    When I launch skyrim, the launcher only shows my onboard graphics, and doesnt show my AMD graphics card. It launches but runs unbearably slow. Anyone have a fix?

    G'day @DevynKo :)

    Can you give us the output from Terminal of

    Code:
    inxi -G
    ?

    Mine looks like this

    In many machines with dual graphics, the rig will use the onboard Intel unless it detects that it needs to use the proprietary graphics. I do not know if that is the case with Steam.

    You could go to Software & Updates, choose Additional Drivers and see what is there. If it does not list your AMD, then you may need to download a proprietary driver.

    Cheers
