Unable to use hardware acceleration for AutoCAD 2017

Question asked by archz2 on Nov 26, 2016

I have Lenovo G500 59-370339 laptop with , Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3230M CPU, 8GB RAM, 2GB AMD Radeon 8570 graphics card. I also have integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 on this machine. I am running Windows 8.1 - 64 bit on this laptop.

I recently installed AutoCAD 2017 on my machine and its service pack too. Unfortunately I cannot get it to use Radeon’s hardware acceleration.

I even added it in my crimson settings but still it made no difference.
