I bought a new laptop and it has Intel (R) HD 520 graphics and AMD Radeon R7 M30 graphics, and I am pretty sure it is using the intel graphics card as for 3 reasons:
1. I watched videos of this graphics card on different games and they looks GOOD whereas when I go on them games that were in the videos I lag a lot!
2. When I play minecraft it says when you press F3 it says in the top right corner
' Graphics display:
1902 x 1202
Intel (R) HD 520 graphics'
3. I have read forums and stuff and they say if you havent changed which graphics card your pc/laptop is using then it will be the Intel Graphics

I have watched videos on how to change it and they say right click on your desktop and click graphics properties and then they say click on switchable graphics or something like that but when I right click the desktop it only says 'AMD Radeon Settings' and when i click that it doesnt give me an option of changing which graphics card my laptop is using or anything else like that?

Please help, I really miss gaming WITH fps! Thank you so much!
