I've bought a new laptop with discrete graphics (a Radeon mobility card), but I know there's also integrated graphics somewhere inside...

The laptop came with no OS installed, so I had to install the OS and drivers by myself.

Is there a way to know if it uses the discrete graphics or the integrated graphics?

I'm using Win7 64bit. Does the laptop brand\model matter? I would like a way to find out what graphics solution is being used on any laptop...


Start --> Run --> dxdiag.

The display tab should tell you your current graphics driver. Also, there's usually a BIOS option to set either integrated or discrete graphics or sometimes a hybrid/let the OS choose option.
