I recently upgraded to a new 8th generation Core i7 laptop with plenty of fast RAM, an SSD, and a dedicated GPU, but Logos isn't running as smoothly as I had hoped in some areas.

Logos has been running a lot nicer than my old laptop, to be sure: Searches are quick, resources load instantly, and indexing is a breeze. One thing I have noticed that is bothering me however is the choppiness of the scrolling. Some resources scroll smoothly, like the Logos interactive resources, but others, like the Bible, don't. I opened the task manager to see what happens when I scroll and I noticed that my dedicated GPU isn't even being used by Logos. I tried prioritizing the dedicated GPU while using Logos but that seems to have done nothing.

No (if you're talking about NVIDIA or ATI Radeon)

You can typically use your GPU's control panel software to configure a specific program to use the dedicated GPU vs. the i7 onboard graphics card.

George, Have you figured this out? I ask because I recently built a pc that is pretty powerful (i5 8400, M.2 drive and 16 gb of RAM) but I noticed the choppy scrolling you mentioned. I wondered if it was from my mouse that has "clicks" on the scrolling wheel (?). I pondered putting a GPU in to see if it helped......
