  1. It used the dedicated GPU for me automatically and eliminated the usage of my APU's graphics.
  2. Best answer
    A gpu cannot be a cpu and a cpu cannot be a gpu. This is why they exist as separate entities. An apu just happens to have both of them on one component. When you add a graphics card, the gpu on the apu just gets disabled by default.
