I have a Precision m6800 laptop. It has the Intel HD 4600 and AMD FirePro 6100 cards in it. I understand that this laptop is more than likely a dynamic graphics switching laptop.

My questions are; Is there anyway to actually tell which graphics card is being used? I have it set to "High Performance" on some application and on others "Power Saving". Does "High Perfomance" mean its using the AMD card? If so, than why do programs and games still have the Intel card as the one being used?

Any, and all, help would be appreciated! Thank you!
