Is there a way to disable Intel HD Graphics and use my AMD Radeon 6470M instead?
Because when I render 3D images in Maya, even if it's on "High Performance" in the Catalyst Control Center it still render as slow as using the Intel HD, same goes for playing games, on every game that I've played, switching it from "Not Assigned" to "High Performance" still results to a laggy and slow performance, given that it's set on the lowest setting.
So far, there's nothing on the BIOS to disable the Intel HD, the AMD 6470M isn't recognised when I disable Intel HD in device manager, i've also set it on Maximum Perfomance when plugged or in battery mode, updated both BIOS and Drivers.
I'm literally facing a dead end on this matter, spent hours looking for ways to make my system use my 6470M instead of the Intel HD Graphics. Thanks for helping.

Every Intel+Radeon on G series (g4,g5,g6...) have had this problem for years now.
There is no fix for it and never will, the dynamic switchable graphics will use the radeon only for certain games even if you set all of them as High Performance.
The only workaround I can think is to rollback your BIOS to the oldest one available and pray, if you are lucky it may be a version prior to the Dynamic Mode update (the old Fixed mode, that actually let you choose which card to use). Oldest BIOS for g5 and g6 are already in Dynamic Mode, but with a g4 it could work.

You’re having questions about your switchable graphics.
Here is a link to a document that will explain the switchable graphics on your computer.
Let me know how everything goes.

And frankly most of the time when I check what VC is recognized, 90% of the time it's recognizing the Intel HD Graphics, even though I've set up everything right in the Catalyst Center.
I want a solution for making my AMD card the primary and only VC recognizable, I am aware of everything else. Thank you.
