Note: Additional hardware (e.g. Blu-ray drive, HD or 10-bit monitor, TV tuner, HDMI connector) and/or software (e.g. multimedia applications) are required for the full enablement of some features. Not all features may be supported on all components or systems – always check with your component or system manufacturer for specific model capabilities and supported technologies.
AMD Dynamic Switchable Graphics technology requires either an AMD “A” series APU or an Intel processor, plus an AMD Radeon™ discrete graphics configuration and is available on Windows® 7 Professional, Windows® 7 Ultimate, Windows® 7 Home Premium, and/or Windows® 7 Home Basic OS. Linux OS supports manual switching which requires restart of X-Server to switch between graphics solutions. With AMD Dynamic Switchable Graphics technology, full enablement of all discrete graphics video and display features may not be supported on all systems (e.g. OpenGL applications will run on the integrated GPU or the APU as the case may be). Always check with your system manufacturer for specific mode capabilities and supported technologies.
