Journeyman III

Switchable Graphics not switching when required.

Hi there, I bought a new laptop and I am trying to configure switchable graphics. I'll select high performance but the game still renders on the APU making the game slow and unplayable. It also dose not give me an option to change the GPU/APU associated with it. I also tried an extremely intensive game (Escape From Tarkov) but would still automatically render on the APU. Could I get some help?
