Troubleshooting: Dual GPU AMD/ATI Radeon Mobile

Post by rboerdijk » Wed, 17. Dec 14, 11:48

Symptoms

The game shows it it using the integrated (slow) GPU. How do I make sure it's using the discrete (fast) graphics card. Note that these adapters do not expose two different display adapters to Windows, at least not in DX9. Even though the laptop might use the high performance GPU for the game, the adapter name may still be displayed incorrectly in the configuration menu!
