Solidworks only uses slow integrated GPU

I recently installed the student-edition of Solidworks 2017, and noticed that it seemed to run quite slowly when designing parts. After running the SOLIDWORKS Rx system diagnostics tool, I noticed that SW is using my integrated GPU (Intel HD Graphics 4600) instead of my more powerful discrete GPU (AMD Radeon HD8970M). Is there any way to force SW to use the HD8970M instead of the HD Graphics 4600? Thanks very much.
