Blade 14 usb-c using iGPU and not dGPU

When I connect a monitor through a dock using DisplayPort or HDMI to a USB-C port, it defaults to utilizing the Radeon graphics GPU instead of the more powerful Nvidia one. I am aware that the HDMI port is directly linked to the Nvidia GPU, but the current setup limits me to just one monitor on the Nvidia graphics, impacting overall performance.

I'm not 100% sure but I saw something online somewhere that said that one of the USB type C's is connected to the DGPU and the other one is connected to the IGPU and the HDMI is directly connected to the DGPU

I’ve checked both ports and sadly both are connected to the igpu.

Seems I forgot to add that it is for the 2022 model.
