Question IGPU over GPU

Jun 19, 2019
hi I have an asus laptop and for some reason its using its igpu (vega 8) as preferred over my gpu ( rx560x) how do i get it to change over to my GPU?
What laptop is it specifically?
Are you sure it's only using the iGPU? Most laptops dynamically switch between the integrated and dedicated, you have to configure the GPU settings in Radeon settings to choose what applications use what graphics card:

Switching to the dedicated AMD GPU
  • First, open Radeon Settings. One way to do that is right-clicking on an empty space on the desktop and choosing Radeon Settings from the menu.
  • Navigate to Preferences > Additional Settings > Power > Switchable Graphics Application Settings.
  • Select the game from the list of applications. If it is not in the list, click the Add Application button and select the *.exe-file of the game from the game's installation directory. This adds the game to the list and you'll be able to select it afterwards.
  • In the column Graphics Settings, assign the High Performance profile to the game.
