Hello guys,

I have notebook Lenovo z50-75 with GPU AMD Radeon R7 + dedicated AMD Radeon R7 M260DX (with possible crossfire)

But to the point, i started playing World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade again and im having only 30-60 fps on Medium settings, this game is from 2008 so im suspicious that im using only my integrated graphics card.

I set everything to MAX POWER in settings, in CCC, everywhere, so i SHOULD be using my dedicated card, but i think im not. So i want to ask is there any way that i can check if im using dedicated card while playing WOW? OR do you have any solutions for me? Im actually desperate, i was googling for x hours and nothing seems to work.

THANK YOU

Unless you have a different spec then you dont have an r7 but an r5 that combined is called an r6: https://www.notebookcheck.net/Lenovo-IdeaPad-Z50-75-Not...

Either way it is a bottom end graphics chip so medium at 30-60 is right in the ballpark of what to expect, even if it is a 2008 game.

Any AMD "gaming" laptop is deigned to play on low or medium settings.
That is also way it is only a 720p screen and not 1080p so you can at least get usable frame rates on low/medium
