I can't get the graphics to switch to use the AMD dedicated card when 3D applications are being run. This has been confirmed by disabling the AMD card in device manager and seeing no difference from when it's enabled. It's also been confirmed by using utilities like HWMonitor that show no activity on the AMD card when running demanding 3D apps. Both cards exist in device manager
What I've tried
Hardware & OS:
Dell Inspiron 14z (5423)
Intel HD 4000
AMD Radeon HD 7570M
Windows 10 Home 64-Bit
