Default Lenovo IdeaPad Y560p switchable graphics update?

Hello once again!

I've had this y560p for about 8 months now, and I knew it didn't support switchable graphics at the time (while it could), but I read in several places that it's possible for a software update to enable us to use it later on.

I've been searching all around the interwebs for a possible update, but maybe I'm just looking in the wrong place.

Does anyone know if such an update exists, and if so where I can get it, or if it's not out yet will it ever even be possible?

Many thanks!

Perhaps just try updating the GPU drivers? That's what controls the switchable graphics on my laptop.
