Is your Visual Studio using hardware graphics acceleration in Visual Studio?

Recent versions Visual Studio can support hardware graphics acceleration. In normally, that is automatically enabled it in your computer if your computer can support GPU. However some situation doesn't enabled it automatically when has enabled Hyper-V in your computer.


Fig.1: Automatically option is enable, but Visual Studio using software rendering.

If your computer can use GPU and enabled Hyper-V, you should checked off "Automatically adjust visual experience based on client performance", and checked on "Use hardware graphics acceleration if available".


This issue is known issue in VSteam. I'm looking forward to fix it. :)
