Sorry for the late reply, Haris. You can switch the graphic by choosing the power plan or change the setting of the power plan in control panel. Usually, plugging in automatically switches the graphic. R9 M280X supports crossfire, but doesn't do crossfire with the R7
Thanks ong. how do i want to switch graphic card on my asus n551zu when gaming? It have radeon r7 graphic and r9 m280x. Does r9 m280x support crossfire?
It does heat up easily. I own one but this babe can handle most of the games like a dream, at a killer price. I don't have any overheating issue now but it does heat up quite fast. i7 laptops can overheat too. It's just the matter of the method of how you use your laptop. If you force every drop of juice out of any laptop 24/7, it surely will overheat.
I also heard that amd laptop is get overheated easily
so,does the asus n551zu which contained this grphic card suitable for gaming? .i was noted that the asus n551zu is the multimedia laptop With processor amd r7 fx-7600p
It would be the m280x, normally gpuboss doesnt choose a winner if amd wins
which graphic card is better for gaming? Is it nvidia geforce gtx960m or amd r9 m280x?
