    Having an issue with switchable graphics not using my high performance GPU

    jj1313

      Hey guys.

       

      I have a Radeon R5 330 and an intel HD 530 chipset. The PC has switchable graphics, but never seems to switch away from using the intel chipset whenever I try to run anything that needs a higher performance card (like a game)

       

      For example: I have been into the switchable graphics settings and set it so that Overwatch uses "high performance" graphics, but I still get <17 FPS in game at the lowest settings. This is true for most games, not just ones as intense as overwatch. Most games show me a really "jittery" output.

       

      The r5 card has no direct output ports so my HDMI is plugged into the MoBo and I think this is why it's defaulting to using the Intel chipset for everything?

       

      I've tried updating my drivers, and this mornign I did a clean wipe of all AMD drivers and software, and reinstalled new software from their site. In device manager, it now recognises my GPU as a "Radeon R5 m320"

       

      Can anyone help me figure this out? It's driving me insane.

      Thanks in advance.
