Hello My Friend bought a laptop like 1 year ago or so and he now realized he was using intel hd graphics 520 and not the R7 M340 its a notebook and it has 8gb ram and i5 6200u both gpus are enabled but in task manager when he is playing only gpu 0 works which is intel hd 520 and gpu1 dosent work its on 0 he disabled intel hd 520 and only amd working but it dosent load any game like cs go it says it has problems like ur gpu dosent support all features csm needed to run this game he ran fortnite but on rly low fps so is there way to fix it he has drivers leatest pls help...
 
R7 M340 Should run Fortnite @ 720p and low settings around 40 fps..... it's a pretty weak GPU and the HD 520 is even weaker with the same settings you would be lucky to hold mid 20's on fps. It's possible you have some kind of driver issue with the AMD card.

but my friend runs cs go on intel hd 520 with 140 to 200fps and fortnite all low and off except view distance he plays windowed fullscreen he gets around 80 to 150 fps on fortnite ig only when his laptop is on charger when its not he drops about 200-300mhz on cpu speed he has all drivers i came to his house reinstalled drivers reinstalled everything from amd nothing worked maybe the gpu dosent even work bcs its enabled as second gpu but dosent render 3d graphics so whats the problem with that?
 
I have a Acer with i5 6200u HD 520

Fortnight is only playable @768p Low settings and you do not stay above 30 fps, in crowded areas you drop down to single digits. A R7 M340 is slightly better but both are nearly unplayable in a crowded area.

CS:GO is a old DX9 title and easier to run @ 768p it's quite possible to stay around 80-120fps

Windows 10 will use both GPU's if there are both turned on in a multi GPU configuration provided the title supports it and you have that option on. By default if both are turned on with no priority windows will assign the IGPU.

yes u are right in crowded areas they drop to 1 digits but idk if intel hd 520 is better than a gt 710 overclocked to 1250mhz memory overclocked to 5100mhz bcs i have that gpu i have around 20 - 30 in crowded areas in cs go his r7 m340 dosent work some issues with drivers or something else i guess

u are right but when it comes to fortnite i have intel pentium dual core 2.8ghz and that gpu with 4gb ram i have around 100fps windowed fullscreen 2epic other low in crowded i get 20-30-40 sometimes 50-60fps he gets alot lower
i sometimes get 150fps if good overclock when it comes to cs go he has around 150-220fps i get 60 his is low everything i play on high everything plus msaax8 My question is will a gigabyte gt 730 overclocked to 1006Mhz by the manufacture be better than the intel hd 520 it has 1gb memory
 
A 730 GT is good for 768p low settings, Medium view. FPS is going to bounce from 20's-50's. The lowest GPU you want to go for reliable fps is a R7 260x/750 Ti or something equivalent, those have little to no issue at all with 768p and can handle low to medium 1080p settings.
