Hi Im using old Acer notebook with 4330 HD mobility and Intel integrated 4 series. I want to update from vendor drivers, because they are old and have bugs in OpenGL implementation. (updating is not a problem for me)

I see,that in new AMD drivers there is an option for switching GPU in Catalyst.

Will it work ?

My current problem is, that I can't switch between them, button in Catalyst for switching is o NOOP and does nothing. (It works flawlessly if I disable AMD driver in Device Manager - intel card is now operating - but I really think that amd card isnt disabled and eats up batery).Can the problem be when using external monitor ?

Plus is that it finally supports OpenGL 3.2 (AMD) and OpenGL 2.1 (Intel).

btw. 32bit system, cant use Leshcat drivers.

And I know I have to use vendor drivers, blah, balh, blah I get that. Just a question is it possible, has onyone succeeded ?
