AMD r7 M260DX won't run my games on high performance GPU

Discussion created by ossie97 on Jul 11, 2015

Hello fellow AMD users,

I am having some trouble in getting my GPU to run in high performance mode mode with the games that i wanna play (league of legends, Final fantasy XIII steam edition, C9)

When i set the gpu for the application in CCC, no matter what choice i make it will run with the Power Saving GPU (as i can check by tracking the GPU in CCC)

the weird thing is, dat 3D mark 11 basic edition is the only exception to actually run in High Performance mode. ( see pictures )

 

My setup is the Lenovo z50-75 laptop with the amd fx-7500 cpu, R7(tm) integrated graphics and a R7 M260DX Dedicated graphics card

I find this really weird, because i purchased the notebook so i could run not really graphic-heavy games on mid-low settings and get a decent frame rate.

Thanks in advance!
