My laptop has two Graphics Processing Units (GPUs)

I have a laptop with HDMI out which means it has two GPUs in it. How do I determine which is being used for the laptop's screen?

Off-topic questions: Because of specific train simulators and flight simulators, I added a Windows as a dual boot just dedicated for use with only those. How can I have the more powerful GPU being used for the laptop monitor?

Not necessarily. A single GPU can power more than one output.
