Switch graphics on Dell XPS 15? Answered


I'm wondering if it is possible to manually switch the graphics on a dell XPS 15 laptop.  It automatically switches on intensive tasks (like games), so performance is fine, but all of the benchmarking tools recognize the graphics card as "Intel HD (integrated) Graphics" instead of the NVIDIA 420M.  Is there a way that I can manually change the graphics for benchmarking purposes?  Thanks.

. There should be a control panel to do that or right-click on an empty spot on the desktop.

There is a control panel, but you cant manually switch the graphics. You can make it auto-switch based on what applications are active, but i dont think that you can manually switch it. I may be wrong though.
