Hi. I've bought a Lenovo G510 a few months ago and I didn't use it at all until now. The laptop has the following specs:
i7 - 4700MQ
8 GB RAM
AMD Radeon R7 M265
I think the specs are quite good ( never owned a laptop before ) assuming I paid ~650€ so here comes my problem: Assuming I've been using the AMD video card and not the integrated one ( Intel HD 4600 ) I can't play any game at all. Friends with lower-specs laptops are being able to play GTA V on medium-high settings and I can't even play League of Legends or CS:GO properly. I've tried to change the settings from LOW to HIGHEST in League, however the fps is the same: somewhere around 30-40 fps, even dropping to 20 sometimes. In CS:GO I've got somehow around 50-60 fps on high settings. I've tried NFS: Most Wanted 2012 but the game is stucked at 20 fps even if I use lowest setting or highest settings.
I am using Windows 8.1 Pro and it runs quite smoothly. Could the problem be the fact that the laptop is using the integrated video card instead of the dedicated one? ( I've been searching for about 5 hours now how to change the video card I'm using but the only answer I found is that it automatically switches between the 2 of them. I even changed the settings from the AMD GPU so the games are set to high performance but nothing happened.
The guy from the store where I bought the laptop told me to install win 8 or 8.1 because the win 7 drivers aren't working too well and so I did, but was it a mistake? Should I switch to win 7 or even 10?

Thanks for your time and hopefully someone knows a solution.

I had it on power-saving indeed. Changed it to performance and boosted my fps with ~20 in all games. Thx for answer.
