Dual Graphics Card in laptop

Currently some notebooks have two graphics cards, generally one weaker intel graphics card and a powerful nVidia or AMD graphics card. The notebooks switches to the card depending on the application. The intel card is far weaker, but also uses less power. The nVidia or AMD card is the opposite.

The graphics card on default on these notebooks is the weaker intel graphics card. This is also the graphics card that ED will then use.

But this will cause ED to run significantly slower! Especially if 3D models are used.

The solution for this problem is to go to the driver options ( generally right click on desktop -> nvidia or amd control panel ) and then, under manage 3d settings create a profile for ED which specifies which card to use ( the powerful one ).

Then ED will run smooth again!
