AMD Dual Graphics problem.

I recently got a new laptop with an A8-4500M and HD 7670M + Hd 7640G (Dual Graphics)
Most games i play aren't compatible with dual graphics like Minecraft and Skyrim.
When i have the dual graphics enabled it just run on the integrated gpu instead of both because dual graphics doesn't work in those games. And when i disable dual graphics it automaticly runs on the HD 7640g. How can i play games on only the HD 7670M? Because i heard people say that almost all games perform better with only the HD 7670 instead of the dual graphics.

Thanks in advance!

If you right click the game, do you have an option to "Run with 7670M"?

Can you in the bios or catalyst control center disable the part you don't want to use?

The following worked for me:

> Make your Windows 7 battery icon setting to "High Performance"
> While in AMD Graphics Properties (Catalyst Control Center) > Performance > Disable dual graphics.... this will make the dedicated your primary GPU assuming the preceding setting is also true.
> reboot your computer and try your games. They shall run on the 7670M

This works without issues for me. Currently running A10 + 7670M (GDDR3) & 7660G
