Re: Lenovo y5070 graphics card

I am not quite sure where you are checking the details but this could be due to the Intelswitchable graphics.

 

Go to Control Panel > Device Manager > Display

Check in there if your graphics card is displayed, Right click and select Properties and you can see several details there.

 

You can also download GPU-z program to see detailed specs of your graphics card.

Re: Lenovo y5070 graphics card

The first image is not loading, not sure why.

 

The second image is showing current clocks as - , because your onboard Intel GPU is being used and not the discrete 960M. This is what I mentioned is called as Intel switchable graphics. Your 960M will be used when you do graphics intensive tasks such as gaming.

 

If you want to see full clocks and specs of your GPU, you will need the GPU-z software. It shows every detail, even if the GPU is being used or not.
