I have  recently bought Acer Nitro 5 AN515-42. The specs on the PC:

AMD Ryzen 5 2500U with Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx, 2000 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)

Radeon RX 560x

8gb memory

256 gb ssd

Software: Radeon Crimson Relive 17.7

Even with these specs i get poor performance. First I thought my PC could be bad, but then I noticed something.

I played with the Radeon Vega 8 integrated graphics, and got around 20 fps on 1080p, fortnite. Then I forgot that

I had to go to Switchable Graphics and add fortnite on high performance I did that and I still get same results on

the game. I go into task manager to check, how much gpu I was using, and My radeon Vega 8 was around 40%

and my RX 560x was on about 18-20%. My question is how do I make it so get better performance. Because I

know that it's not using full gpu capability. I've tried the following:

Going into nitro sense and enabling cool boost.

Going into nitro sense and check high performance on AC and battery.

Add fortnite on switchable graphics and enabling high performance in radeon settings

Connecting AC adapter when playing

I disabled Vega 8 graphics in device manager and still get same performance on rx 560x

please help me with a solution or give contact number so I can get help.

If you need any additional info please reply and I'll do my best to get to you.

Appreciated anything you can do.
