Hi there! It's my first post here. I've got an Acer Aspire V3 notebook, with the Dual Graphics thing enabled. In the AMD Vision Engine Control Center, I get 2 options: Crossfire (APU +GPU) or No Crossfire (APU only). How do I get a mode with GPU only? I tried disabling the integrated GPU in Device Manager, but it had me stuck at 800x600 (with Aero off) till I re-enabled it. Specs in signature. Please help!

There might be a setting in the bios to select onboard or discreet graphics.

Same there. Crossfire or APU only.

Then go over to the Acer forums and ask there or email Acer directly, since unless someone on here owns that exact model then we're just guessing.

I'm curious... why do you want to use only the GPU?  Is there stuttering or some problem happening when using both?

I'm getting 200 fps in AssaultCube, but it moves like 5 fps.

NSDCars5 - We're going to skip your first warning, and jump right into a 7-Day Ban with you.  I can understand that you are frustrated with your issue, but purposely spamming the Moderators through the Offensive Language/Report to Moderator tool is simply not tolerated.
