Wrong GPU being identified by my computer? Fix needed urgently :(

Rig is in my sig!


Check all the 3 images above!!
Notice anything weird in them?

In the 3rd Virtue MVP pic you can clearly see that my discrete gpu (gtx 670) is being confused as the integrated gpu (IGP 4000) & vice versa by my PC.

You can also verify this by taking a look at the pics on this page-

Now in the 1st Unigine pic you can also clearly see that it's identifying the 3570K's gpu for the benchmark but we all know it's never possible to get 52 FPS with those settings in 1080p!

So, basically I'm confused as to what is going on....what should I do? How do I proceed?
I have no idea what's going on :(

Every windows update is installed. Bios is latest! Latest WHQL CPU & GPU driver is installed & all important fixes like vcredist, dotnetfx, latest DirectX, etc are all done...

    Do you have the PCI-e card set as the primary graphics adapter in your BIOS?

    Correct & my HDMI cable is plugged into the GTX 670 as well

    Well, those Unigine results look pretty normal for a GTX 670 - you're certainly not gonna get that out of integrated graphics. So there's probably no real issue.

    You could try disabling the integrated graphics in the BIOS if it really bugs you. I'd probably just ignore it since performance seems fine.

    How do i disable the integrated gpu?
    I have ASRock Z77 Extreme4 mobo, what option do i look for in the Bios?

    Hmmm... thought I remembered seeing an option for it in my BIOS (for their z68 extreme7)... but I just looked through the manual for your board and didn't see an option to just disable it.

    Sooooooooo forget I said anything about that. I really don't know why you'd worry about this though if your performance is fine.

    Strange :(

    But why would Virtu MVP identify my igp as the discrete gpu & vice versa?

    If you take a look at-

    You will see that the pic of the integrated GPU & the discrete GPU have been interchanged! Clearly my system is identifying one gpu, although rendering from the other one
    Very strange indeed... :(

    The pic should be like this-
    I have no idea what I'm doing wrong to get my system to identify the GPUs incorrectly.

    Sounds like it's just some goofy side effect of Virtu MVP. I don't know enough about that tech to know exactly why it's doing that, but as long as performance is fine you really don't have cause for concern - everything is working properly.

    I'm sending you a PM regarding couple questions related to Noctua NH- D14! Plz answer them. Thx
