Almost for one year I couldn't fix it. I gave many feedbacks and I didnt get any answer..
I cleaned up with ddu, ccleaner, almost all driver versions, i tried leshcat too. But nothing Works on Windows 10. How is that possible? My laptop Works really well on 8.1 But I want to try forza 6 for example but i cant. gpu-z shows that wheteher i launch gpu Works in 300 mhz and dont even move. it is like this for years. i uninstall Windows drivers too but nothing workss its really sad. can anybody help ? i have 4600+8970m laptop
I have a 8970m as well (in an Alienware M17x R2, 16GB Ram)
It might be a failing power supply, which cannot supply the needed power anymore. Happened to me 2 years ago, took a while till I figured it out, why my 8970m was suddenly throttling back to 300 MHz.
i don't think it is the reason. i went back to 8.1 but everything works without problem. I called my laptop's service and they said we contacted with AMD and they said that irs the general issue between w10 and amd. is that all AMD do, do nothing?
Any game launchs with Intel 4600. i tried everything. leshcat wot work too. or any official driver version of AMD. I downloaded w10 amd driver they wont work too and i stopped w10 updates too but still wont work .it is ashamed
Can you define what you mean by won't work?
Your GPU Has Windows 10 drivers available and should be compatible with our latest Crimson 188.8.131.52 driver.
I am back to 8.1 but i can define exactly what happens
Drivers work without problem on 8.1, I just upgraded my system to w10. When i entered games it didnt work on amd gpu. it was always opening on hd4600. i deleted amd and intel drivers and did fresh latest driver install for both of graphic card and it was still opening in intel. I selected high performance or gaming mode for laptop and i did maximize performance on everything. i added all my games for high performance but it didnt work too. I tried leshcat drivers and it didnt work too.
Weird thing is, When i enter crimson, it was showing " hardware '8970m' disabled". Really it was, i couldnt let it work on w10. I disabled windows drivers too but it didnt work too. i cant find the solution almost 10 months. isnt it weird? i really need a help
Beside that, when i install amd driver on w10, at the beginning it says amd install manager failure. even that happens it installs all amd drivers with crimson ui. but it says disabled on crimson . i dont know waht to do
It shows as disabled because your laptop display is wired to your Intel GPU, it does not mean the 8970m was disabled.
Did you enable the switchable graphics application monitor to verify that the Intel iGPU was being used?
it doesnt show disabled on w8.1 but it shows disabled on w10. Yes, I checked that out on gpuz too that, intel was working and amd was only on 300 mhz. as far as i remember
To configure an application to use the discrete GPU you need to open Radeon Settings > Preferences > Additional Settings.
In CCC Slim, navigate to Switchable Graphics Application Settings. This area will allow you to select which 3D application uses the Integrated GPU or the High Performance GPU. Add the application to CCC and select High Performance Mode to ensure that the High Performance GPU is used. Note, it is recommend to have the laptop plugged in and Windows configured to High performance mode in the Control Panel > Power options to ensure you get the best possible performance.
Enable the Switchable Graphics Application Monitor to check with GPU is being used for which applications. Enable it, play some games, disable it and then post the screenshot here.
