    Is there any way of forcing the SB2 to use the 1050/1060 card as the default GPU?

    Yes using the NVIDIA Control Panel (you'll need to update to the WHQL Drivers)...or in RS4 using the Graphics Properties...

    How do you access the NVIDEA control Panel? I tried typing NVIDEA and searching my program list but I've not found it.

    Thanks

    I went there and found it but it will not open.

    I see if it will open after a reboot.

    In RS4, which setting takes precedence, the Windows 10 Settings config or the Nvidia utility?

    Not sure :) I leave it on Auto...

    But I believe that they are using the same APIs at this point.
