Switchable Graphics is broken since the start of this year - unable to use dedicated GPU

I am using Windows 10 on an ASUS K550I laptop. My laptop has an AMD FX-9830P processor with integrated Radeon R7 Graphics. It also has a dedicated GPU, the Radeon RX460.
Previously I could switch between them using the "Switchable Graphics" option in the Radeon software. That option was removed in Adrenalin 2020 update so there is now no way to do so using the Radeon software.
Browsing the forums here and on the windows forums it seems like the way is to change the setting to "high performance" in Windows Graphics Settings. However, this still only presents me with the option of using the R7 card even though the RX460 is visible in Device Manager.

How can it be that both Windows and Andrenalin clearly recognise a graphics card but there is no way for me to use it? Is there a way to manually choose it?

Some have been saying that you need to change your switchable graphics power plan in Windows to "maximum performance" but that has not worked for me.
