Windows 10: HP laptop switchable graphic card on Windows 10

    HP laptop switchable graphic card on Windows 10


    My HP laptop has two graphic cards, and both of them are listed at the device manager:

    Code:
    Intel (R) HD Graphics 4000
    Radeon (TM) HD 8670M
    HP supplied a Windows 8.1 driver which, in theory, would allow to switch the graphic cards (with the famous Catalyst). In practice, however, the Intel card was used most times, even for games.

    After upgrading to Windows 10, the Catalyst is gone, and HP does not supply a Windows 10 driver for my computer. My laptop is using the Intel Graphic all the time, so, when purchasing my laptop, I payed 100 additional euros for nothing!

    Is there a way to switch to the AMD card, even if I have to do it manually every time? If not, is there at least a way to use the AMD card all the time (instead of the Intel card)?

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Hi alleluia and welcome to Tenforums.

    You may be able to just disable the Intel HD Graphics 4000 in the BIOS of your system. Then the Radeon 8670M would be used all the time.
