Doom Eternal won't use discrete GPU

Jump to solution

I have a laptop running Vega 8 and RX 560X, the game doesn't use RX 560X and can't seem to enforce it using the AMD Radeon Software as I can't see the option like older drivers. Power setting is set to 'High Performance'. Please help.

The switchable function has been removed from the graphics card to the 'Display' manager on your computer.

"The 'switchable' function has been removed from the graphics drivers for Win10 starting with the new 'Adrenalin 2020'. The option is now located under  'Display' of your computer...."Graphics'. "

When you force doom to use the rx560 it wont start anymore, just a short black screen and back to desktop.

(you force a app to use the rx560 by typing

graphic settings
add the exe file manually ans switch the config to best performance)

Alternatively you can try to plug a monitor and maybe it will start using RX 560.

Correct, the option to control which graphics card is used now managed by the OS, Windows. You should be able to select which GPU is used under Windows Display Properties > Graphics Settings.

The same problem here u_u, tried everything, but still a short black screen and back to destop, when minimize the game and try not to open, the game still executing, when you open the app to see what is happening it just back to destop again, i think there is a patch compatibility issue, and other thing is the gaming executing on ultra nightmare settings at very high resolution, i see the performance of my rx560x when it happens and just 100% all the time maybe cant run at that resolution so thats why back to desktop (i think), other thing is just compatibilty with vulkan and this graphic card in concrete, the wait is long for maybe a new patch for this issue u_u

I followed amdmatt‌'s advice and the game crashes to desktop after a second of black screen. Either AMD or Bethesda needs to release a fix.
