I'm using a laptop with a Nvidia GTX1060 and an integrated video card and although in the game's options the 1060 is selected, the game doesn't use it. I had to manually go to NVIDIA Control Panel and select Anno1800.exe to edit OpenGL rendering GPU to GTX1060. I went from 20 FPS on low to over 200. I believe this may be the issue with some others experiencing low performence issues.

I am not very good at this, how do you select Anno 1800.exe in the NVIDIA Control Panel?
