Disabling Integrated Graphics card

Hello everyone.  

I'm using my new ASUS R558U and I noticed something I never saw before.

My PC is running Win10 with both graphics cards (940MX and an IntelHD from the processor) at the same time.  

Even more, the alt-click menu gives me the option to choose which card do I want to run a certain program.  

The thing is, that I noted certain weird artifacts when using for example the Integrated and switching to an app running under the Nvidia one.

Is it advisable to disable the Intel one entirely? or I will suffer heat consecuences of using a bigger card, also how is that for battery life?

Those are my questions, thanks for your time.

Use Nvidia Control Panel and set prefer graphics processor to 'integrated graphics' in 'manage 3d settings'. Or just disable to dGPU in BIOS

Hi there ZM Fong.

I do know how to disable it, I just want to know if its recommended for battery life impact and heat to run with a more powerful GPU.

Thanks :D

I haven't noticed it to be too big of an impact on battery life and heat
