I have an Asus Q550LF Notebook, i7 processor and Nvidia GT745M. Not sure if this is normal but in device manager both the Nvidia and intel integrated cards show up. It seems that when I play games like War Thunder, StarCraft it uses the Nvidia. I guess my question is - is this normal? with an added graphics card should both show up in device manager? Thanks

I presume it would be normal, since both devices are in fact present; one of 'em is just not active. It really doesn't make a difference if the iGPU shows up or not (it's just in a list of things, nothing more), as long as it keeps using the GT 745m (which it should).
