I just got a laptop and I was wondering how I enable the other Graphics Card so I can use it run games better.

 

My model is Acer Aspire V5-552PG-X809

 

Here are the two GPU's http://imgur.com/a/R082k

 

On the box of the laptop it says it actually has AMD Radeon HD 8750M

 

Any help would be great thanks.

Does it not switch automatically as load changes?

Like the only option I have in Catalyst is to either disable or enable crossfire, (I either can use APU and GPU or just APU) and then I can choose which programs use high performance. I thought by chossing which program uses high performance it would mean it uses the better graphics, but it still runs bad.

The link below has a decent Acer section, I have used it a bunch of times having two Acer's.  Maybe someone up there can get you fixed up.
