    Is Rainbox Six Siege Using The AMD High Performance GPU?




      I play on a PC with

      8GB ram

      1.60 ghz

      AMD Radeon graphic card 2gb and one intel hd family 900mb, and after i updated my graphic card ( amd ) my game choosed Intel HD Family graphics as the main graphic card. How does i change it to the AMD one?

      Sorry if i forgot something.

                        How to Configure Laptop Switchable Graphics

                        Let me read it to you:

                        This document provides instructions on how to configure Switchable Graphics using Radeon settings and is categorized into the following sections:









                        What is Switchable Graphics Technology?


                        Switchable Graphics is a laptop technology that utilizes both the graphical processing capabilities of a discrete graphics adapter and the power efficiency of an integrated graphics adapter.  Switchable Graphics technology engages discrete graphics only when it is needed for 3D applications, and uses energy-efficient integrated graphics capabilities the rest of the time.




                        How to Enable Switchable Graphics?


                        To ensure full compatibility it is recommended to use the latest graphics driver for the integrated and high performance AMD graphics processor (GPU) provided by the laptop manufacturer. Switchable Graphics will not function if the power saving GPU does not have any display drivers installed.


                        If you would like to use the most recent driver offered by the graphics manufacturer to support the latest games and applications, follow the steps below in exact order.


                        1. Install the latest Intel graphics driver from the Intel or laptop manufacturer's website
                        2. Install the latest AMD graphics driver from the AMD or laptop manufacturer's website


                        Note! Before installing the display drivers, check windows device manager to see if the GPUs are listed under Display Adapters. The high performance GPU may appear under other devices as a generic video controller




                        Configuring Switchable Graphics



                        Choose whether to run applications on the high performance or power saving graphics processor, or to assign the GPU based on the current power source.


                        Right-click the Desktop and select AMD Radeon Settings from the menu.



                        Select Preferences.



                        Select Radeon Additional Settings.



                        Navigate to Power and select Switchable Graphics Application Settings to see a list of recent applications and which GPU they are using.



                        Select Switchable Graphics Global Settings to adjust your GPU settings for longer battery life or higher performance.


                        Note! The high performance GPU may not be available when the laptop is running on battery power.



                        Assigning Applications to GPUs


                        Assigning applications allows the user to specify which graphics processor is best suited for 3D applications. Selecting high performance will engage the discrete GPU and allow the system to increase graphical processing capabilities.


                        Note! The operating system may restrict certain applications from using the discrete GPU. For example, Internet browsers and video applications.


                        To add an application to use the high performance GPU:


                        Navigate to Radeon Settings > Preferences > Additional Settings > Power > Switchable Graphics Application Settings and the click Add Application.



                        Select the application you want to add and click Open.



                        Under Graphic Settings choose High Performance and click apply.




                        Switchable Graphics Application Monitor


                        The Switchable Graphics Application Monitor allows the user to check which GPU is assigned for each application used on the system.


                        Navigate to Radeon Settings > Preferences > Additional Settings > Power > Switchable Graphics Application Monitor and click Start Monitoring.



                        An application executed whilst monitoring is enabled will appear in the list below and will show which applications are running on the high performance AMD GPU.



                        New Features and Improvements

                        Radeon Settings

                        • Radeon Additional Settings has been retired and its previously supported controls for Switchable Graphics, Color Depth and Pixel Format have all been moved into Radeon Settings.

                            Configuring switchable graphics, when i go to preferences, there is no "radeon additional settings" what do i do?

                              • Re: Rainbow six siege graphic

                                Look under Radeon Settings > System > SWitchable Graphics. We need to update that document, the layout has changed slightly.


                                Default Settings, you should be using the AMD GPU, that's how the drivers are configured to use the high performance GPU by default, assuming you are connected to the power.


                                Ignore whatever a game tell you which GPU is being used as it will never be able to detect the AMD high performance GPU as the laptops display is connected to the Intel GPU. The AMD GPU is headless, which means it has no display connections. This is normal.
