    Just been doing some 4k video editing in sony vegas and to be honest, i am not overly impressed. preview stutters, high 80deg c temps. it just struggles, i have ensured the gpu acceleration is enabled for the radeon chip but i think there are some driver issues as it seems to be using the intel gpu. the whole laptop handles like standard notebook and i honestly cannot see the benefit of the radeon chip

    Vegas probably isn't the thing to base your performance impressions upon right now. Their forums are filled to the brim with issues on "legacy" hardware so it doesn't surprise me that it isn't performing on all cylinders on a brand new chip.

    thats exactly it, its not "firing on all cylinders" it just feels like it has soo much potential, yet its not quite up there yet. it could be that the software needs to catch up with the hardware.

    If you believe Vegas is using the intel graphics processor, make sure the OS is using the Radeon GPU for Vegas. I've only used laptops with nVidia processors, but the way they work with an iGPU is that you have to tell the graphics driver which GPU to use for each program if it doesn't choose the correct one automatically.

    Some apps, including Vegas don't switch, even if you try to force them, you are stuck with the rendering via iGPU, unless you try rendering with CPU - it allowed.

    This is one of the sad Optimus gotcha's, there are apps that just won't use anything but the default GPU - which is iGPU in Optimus systems.
