keep pop-uo that may laptop is not compatible, I haven't check the BIOS yet, thanks for the advice!

Because my đeicated GPU not that powerful so I want to use the iGpu for stream encode, but maybe not in this case, thanks btw
