Can't change default GPU to actual graphics card. No "gpu workload" option in settings

I just finished building my pc and installing the necessary drivers. The AMD drivers I downloaded (Adrenalin Edition) is picking up 2 gpus. The integrated graphics, and my RX Radeon 6800 (discrete). I have no idea what "discrete" means, unless it means that the graphics card isn't being used at all, then I know exactly what it means. Whenever I launch a game the task manager says that the RX 6800 isn't being used no matter what game I launch, it only uses the integrated graphics all the time.

The support page I found seemed like the obvious solution, but in my settings there is no "gpu workload" option for me to change. And the note on step 3 says "In systems with more than one AMD Radeon™ GPU installed, GPU Workload setting will apply to all AMD Radeon™ GPUs." which clearly isn't happening since only one gpus is actually being used to run my games. The thing that baffles me is that the graphics card IS DETECTED but I have no way to actually use it.

If there's some step I'm missing please let me know

Edit: So I went into the windows graphics settings to see if I can select the 6800 for specific games. And on both my options (Power saving and high performance) they're both using the integrated graphics. No option for 6800 there either.

Is there a monitor connected to the 6800?

There is no gpu workload option for the RX6000 series, i believe it auto switches for workstation applications/programs?

Ryzen 5 5600x, B550 aorus pro ac, Hyper 212 black, 2 x 16gb F4-3600c16dgtzn kit, Aorus gen4 1tb, Nitro+RX6900XT, RM850, Win.10 Pro., LC27G55T..

I did not have it plugged into the monitor, didn't even realize that was possible. Thanks for the help!
