Intel to AMD

HP Recommended
Notebook 17 15.6"
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello guys. So I have this laptop and it has an Intel Core-i5 7200u CPU (integrated with Intel HD 620 Graphics) along with an AMD Radeon R5 M330 chip, which apparently has 2GB of VRAM. I wanna test some games, which I think can work with my AMD here but seems they're all primarily run on this Intel CPU, where the integrated graphics are actually weak, which is boring. Also, I think the Intel sits above the AMD. Is there any way I can switch to using my AMD for my games? Thanks.

 

Image below shows onboard AMD chip:

@just_Terry

Thank you for posting back. 

 

I am writing you on behalf of Kumar0307 as he is away from work, and he suggested that I write to you concerning.

Computers with Fixed Mode switchable graphics allow switching between the power-saving GPU and the high-performance GPU based on power source (battery or AC Adapter) or manually using the Catalyst Control Center software. All applications use the selected GPU. If the Switchable Graphics screen allows selecting either the high-performance or power-saving GPU, your computer has Fixed Mode switchable graphics.

See the Changing Fixed Mode switchable graphics default settings section of this document for more information on accessing the Catalyst Control Center software.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.

Ok. I had tried this earlier on but I didn't exactly think it is the solution. As for my computer, indeed it is in fixed mode. I'll get back to Catalyst since I replaced it with Radeon Software. Anyway, thanks.
