Steps to reproduce
I have a dual-GPU laptop with a common setup of a weak, low-power integrated Intel GPU, and a high-performance nVidia gaming-grade GPU. Visiting http://webglreport.com/?v=1 to see which GPU is in use (via unmasked renderer), Edge always uses the weak Intel GPU, including when connected to mains power, and after specifically configuring the nVidia control panel to use the high-performance nVidia GPU with Edge. Both Chrome and Firefox are able to use the nVidia GPU on the same system.
Edge should at least respect the setting in the nVidia control panel. Better yet, implement support for the powerPreference WebGL context attribute, so pages themselves can request either a “low-power” or “high-performance” GPU.
