Graphics Card doesn't switch

I have bought a new laptop acer aspire A515-41G-T4MX.

Its specs:

AMD Radeon RX-540

laptop acer aspire A515-41G-T4MX

Windows 10 64bit (It was with linux but I installed licensed windows 10 64bit)

Radeon Software Crimson Edition 17.11.1

(firstly I installed 17.10 from acer site (this driver didn't switch graphics too: arma3 warked with inegrated card but witcher3 worked with 540) and then updated to 17.11 (arma3 started to use rx-540))

NT156FHM-N41 1920x1080

Acer Aspire A515-41G Bios Version 1.03

QuadCore AMD A10-9620P

8 gb ram

Why do some games use inegrated video card instead of using descrete? For exampe, witcher 3 is working with RX-540, but stellaris and and dayz working with inegrated r5.

I even can't change it: try to switch to "high perfomance" and nothing is going on, it still uses r5. I tried to turn of r5, but game start to use cpu instead of rx-540.

Please, help me, am a little bit tired of amd, laptop with intel+nvidia works without any problems.
