      The Issue I am having is that the Switchable Graphics Don't seem to work  According to the switchable Graphics Application Monitor all programs even if their set to high Performance only use Power saving which tells me the discrete card is never being Utilized.

      (Have tested with Dual Graphics and without)

      One Is there a way to fix this ...

      (Yes I have gone into the Windows Power settings and changed it all to Maximize Performance, set Applications to High Performance in CCC or Additional settings Panel).

      Two if their isn't is it planned in future driver updates?

       

      (Last Info the APU is a Carizzo Chip (A10-8700P or modded variant but otherwise it still falls into the grouping of those APU's) set I am aware of the bug with current drivers until fixed WHQL version is released)
