Wondering if there is a way to render on my nvidia card without having to run my entire machine on it. Whenever I render on gpu, it causes the whole OS and all other apps to lag. Mission control, resizing windows, scrolling, and any other graphics related process outside of Blender become super choppy.
When I set my Mac to run on the default OS driver (using the nvidia Graphics Driver Manager in SysPrefs) GPU rendering is unavailable in Blender. If I set my Mac to run on nvidia, gpu rendering is available again, but results in the same lag issues.
Is there some kind of 3rd party gpu manager that would let me enable nvidia for Blender while continuing to run the rest of my Mac on its default gpu?
Thanks in advance!
