Hey guys, I've read through all the resources on the cad.onshape.com/check page for knobs to turn.
I have a new Lenovo Flex 5 15.6" with a 4K monitor and Nvidia 940MX graphics card.
I've tried all of the options for forcing the Nvidia card, and the check page reports about 21M triangles processed with the Nvidia card, and about 75M with the Intel HD chip.
What gives?
Is the diagnostic being tricked by one or both?
Also, on the Flex 5, the BIOS gives me two choices WRT graphics: switchable, or built-in. No Discrete card option...

    I was trying out a new laptop in a shop and got the same weird results. The only way to know for sure is to disable “Optimus” in the BIOS.
