Cannot Select GPU in Options

Postby ConThePilot » Tue Jan 29, 2019 6:04 am

Hi all,
I am having an issue after reinstalling Windows and P3D where I cannot select my GPU in the options. Every time I select it, when I save, it reverts back to my CPU. This is causing massive performance issues with only 5 fps! I am running an Intel i7 7700 and a GTX 1070. It would be great to find out how to fix this. Thank you!

A couple screenshots (or a video) of the problem?

Maybe swich off onboard GPU in BIOS may help, so you make your graphic card the only device
