Are you sure it is using the separate GPU on the laptop's board? It could be that "nvidia Optimus" hybrid setup where the display is wired to the GPU that's integrated into the CPU, and the separate gpu from nvidia is mostly powered off and only used for games but not for a web browser. Today nearly everything is this kind of setup. I don't know if this was already as popular at the time of Sandy Bridge CPUs.
