Hello,

I recently got a new laptop with an A8-4500M and HD 7670M + Hd 7640G (Dual Graphics)
Most games i play aren't compatible with dual graphics like Minecraft and Skyrim.
When i have the dual graphics enabled it just run on the integrated gpu instead of both because dual graphics doesn't work in those games. And when i disable dual graphics it automaticly runs on the HD 7640g. How can i play games on only the HD 7670M? Because i heard people say that almost all games perform better with only the HD 7670 instead of the dual graphics.

Thanks in advance!

Hey

The following worked for me:

> Make your Windows 7 battery icon setting to "High Performance"
> While in AMD Graphics Properties (Catalyst Control Center) > Performance > Disable dual graphics.... this will make the dedicated your primary GPU assuming the preceding setting is also true.
> reboot your computer and try your games. They shall run on the 7670M

This works without issues for me. Currently running A10 + 7670M (GDDR3) & 7660G
