Thank you Thracks!
I think I may have mentioned something similar earlier, but the reason I think it is related to profiles is because of one example in that Halo 1 for PC, an old DX9 game, opens with my 7970M when set to high performance. Invisible War came out the same year and is also DX9, while Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow is a bit newer and DX9 based, and both fail to open with the dedicated GPU. It may be Unreal Engine 1.0/2.0 related, as both original and sequel games in the Deus Ex and Splinter Cell series run on Unreal Engine, while Halo runs on Bungie's proprietary engine. What I mean is, maybe AMD's Enduro drivers/profiles weren't prepared to properly open older Unreal Engine games, or at least specific Unreal Engine games.
Let me load up the original Half-Life and I will let you know if it opens with the 7970M. If it does, this must be profile related.
Edit: It does. I changed the Half-Life exe to High Performance, ran the game, alt-tabbed to use CCCs Enduro monitoring and bam, the exe is running in High Performance, on the 7970M.Edited by TrantaLocked - 10/23/13 at 9:10pm
