As the title says, my laptop came with an integrated intel HD graphics card, but also with an AMD Radeon one which isn't really good. I've seen many threads commenting that most laptops cna't switch them because they're integrated with the mobo, but mine has two and I'm not tech savvy enough to find out myself if the second one may be switched.

my specs:

Thank you in advance.
