    have you done a search for external gpu here in the forums and especially those two threads? I don't have an external GPU but I thought there were people using one.

    I agree that the switching probably needs to be controlled by the BIOS. But I'm aware only of one graphics option having DYNAMIC, STATIC and AUTO switch for GPU.
    One of these might work, so if you already have the GPU should be worth trying?
