Description Todd Partridge 2012-09-11 12:27:14 CDT
Created attachment 574 [details]

Description of problem: Card is recognized but not as discrete GPU, unable to switch.

Steps to reproduce:
1. aticonfig --list-adapters

* 0. 00:01.0 AMD Radeon HD 6520G
  1. 01:00.0 AMD Radeon HD 7600M Series

2. aticonfig --px-list

PowerXpress: Discrete GPU is active (High-Performance mode).

6520G is recognized as discrete though it is the integrated GPU.

3. Tried switching BusID in xorg.conf to "PCI:1:0:0" (the discrete GPU BusID) however, causes X.org server to segfault.
