Why is my iGPU the one that is seen as the GPU connected to my Display?

My laptop has two GPU's it has an RX560X and a Radeon Vega 8 GPU. For some reason, only the vega 8 is seen as my display GPU. pastedImage_1.png

This causes issues with my games because they only see the IGPU vRAM. 

If there is anything you can do to help me fix this, I would love that.

this is normal!
if you want to read out your dGPU RAM you need to use GPU-Z

you cant change this in your Laptop - ONLY if you disable your iGPU in Device-Manager
BUT if you, like me, have an Panel-OC (my 60Hz IPS without FreeSync is now 100Hz with FreeSync from 35-100) than your Panel-OC will be reset
also no FreeSync etc

PC: R7 2700X @PBO + RX 580 4G (1500MHz/2000MHz CL16) + 32G DDR4-3200CL14 + 144hz 1ms FS P + 75hz 1ms FS
Laptop: R5 2500U @30W + RX 560X (1400MHz/1500MHz) + 16G DDR4-2400CL16 + 120Hz 3ms FS

???
its impossible to run a game without vram
can you explain what game and what laptop is having this issue?

i assume switchable graphics is not running correct
or you have not plugged in your Laptop (so it will may force the iGPU)

The game is rather old, It misrecognized GPU VRAM

does this with my brothers RX 590 as well

I found a temporary workaround. I have to set the graphics on that application/game to the highest possible. and force It to use the proper V-RAM
