Adrenalin 2020 Edition switchable graphics problem

I have an APU Laptop : 

  • A8-6410 with Radeon™ R5 Graphics and Radeon HD 8500M
  • Windows 10 x64bit 1909 - full updated

I successfully installed Adrenalin 2020 Edition with DDU but i realized that switchable graphics tab is not there anymore.. I found in the forum this

Opera Στιγμιότυπο_2019-12-12_183154_community.amd.com.png

I went to Windows Display Settings and I found the option but Windows on both Power Saving and 

High Performance shows the same GPU : Radeon™ R5 Graphics ....

So Windows Display Settings does NOT recognise HD 8500M !!!

I choose High Performance for a game and in Task Manager HD 8500M is 0% used... so its unusable.. Every game runs on Radeon™ R5 Graphics because AMD decide to delete this option from the software... 

This decision is unacceptable

Task Manager while playing a game with High performance

First means GPU Power Saving

Secand means GPU High Performance

Re: Adrenalin 2020 Edition switchable graphics problem

Yup, my problem too, i have to rely on windows game setting for choosing my graphic chip, as there is no option to select with one in the new radeon drivers... and i had it previuslly configures with many games using the radeon chip and others with the integrated intel one!

Re: Adrenalin 2020 Edition switchable graphics problem

I'm having the same problem (and GPU combination) as well. Just about to downgrade to 17.2.1 since that's the only version where it's free from Windows 10 1903's blackout, as described here: Issus with installing 19.5.2/19.6.1 on Windows 10(1903)‌, and to make OBS working again (since the driver version that fixed it broke OBS)

Re: Adrenalin 2020 Edition switchable graphics problem

I have the same problem , tell me if you found the solution there’s only one game thats utilizing the discrete graphics and its annoying it keeps switching back to power saving

Use Windows Control Panel> Power Options >Choose or Customize a power plan (High Performance power  plan for  example) >  Change plan settings >  Change  advanced power settings  > Switchable Graphics  > all  options set  to maximize.

Re: Adrenalin 2020 Edition switchable graphics problem

I've got a Intel HD 4600 internal graphics card and the AMD 8970M as dedicated card.

I'm having the same issue. Some games just launch with the 4600 instead of the AMD card and I can't change it no matter the windows settings.
And it hasn't been re-introduced until february even though I reported back MULTIPLE times that my laptop basically doesn't work without that setting.

What genius had the idea to remove that option and add tons of unnecessary stuff to Radeon Software nobody wanted?

If they don't re-introduce it, I'll just stay with the latest Adrenalin 2019 driver. Radeon Software is a lot lighter there anyway.

Re: Adrenalin 2020 Edition switchable graphics problem

They even have the support article for it still online...

https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/faq/dh-017 

How hard can it be to re-implement it? 1 hour if you know what you're doing?

For someone that's too poor to buy a new rig, this is just disappointing.
