Title: GPU Device Select
Post by: WAS on November 30, 2021, 12:11:52 AM
Hey Matt, I'm not sure if this is possible, but it would be awesome if we could select the GPU device TG uses. Currently when it does the 3D preview it naturally uses my default 3D device, which is fine and dandy for most people I'm sure. But I have two. I'd love to be able to select the 4GB card for Terragen related stuff, reserving the 8GB card for TG. Currently TG just uses the main GPU, which is also what Blender uses. If I could select the other GPU I think I'd have much better results multi-tasking. If Blender is Baking with the GPU each 3D Preview pass literally locks up the PC.

This may also just be needed functionality for the eventual introduction of GPU Acceleration/Rendering, as people may have issues like on my old APU PC where everything tried using the CPU GPU and not the beast of GPU installed (also why I complained about 3d preview [not RTP] causing freezing all the time years ago).
