    Minecraft Not Using Dedicated Radeon GPU

    jadharvey

      Hello, I just wanna ask what's going on in minecraft, of all the games I play in this pc, only minecraft is not affected with "switchable graphics"

       

      I set the "minecraftlauncher.exe" and "javaw.exe" into high performance in Switchable Graphics

      it's the only apps running in "Current Applications" as well in "recent application" when I close the game.

      The AMD Radeon Settings says, it's running using Radeon 500 Series (RX 550 4GB GDDR5)

      but when I check the shaders option in optifine, it says its using AMD R7 Graphics which is my integrated..

      I checked the FPS it's stuttering and its true that it's using AMD R7 Graphics instead of my dedicated GPU...

       

      What should I do? I already put it in high performance through switchable graphics and also created its own profile..

      I don't have problem running CSGO, DOTA 2, LoL, Paladins and Overwatch but damn why minecraft is the only one running on R7 Graphics?

      Even though I change it into High Performance on Switchable Graphics.

       

      System Specs:

      OS: Windows 10 (64 bit)

      Processor: AMD FX-9830P RADEON R7, 12 COMPUTE CORES 4C+8G 3.00GHz

      RAM: 12GB DDR4 2400MHz

      GPU: RADEON RX 550 4GB GDDR5
