AMD Radeon 520

I'm using a AMD Radeon 520 in HP labtop 15-bs130ng with Arch linux on it.

It looks like I have the open source drivers but I want the AMD drivers but I didn't found some.

inxi -Fxz gave me this output:

Device-1: Intel UHD Graphics 620 vendor: Hewlett-Packard driver: i915
v: kernel bus ID: 00:02.0
Device-2: AMD Sun XT [Radeon HD 8670A/8670M/8690M / R5 M330 / M430 / R7
vendor: Hewlett-Packard driver: radeon v: kernel bus ID: 01:00.0
Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.3 driver: radeon tty: N/A
OpenGL: renderer: Mesa DRI Intel UHD Graphics 620 (Kabylake GT2)
v: 4.5 Mesa 18.3.3 direct render: Yes

What can I do?

The AMD 520M is a OEM graphics chip and the drivers are available only from the manufacturer.
