"activate" amdgpu

Hello all,
I have question.
I have AMD R7 M445 and intel GPUs I install from Yast xf86-video-amdgpu and when I type sudo lspci -nnk |grep -A3 VGA
output is:

sudo lspci -nnk |grep -A3 VGA

My question is how to setup amdgpu to use AMD cart for few apps for example gimp ?
Thanks :slight_smile:


on the last check made, only one type of card can be used per opensuse install

if the amd card is to be use, the intel card has to be disabled

if the intel card is part of the mainboard, disable it in the bios,
otherwise physically remove it


there are some laptops where you can’t disable intel gpu even if they have dedicated graphics card…
