That laptop is not a speed demon to start with. Then add the switchable, Enduro disaster on top of that. You need to read this>
Where it says this>
The 8600M series also supports automatic graphics switching between the integrated GPU and discrete GPU. Called Enduro, the technology supersedes AMD's Dynamic Switchable Graphics and is similar to Nvidia's Optimus. Furthermore, the 8670M can directly support up to 2 connected monitors using Eyefinity Technology if Enduro is disabled.
Other features of the 8600M series include ZeroCore for reducing power consumption when the display is turned off and Power Gating to power down areas of the chip that are not used. PowerTune allows automatic overclocking and underclocking of the graphics card as long as the GPU is within its TDP limit. For example, the chip may be underclocked when running FurMark and OCCT, but will overclock in certain games like Lost Planet, Crysis or Resident Evil 5. The performance of the Radeon HD 8670M should be in range of the old Radeon HD 6750M. Current and demanding games like Far Cry 3 should run fluently only in low resolutions and detail settings.
Most people disable the switchable function and the low power state. There are some posts in the FAQ section on this.
