I've just bought a lenovo ideapad flex14.
Excellent little laptop, but i´m wondering about a thing.
Under device manager --> display adapters, theres is two graphicscard. But there should only be one in the machine?
The two graphicscard in question is:
- AMD Radeon HD 8330
- AMD Radeon HD 8570M
My model is:
AMD A4-5000 quadcore 1,5 ghz.
AMD Radeon HD 8570M
8 GB DDR3 ram
it should only be the AMD radeon 8570M with 1 gb dedicated memory.
Furthermore severeal hardware info programs shows the same two graphics card, but only 8330 has temperature info, along with other informations.
Have any of you an idea of why this is?
Thanks in Advance

thats because your cpu has built in GPU as well, this is called APU when amd has gpu built inside their cpu chip so then it detects 2 gpu 1 from cpu and 2nd one thats installed on motherboard it's same for intel laptops they usually have Intel HD graphics card built inside cpu chip while 2nd gpu is installed onto motherboard.
every AMD Ax series of cpu has a GPU in them if i now understood it right.
