    After mistakenly updating the Intel GPU Driver, I noticed when playing or rendering a video, neither graphics adapter was utilized. The CPU was running 100%.

    As I had done a bunch of updates yesterday (wrong thing to do), I had to tackle (downgrade) each update one-at-a-time.

    The solution was to downgrade the Intel UHD Graphics 630 driver from version 27.20.100.8587 to version 27.20.100.8476.

    I believe this has been fixed in the latest Premiere Pro CC update. My render times for H.264 (MP4) videos has been cut in half. It is using BOTH the nVidia GPU and the embedded Intel GPU for rendering.

    Here's a new wrinkle in an old issue.

    I have a new Dell XPS 7950 laptop. It has an Intel UHD Graphics 630 and an nVidia GeForce GTX 1650 adapters. I just ran a test render of a 34 minute video (H.264). I monitored the process and noticed that BOTH graphics adapters were put to work as well as the CPU.

    I also have a one year old Dell XPS 8930 desktop. It has an Intel UHD Graphics 630 and an nVidia Geforce GTX 1080 adapters. I ran the same video render on this desktop. It takes 3 times longer! The Intel GPU runs about 70%, the nVidia GPU runs about 5%, the CPU runs about 15%. A few weeks ago, it used to be twice as fast and utilize the CPU much more. However, the nVidia adapter is not used at all. Project settings in Premiere are the same.

    Since when is the integrated GPU faster than, say a GTX 1080? Are you saying Intel's QuickSync on a UHD Graphics 630 is faster than an nVidia GTX 1080 GPU? If so, then why doesn't Adobe just say so? I have had an open case on this for over 13 months!

    Using Windows 10 - all patches applied. Premiere Pro CC v13.0. Dell XPS 8930 with nVidia GTX 1080. Premiere uses the embedded Intel Graphic processor instead of the GTX 1080. Cannot disable the embedded graphics in the BIOS. Disabling it in Device Manager causes the CPU to do all the work.

    Even the latest version, 13.1, hasn't fixed the problem.

    Check out , "[Hardware Forum] Premiere Pro using Integrated and not Dedicated Graphics Card".

    I have been working with Adobe on this. They have confirmed the problem that Premiere Pro CC uses GPU 0 before GPU 1. They have submitted a request to engineering to offer a choice of which GPU to use in "Project Settings".

    This problem was reported and acknowledged by Adobe in November of this year. It is not just laptops. Premiere Pro CC 2019 selects GPU 0 which may be the embedded (motherboard) GPU instead of GPU 1 (the add-on GPU (nVidia).
