How do I use the GPU on the CPU instead of the video card ?
So I might in between GPU's for a couple of months but I obliviously need to be able to use my PC in the mean time. My motherboard is a z390 Asus strix/9600k with a Display port in the back of it.
So do I install a Intel GPU driver first then take the GPU out. Then I plug the Display port cable to motherboard then power on the PC ? Do I have to go into bios though and do what there ? Also when I do get a new GPU how do I go back using just that ? Thanks
If your BIOS is in its pure default configuration, it will probably just auto-detect which GPU has a monitor plugged into it and just use that GPU. But, many boards have a BIOS setting that lets you configure which GPU should be used. If you modified that setting, then you may need to set it back to something that will use the iGPU.
In looking at the manual for the ROG Strix Z390-E (you don't say which Strix model you have), there's a specific option in the Advanced Tab for Graphics Configuration where the options allow you to set the Primary Display to "Auto", "CPU Graphics" or "PCIE Graphics". Either of the first two should enable the iGPU.
That same screen is where you would configure the iGPU to be used as part of a multi-monitor setup so both the iGPU and the PCIE graphics were enabled (not what you're trying to do).

yea as long as your BIOS doesn't have onboard graphics disabled you should be good. maybe clear CMOS if you don't overclock anyway if it doesn't work right away. you could uninstall the graphics driver before you shutdown just to do it, else do it after you reboot with the card removed
