    Radeon HD 6510G2: Radeon HD 6470M + Radeon HD 6480G (Ubuntu 19.10, Fedora 30)

    What's up dudes.
    I have 305E5A-S07 laptop dual booting with windows 7
    AMD Dual-Core A4-3305M APU
    8 Gb RAM
    Radeon HD 6510G2: Radeon HD 6470M (64 бита) + Radeon HD 6480G graphix

    Now hear me out..

    Just a week ago I've installed Ubuntu on this system. Ubuntu 19.10 if I'm not mistaken.
    Well, that system had AMD configuration utility. I forgot it's name, but I could choose which program would use which graphics processor.

    Now bare with me.. I've switched to Fedora 30 (because flatpaks made Ubuntu unbearably slow to use).

    How to get that same configuration program on my Fedora 30? Plz help me out, do not send me to Fedora forums, I will not get help there. Fedora forums are full of newbs just like me, and when people that don't know much try to help you, it's not going anywhere, it's all about having a conversation that doesn't go anywhere. You can help me more than them. Plz do.

    The system you're using with AMD/ATI cards, which have the already built-in open-source drivers, as well as Intel's drivers.

    It is NOT recommended to use any extra drivers; the open-source drivers were developed by ATI and the FOSS developers, and are the best drivers available.

    In other words, relax!

    I drink my Ubuntu black, no sugar.

    Oh, I have no doubt that I have the latest drivers installed.

    What I want to do is control what GPU programs use by default. I can launch a program in gnone via right click using discrete GPU, but obviously I want all programs to use discreet graphics for performance. This is what I'm after.

    Aga!!! SOLVED!

    There is a program, called CoreCtrl, it replaces Radeon Control Center from AMD. You install it, configure profile, configure the program to run minimized on startup, and it works!
