What's up guys, I just bought myself an MSI GX60. For the exact model, it's this one here.

I got it for gaming purposes, and I'm having some issues with low FPS. The game it came with, Hitman, on medium shows up as 20fps..World of Warcraft should be playing for much higher than my desktop, and it's running from mid 20s - high 30s FPS on Ultra sitting around a main city or doing nothing. With these specs I should be able to play most games on high/ultra with relative ease. It's worth noting that, I don't get any tearing or anything like that, just lag.
Now, if you look at that newegg link you'll notice the second reviewer mentions that one has to manually switch the APU with the 7970M so you can game with no problems. I checked everywhere to try and switch it, but I can't figure it out.
From my understanding, this laptop is supposed to switch between the 8650G and the 7970M when in and out of gaming. 8650G for regular use, 7970M for gaming and other intense use. It's obviously not doing this, and I've read in many other spots that you have to switch it yourself but no one seems to explain how they did it. It's probably very simple but I can't find it, if someone can help me with this issue that would be grand.
Separated the link because, I can't post them yet
