Short description of error
Blender does not recognize and use my Nvidia GPU. It only uses the integrated intel graphics card EDIT: for viewport open-gl rendering.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
On my system this can be observed in the Task Manager, by panning or orbiting around with the default scene.
The Task Manager shows 0% activity for the n-vidia gpu, for every blender version upwards form the working one mentioned above.
The following are the specs of my N-vidia GPU acquired from the working version if I were to report the bug via Help>Report a Bug link in Blender:
Graphics card: GeForce GTX 960M/PCIe/SSE2 NVIDIA Corporation 4.5.0 NVIDIA 441.66
I also made sure I have the latest n-vidia drivers.
