Do you know how to switch to your dedicated
AMD graphics card from Intel HD graphics card in your laptop or you don’t know if your games
are utilizing the dedicated graphics card? Well this time I show you how to switch to
your dedicated AMD graphics card for your games! I do tech videos every week so take a second
to subscribe for being updated with all the latest computer tech stuff and videos like
this. Now lets get started. First click on the battery
icon and select high performance. This will put your laptop to its full potential.Now right
click and select graphics properties. Go to power and select powerplay. Put the plugged
in option to maximize performance and click on apply. Then go to switchable graphics global
settings and like previous time click on the plugged in option and select maximize performance.
Make sure to apply the settings. This will put your graphics card to perform to its full
potential instead of thinking about the battery life when plugged in or charging. Now go to Switchable graphics application
settings. Here you can choose which applications or games you want to use the dedicated graphics
card for. For example I want my Fifa 15 to run with the dedicated graphics card. So I click
on add applications and go to the folder Fifa 15 is in. When the game is added then from
graphics settings choose high performance. So the game will utilize the dedicated graphics
card now instead of the built in Intel HD graphics. By this way you can add all the
games and programs to take advantage of the dedicated graphics card. One more important thing to keep in mind for
better gaming performance is that you should always run your games with the charger plugged
in. Otherwise your games will not be able to utilize the full performance of your laptop’s
processor and graphics card. Also running high graphical games in battery will reduce
your battery life. In my previous video I showed how you can optimize your laptop for
gaming in 4 easy steps. Click on that I icon to watch that video. If you have any questions then leave a comment
below and I will try to help you out. Also if you like the video then don’t forget

    I have doubts on this because when I utilize applications such as Tombraider, there are graphic settings within that application that tell you what card you're utilizing (Within the Game Application) and even when doing what you've said here it still stays in Intel. Case an point, try doing this on Tombraider and then getting the menu within tombraider to recognize the AMD card.
