PC uses CPU instead of GPU
I'm from the Netherlands and I bought a MSi GX70 laptop with a AMD A10 proccessor, 8 GB ram and a 17,3 inch FHD screen. Now it all sounds pretty good but I have one issue while I'm playing Skyrim. Because when I launch the game I can see some kind of screen telling me what GPU I'm using and what my settings are etc. Now I play on Ultra and it seems to work pretty OK but according to Skyrim my GPU is a AMD Radeon 6850G instead of the AMD Radeon HD 8970M I am supposed to play with. Does any one of you know what's wrong? I installed the drivers that I received on a CD-ROM with my laptop but thats everything I can think off to do... Maybe I need some kind of new driver or something but I have no clue, Im a real PC nooby and this is my first gaming PC in like... forever... So if anyone could help me out that would be great.
So I called the shop where I bought it, they say the 8650G is the one integraded in to my AMD A10 quadcore chip, and the 8970 is the standalone GPU. So for some reason Skyrim only detects the 8650G and if I turn that off in to my device manager and launch Skyrim again, it detects no GPU at all, I thought that if I would turn the 8650 off, it would automaticly switch to my 8970 but it doesn't... I don't know if this is just Skyrim not supporting the 8970M, or I dont have the right driver or that something hardware technical is not functioning... Any way I wish someone could help me out.
