Problem with AMD Dual Graphics

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi, I have an AMD A8-7600 paired with a Sapphire Radeon R7 240 in Dual Graphics mode. The thing is that I noticed that the iGPU was not doing any of the working, leaving the dedicated GPU at 100% of load, while the iGPU load increased sometimes to a very low 10%. I wish I could use both GPUs at maximum performance, so does anyone have any solution? Thanks in advance.

So it looks like you have a compatible combo of APU and Dedicated GPU
Directly from the AMD website:

Q3: I just bought an AMD Radeon™ graphics card. How do I configure my PC to take advantage of AMD Radeon™ Dual Graphics?

A3: To take advantage of AMD Radeon™ Dual Graphics, you must use a compatible AMD A-Series APU to pair with your supported AMD Radeon™ graphics card. After installation of your graphics card, visit the AMD Graphics Drivers and Software Page, to download and install the latest AMD graphics drivers. After driver installation, the option to enable AMD Radeon™ Dual Graphics should become available in the AMD Catalyst Control Center or the Radeon Settings page in Radeon Software Crimson Edition.

Once installed, go into the “Performance” section of the AMD Catalyst Control Center or go to the “Gaming, Global Options” tab in Radeon Settings and toggle the AMD Crossfire™ technology option to “On” or “Enable Crossfire™”. This will allow the AMD A-Series APU graphics to work in tandem with the select AMD Radeon™ GPU installed for increased graphics performance.

So yeah, get the latest driver and enable it in CCC

Thanks for your reply, but I already have the latest drivers and I have enabled Dual Graphics in Radeon Settings, but it still does not work. I tried switching the primary Graphics Adapter but it does not work with the dedicated graphics as primary adapter.

UPDATE: I found in AMD's website that dual graphics only works on DirectX 10 and higher, that's the reason why I wasn't using both GPUs, the game I was playing uses DirectX 9.
