Indicate your interest for Samsung to implement a fix for the OpenGL issue

  1. I'm all for it, Samsung should implement a fix.

  2. Otherwise I may consider returning the Series 7 for a refund.

    I have not actually tested, but I have it on the Performance power option (not the samsung optimized option) and even so i get 4+ hours off batter (not including any gaming time).

    Thank you fatalwound03.

    But it did not work for me. It is still the intel HD driver that is running.
    I followed your description except to double check if neither card was active after uninstalling and deleting the current drives. But the resolution was so low so they couldnt have been active.

    Guess I have to wait for Samsung to solve it.

    Thanks again though.

    I'm also supporting this! I'm having the same problem, and (in my opinion) the actual "high performance" and "energy saving" modes are pretty useless. I wrote it in another thread:

    I hope that a driver update to be released soon. I'm thinking in trying Leshat drivers by the way, but I don't know if solves the problem (The laptop can use graphic switching or I have forced to use AMD card always?)

    I was suspecting that the laptop did not change to AMD Card in Chrome (High performance mode) so I've run an experiment:

    I've selected a webgl example from chromeexperiments (webgl is a technology to use hardware rendering in browser) and I've run GPU-Z. The results:

    AMD Card



    Intel Card


    Obviusly, the automatic switching doesn't work in several cases (OpenGL, certain programs...) So I hope that Samsung realized about the need of a driver update. For me, it doesn't made any sense that I can't use AMD Card if the laptop if connected to AC or execute OpenGL programs, etc.

    Same on me with bluescreen on YT or Vimeo HD videos, I had bluescreen twice when I was running on battery. On AC I didnt have BSOD.

    ok guys, quick update:
    after uninstalling leshcats drivers, deep cleaning the drivers with driver sweeper, and reinstalling the latest leshcat, Cinema 4d R12 was still not working. i the updated it to its latest version, and now im happy to announce that the program is at least behaving like the R13, and recognizing open gl, albeit still showing the intel HD 3000 instead of the ATI chip. its progress i suppose, right? should get me going until they finally release the option for fixed mode.
    also i still get the choppy videos on youtube full screen also....
    but gaming is working just fine.

    I got my laptop a few days ago and recieved an automatic bios update yesterday, but it hasn't fixed the youtube / vimeo HD issue.

    Is there anyway to get you tube or vimeo working in HD?
