AMD has fulfilled a promise to Deliver its Ryzen Mobile APUs under the umbrella of Its Own Routine Radeon Software driver and Attribute Upgrades.
Ahead of this, laptops with AMD Rryzen Mobile APUs could just obtain drivers via laptop manufacturers, who are not as ordinary as AMD and other component manufacturers are when it comes to validating and distributing updates. In response to growing customer protests online, AMD promised in November 2018 to operate with notebook manufacturers to guarantee at least two upgrades per year. While still much behind the regular pace at which drivers are published for desktop GPUs, this was an improvement.
This was compared to this November announcement , published about the AMD subreddit, which place the onus of driver updates entirely on notebook manufacturers. At the moment, AMD said”It is important to see our graphics drivers are typically tailored to specific OEM platforms, therefore releasing generic APU images drivers across all AMD Ryzen cellular processor-based mobile systems could result in less-than-ideal user experiences.”
Now, it seems like those problems have been surmounted, or AMD agreed with user opinions about the Reddit thread which using drivers which are greater than a year out of date is currently a less-than-ideal encounter. The brand new driver’s release notes state”We’ve assessed all consumer feedback/concerns, and believe we can offer a unified driver for the AMD platforms in market, and have delivered to the requests of our community”
AMD still recommends that consumers pick the drivers released by device manufacturers initially, either directly or via Windows Update. This is unlikely to prevent fans from making certain that they have the latest drivers straight from AMD.
The newly released Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition, variant 19.2.3, will bring all Ryzen Mobile APUs up thus far. Not only does the release contain updated drivers, but users may also be able to use the Radeon Settings software which allows for all kinds of control over a Radeon GPU, including resolution scaling, global and per-game optimisations, game compatibility recommendations, performance monitoring, automatic updates, and also the AMD Link mobile program. Further, AMD says that Ryzen Mobile users can expect bug fixes, and an average 10 percent performance improvement. The driver is said to produce up to 17 percent greater performance in esports titles in particular, when compared with this Ryzen Mobile launch driver, version number 17.40.
