Intel HD 4000 image quality looks like crap compared to a discrete card. 

I've tried going HDMI out from my desktop card to the same monitor, and it looks much better than my Intel HD 4000 laptop. 

The laptop has a discrete AMD Radeon HD 7570M, but it seems it can only switch to it for certain applications/games.

Is it possible to use AMD all the time?  I have tried disabling the Intel 4000 device, but it still won't cut over to use AMD.

Thank you in advance.


I'm on Windows 8 x64

This question should be asked to Sony support. AMD has nothing to do with the workings of individual laptop a matter of fact, if you read the sticky "updating Mobility drivers', you will see that Sony, Toshiba and others have prevented the use of generic drivers...which is all AMD offers. Sony support forum (google) would be a good place to start. Sony support forum   Sony Insider forum
