I’m trying to work faster in Draw (Libreoffice 22.214.171.124 x64)
So I have been trying to engage the dedicated GPU, but sofar unsuccesfully.
I would be thankful for advice on how to do it properly.
Some info on my configuration and attempts:
I’m using a 2018 Huawei Matebook X Pro with i7-8550U CPU, 16GB RAM and Nvidia GeForce MX 150 GPU.
In Windows settings / Display / Graphics settings / Graphics performance preference I have both LibreOffice and LibreOffice Draw set to “High performance”.
On the Nvidia Control Panel, under “Manage 3d settings” / “Program Settings”, “PCMarc 10 (soffice.exe)” (which I think is LibreOffice) doesn’t have any other option than “Integrated graphics”. Isn’t that weird? In case of many other applications I can select the Nvidia GPU.
In LibreOffice under Tools / Options / LibreOffice / View / Graphics Output:
When Skia is enabled, the option “Use hardware acceleration” is grayed out, and Windows Task Manager shows the process “LibreOffice” as NOT using the Nvidia GPU.
If I disable Skia and select “Use hardware acceleration”, then Windows Task Manager shows the process “LibreOffice” as using the GPU and the Notebook generates a bit less heat, but the performance and speed in Draw is even worse than in case 1.
I read that this version of LibreOffice uses Skia and Vulcano, which make use of the dedicated GPU.
I also confirmed Vulcano compatibility of the GeForce MX 150 on the unofficial vulkan gpu database https://vulkan.gpuinfo.org.
I update Windows and LibreOffice regularly, and I also regularly run the native application of my Notebook PC to update all drivers.
What am I missing or doing wrong?
Tahnk you very much for reading .
