    They sure are, Intel is on same chip as processor and AMD is either separate piece or less likely on the MB. Considering those symptoms, computer is having hard time deciding which to use. 4000 should be used for 2D and simple tasks and AMD is supposed to jump in for 3D and other heavy uses.

    that's usually what I do I use 4000 for simple word processing and typing and HoMM 3

    amd is for Unity3D and stuff

    also I try to immediately assign a graphics adapter to a program right after installing it

    aaaaand i guess it's also worth mentioning that I always set my power plan to Maximum Performance, although I thoroughly tweaked the settings so not everything will be run at the AMD graphics, just the assigned ones. Would this be causing strain to the system?

    If you are using laptop as a "normal" PC, might as well set it run on that AMD GPU as that Intel one is there mostly to conserve battery.

    One final question: How do I add reputation?

    Edit: Nvm, found it

    No problem, try it like that on one GPU and see what happens.
