So, I got my Acer Aspire E15 E5-553G-F79R working with two graphics, primary Radeon R7 integrated graphics and linked Radeon R8 M455DX on Windows 10 Pro. The problem is that i supossed to get high frame rate while playing game (about 60 fps), while the reality is, i got very low FPS (between 20 - 30 fps while playing CSGO at lowest setting). Is it because my laptop working only with primary R7 graphics instead linked R8 Graphics?

IF its true, How do i switch the linked to primary? (i heard that you must plug the display cable to the other graphics card, but afraid to getting error with it)

It would be very helpful if you guys want to help me. Thank you very much.

The R8 M445DX is a dual graphics combination of the integrated Radeon R5 and a dedicated Radeon R7 M440 graphics card by the way,

Maybe its the drivers. Refer this link,
https://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Radeon-R8-M445DX-Dual-Graphics-Benchmarks-and-Specs.169457.0.html

It says you need driver profiles for each game that runs on DirectX 11. The problem is there arent many games that support this type of dual graphics, as it alternates the load on each gpu to render the game. So CSGO you would get around 80fps in 1024x768 resolution

Refer this too. http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-3387367/question.html

Thank you so much for the help dude. But, can you tell me more about setting the best profile for each games so that my games wont lag anymore (still, not getting 50 fps or above on my CSGO)? Thanks by the way! :)

Sorry for the late reply by the way :v, i've just reinstalling my amd chipset driver (Radeon Crimson Software edition),
https://ibb.co/mPviQF
it seems it doesnt contain any package called "AMD Control Center" , just like you said at the last reply(https://community.amd.com/servlet/JiveServlet/showImage/2-2772541-115620/dual.gif).
I had tried the profile gaming setting at Radeon Crimson Software and the result is same. My frame rate didnt ran above 50 fps. I set the lowest setting as possible on my CSGO and it didnt run so well.
