Optimus, which enables the machine to switch between using the card and intel onboard. more information here (Optimus Technology|NVIDIA )
It is not obvious if a laptop has this technology. If you inspect "Display adapters" in the Windows Device Manager and two adapters are shown (see attached image "OptimusNVIDIADisplayDevices"), then that would suggest that the laptop is running Optimus. The other method would be to open the NVIDIA Control Panel to see if it is possible to choose a preferred GPU (see attached image "OptimusDetectNVIDIAPanel"). This will only exist on a laptop running Optimus. It is important to note that a laptop could be Optimus capable, but have Optimus disabled in the BIOS.
For SOLIDWORKS® usage on a laptop with Optimus enabled, the video card driver should decide if SOLIDWORKS would benefit from the discrete NVIDIA GPU and leverage that GPU for all SolidWorks needs. The SOLIDWORKS application, however, does NOT control which display adapter is in use.
If you go into your NVIDIA control panel, you can go into the advanced settings and force it to use the NVIDIA processor when running particular applications (images below)
