I run Lightworks on my Samsung QX410 laptop which has a hybrid Intel/Nvidia GPU (310m). I've been running LW in the default mode where the processor or system is supposed to know that it should switch to the higher performance GPU based on what the application is doing. I've been working with h.264 mpeg4 HD files (1920x1080 and 1280x720) which as everyone knows is really hard to work with. The usual small freezes while playing happen on this default setting. So I decided to browse to the real Lightworks executable (ntcardvt.exe) and right click on it and choose the higher performance Nvidia GPU. So far things are running much better with this change. Just thought I would let others know that there might be a performance boost lurking in your laptop that you didn't think you had available.
