HDMI on AMD laptops
tuxintuxedo commented on 18 February 2020 at 3:41 pm UTC

Probably many of you know, that in Intel laptops including Nvidia GPU the HDMI port is only accessible through the Nvidia card, you cannot use it while the latter is turned off.
My question is, what is the state of the HDMI port on an Intel + AMD GPU or AMD + AMD GPU combination laptop? Can it be used with the integrated GPU or you need the discrete one as well, like with Nvidia?

AMD support PRIME.

Yep, PRIME is the way!

I keep an old Phenom II desktop PC and a slightly younger A6 notebook around, both with an iGPU+dGPU-combo. PRIME lets me select the GPU I want to use with a particular app or game while the connected output(s) stay(s) the same.
