Alienware m17x r4 Video card.

Jump to solution

I have a DELL Alienware M17x - R4 laptop 

 

I have an AMD RADEON 7970m graphics card installed, but I am finding that the M17x seems to be using the default Intel graphics card instead.

Can I easily set-up the Alienware M17x – R4 to select the AMD RADEON 7970m graphics card instead of the Intel one ?

How would I go about doing this? Is there any problems/issues with doing this?

 

Thank you.

Hi Recouda,

We need to manually add the application/games to AMD Catalyst control centre.

  • Click the Start button and select Programs
  • Click Catalyst Control Center
  • Click Power and select Switchable Graphics
  • Choose an application from the list or browse and select an application and assign the appropriate GPU.
