Enable hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling on Windows 11 systems
Windows 11 has various features that will guarantee you a better user experience than before. One of those features is hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling. This feature improves video and gaming performance using the PC’s GPU. This tutorial will address this issue and show you how to enable hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling on Windows 11 systems.
Hardware-accelerated GPU planning
So what is this feature for? Usually, all graphics intensive data that could hamper the performance of the computer is transferred to the GPU for rendering. The CPU is responsible for collecting data, assigning commands and prioritizing information to be returned by the GPU. However, with the hardware accelerated GPU scheduling feature, VRAM and GPU scheduling processor take over some of these tasks for the CPU and ensure that your system runs better.
This feature was introduced in the Windows 10 May 2020 Update and is disabled by default in Windows 11 systems. You must have an NVIDIA (GTX 1000 or later) or AMD (5600 series or later) graphics card with the latest drivers installed for this feature to work.
Enable hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling
Step 1: Click on the the Windows in the taskbar, then select the Settings application. (You can also open the app using hotkeys Win + I)
2nd step: Make sure you are in the System Settings in the left pane.
Step 3: In the right pane, click the Display option.
Step 4: Scroll down and into the Associated parameters header, select Graphic.
Step 5: Click on Change default graphics settings.
Step 6: Turn the toggle switch At under Hardware-accelerated GPU planning.
