E5-552G switchable graphics not working

Hi All

So I have purchased an E5-552G notebook from Acer with an fx-8800p cpu and Radeon R7 + R7 M360 dual GPU.

I am bery disappointed.

I have tried both Acers drivers and also crimson 15.12/16.1.1 and switchable graphics refuses to function. Here are my settings:

I have tried:

Powerplay - High Performance

Switchable graphics AC - Maximise performance / Optimise Performance

And also assign all games to run on the High Performance GPU.

not even ONE game will run on the dedicated R7 M360 GPU.

However, if i enable dual graphics, crossfire is enable for all my games but this is pointlesss as the CPU will then throttle down to 1.3GHZ making gamplay impossible due to huge stuttering

I hope AMD can fix this issue with their switchable graphics as it seems to be a driver issue as my previous G505s also had the EXACT same issue

Kind regards

Enable the Switchable Graphics Application Monitor in Catalyst Control Center.

Try disabling Dual Graphics in Catalyst Control Center and then setting the application to High Performance mode and see which GPU the application is used in the Switchable Graphics Application Monitor.

Hi

I have already done this many times on both 15.7.1 (acers stock driver) and crimson. The DGPU will still stay at 300mhz and sticks to ULPS mode

Kind regards
