I want to change my graphics from Intel HD to AMD Radeon R7 M270 on my laptop. It has both graphics integrated on the laptop.

Whenever I play games, Such as Rainbow 6 Siege beta or Battlefield 4, Intel graphics is used... But i want to use the AMD Graphics.

I have 8 GB of RAM,4 processors (2 hard and 2 soft)

Try downloading and running HWMonitor, it will show actual utilisation. I suspect it doesn't switch over until the gpu load goes up, i.e your actually playing the game and not at the game menu

Iam sure that it doesnt change,the GPU loads up directly when I start playing/even start the laptop,Both are ready to be used.

I think I have same issue. I want to confirm my laptop is using AMD graphics. When running HWMonitor and running a game, I could not see AMD anywhere on HWMonitor. but I noticed that Intel HD was running at 0%, so I'm still not sure what I am using.
