Hey i am trying to install amd beta driver for windows 8 running on my pc so i can dynamicaly switch between amd card and intel one in my windows 8 pc.

At the moment i have dynamic mode set in the bios which lets me choose between ati or intel cards.

I had that option in windows 7 but now in 8 it's gone.

I really want it back since i can only utilize that intel card in windows 8 and thats the chipset which means that i have to take the memory from RAM.

Please help me install the beta driver or the latest driver for windows 8.

TY.

I assume you are talking about a laptop, so you need the OEM provided drivers for Windows 8 for that laptop.
