I have a hybrid-graphics system with power-saving onboard Intel graphics, and an ATI accelerator (Lenovo z51-70, i5, 8 GB RAM, SSD)
Back in 14.04, with fglrx, I used to have ATI Catalyst, which would provide me with an option of switching between the cards, and using HDMI, playing games, etc. Now it seems, since AMDGPU is used in 16.04 LTS, I cannot seem to enable my ATI discreet GPU.
Any ideas how I can do that, considering the fact fglrx is depricated?

which is not used.
Is my display controller active, installed, and is it using AMDGPU? If so, how can I enable it and use it, or switch between the cards?
Alternatively, how can I make HDMI work over my power-saving Intel VGA controller?
