According to its specifications this laptop has the Geforce 310M Features and Specifications - R580 Notebook | Samsung Office
Your laptop may have a feature called Nvidia Optimus which can switch from Intel HD graphics to the Geforce one
Go to Nvidia control panel and set Preferred graphics processor to "High-performance Nivdia processor"
