Hi everyone, I hope you can help me with my problem.

 

The last couple of weeks I've been trying to repair my new Dell inspiron 15 5000 gaming  laptop. The problem is that the majority of the games weren't using my discrete graphic card to run. I've been using a lot of methods to repair that issue. However, I notice that in the device manager of my laptop the discrete graphic card was a RX560, which is weird because the spec of the laptop when I bought said that the discrete graphic card is a RX460.

 

One of the various methods I've tried to repair the first problem, the one with the switchable graphics, was to update all the drivers with Dell Updates, the app from Dell that automatically searches and install all drivers. When I did this, my graphic card finally appeared as RX460 but the same first problem was still there so I tried others methods to make it work but now it returns to the same RX560. I tried to clean uninstall and use the Dell Update app but it said that everything is up to date. I also tried to download the AMD video drivers from Dell (AMD Bristol Ridge Chipset and Baffin Graphics Driver) but when is installed the system recognise only a RX560.

 

Hope you can understand my problem, its been a crazy couple of days with this laptop and its driving me crazy

The specs of my laptops are: (and again I don't know why it say RX560 if is supposed to be a RX460)

Also, just so you know I've already tried EVERY posible solution for the switchable cards and none of them seems to work, I think the problem is the recognition of the RX460 so help me first with that please
