Discovery Import

Upgrade to compatible GPU /Dual GPU

    • sanjay.balan


      The current GPU is not supported for Ansys Discovery as it's 2GB - Quadro M1000 make. This mobile workstation has another slot in which additional graphic cards can be added. If we add another 4GB compatible graphic card - Quadro M2000 will it launch Ansys Discovery and meet the hardware requirement as both the GPU will be available. How will Ansys Discovery identify to run on a new GPU in a dual scenario?

      1. Will adding another GPU cause any issue on Ansys

      2. Was there any scenario where this was done/Tested previously

      3. Can we make the new GPU the master
