Hello, I have bought few days ago new ultrabook - Samsung 730u3e-s01pl.

I have updated Windows to 8.1 and i have problem because i cannot change firefox (and other applications, like iexplorer) power mode in Catalyst. I have lock icon and power saving.

I noticed, that sometimes my mouse jams and generally works slow (etc.) on firefox. What can I do with this?

Best regards, Rafal

I bet AMD are trying to cover up the failure to produce an all compatible switchable graphics system by power locking certain software.I own an Intel HD 2500 + AMD HD 8670M , and I am also unable to switch the graphics processor for my Opera browser and KMplayer.

Certain applications are profiled to the power saving GPU because there is generally little to no performance benefit to profiling them to high performance GPU. These profiles are usually determined by the manufacturer and/or AMD themselves.

 

I see that your laptop uses Intel-based integrated graphics + AMD discrete GPU; check if you have the latest Intel and AMD drivers from the Samsung website. Microsoft changed a lot of things on the backend with Windows 8.1, so there may be some issues with older drivers.
