Title: Lumion Error "Not the same! 1024"
Post by: Vas on May 08, 2012, 05:53:49 pm
Hi guys,

I bought a new laptop with GTX 675 graphics and when I try to run Lumion the message "Not the same! 1024" comes up and lumion crashes.
Do you guys know what the problem is?

Thanks

Vas

I'm guessing that your laptop uses power-saving Optimus technology, ie, 2 graphics cards: a fast Nvidia card for 3D applications and a slower Intel HD card for word processing, web browsing etc.

The Nvidia control panel allows you to specify which applications should use the fast Nvidia card. Here's how to do that:

Morten,

Thanks a lot, all sorted now.. the on board graphics were on by default.

I am impressed.., it runs approx 8-10 fps slower then my desktop graphics card GTX 580 which is a monster.

Wow, which laptop is this? (Ferry mentioned that he wanted to consider making a stand-alone Lumion benchmarking utility, so that we can rate all hardware configurations)

Hehe looks awesome - with specs like that it's more like a desktop PC disguised as a laptop!
