I have an HP ProBook with two cards, an Intel and an AMD Radeon HD 7850M. I want to switch to the AMD, because it is better that way. How can I do that?

  • Can you do it in AMD Catalyst? What model is the AMD card? – Rsya Studios Oct 4 '14 at 11:00
  • So have you tried doing it the Catalyst Center? – Rsya Studios Oct 4 '14 at 11:43
  • I want to use it for a game. I have tried enabling it for the game with Catalyst, but the game recognizes the Intel only. – MikhailTal Oct 4 '14 at 11:44
  • What game? If you have set the game to run with AMD then I don't see how the game can only recognises Intel. – Rsya Studios Oct 5 '14 at 5:07
  • WHy do you think I am asking here? I don't know what to do. – MikhailTal Oct 5 '14 at 9:31

It sounds like you want to tell all programs on your laptop to use the AMD graphics card. This isn't how it works. Instead, you "switch" to the AMD graphics card on a per-application basis.

To use the AMD graphics card with a certain application, right-click the application icon and choose the appropriate option on the context menu to use your AMD graphics card for that application. The program will run and its graphics processing needs will be handled by the AMD graphics card, but other programs will continue using Intel adapter.
