Does inserting a graphic card AUTOMATICALLY disables GPU core handling?

    As you know Intel core i* CPUs contains a full graphic GPU which allows driving a monitor without additional graphic card hardware.

    But what if I explicitely want to use an additional graphic card (e.g. because it is faster or can handle higher resolutions like 4K).

    Does core i* CPU resp. the motherboard AUTOMATICALLY detect the new graphic card and disables its own built-in default graphic GPU?

    Or do I have to manually enable resp switch to graphic card somehwere in BIOS or in Windows 7?
