GMod and all other source games have suddenly stopped using my GPU. They ran flawlessly a few days ago and now I can barely get 10 FPS. Drivers have been fully updated for a while and I have not installed a single addon, driver, or update in a couple of weeks. I have set them to run using my GPU (as well as any steam executables) instead of Auto-selecting in Nvidia control panel but this has not changed anything. I have removed my launch options as well. Any suggestions?
I can post my specs but I do not think they are necessary.
After changing some settings for my steam executables, I was able to get every source based game except for GMod to use my GPU. Still unsure of what the problem is.

It appears that disabling transparency for hl2.exe in Nvidia control panel fixed the problem but disabled high shadows. Adding -force_vendor_id 0x10DE -force_device_id 0x1180 to my launch options added high shadows back. It still shows Intel in mat_info but aside from that, everything seems to be working perfectly fine now.
