Discrete Graphics Card: invalid vendor type

Why are you seeing it?

  1. If your system has a discrete graphics card (GPU) and you are running an OpenVINO™ Toolkit application using GPU plugin, the application may attempt and fail to use discrete graphics if Intel® Processor Graphics (GPU) is disabled at BIOS level
  2. If your system does not meet the system requirements as stated here for Intel® Iris® Pro & Intel® HD Graphics, and a discrete graphics card (GPU) is installed.

How to fix it:

  • Verify your processor is a 6th to 10th generation Intel® Core™ processor with Intel® Iris® Pro graphics and Intel® HD Graphics.
  • Check Internal/Integrated Graphics is enabled in the BIOS. In BIOS menu such setting could be under Chipset > Internal Graphics > [Enabled] or similar.
  • Follow required steps to enable the toolkit components to use the processor graphics (iGPU).

Following these steps should allow you to run the OpenVINO™ Toolkit sample and demo applications using GPU plugin.
