I went over a moment ago to check on drivers for my 50th Ann 5700XT and instead of seeing a 19.9.2 driver download, all I saw there was an "auto-install" program of 27mb for Windows 10. What's the purpose of putting this up instead of the standard full driver download? I usually like doing it myself and stay away from auto-installers like this because they often goof and sometimes badly. Is this a new trend for GPU drivers? I see the chipset driver download includes a driver and not an auto-installer, so what's happening here? I already have 19.9.2 installed, and running the auto-installer it simply "All components are present"--which I knew before I ran the installer.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for the link...what I cannot understand is where you found it....;) If I go to the usual AMD link I always use, www.amd.com/en/support , and follow the links for my 5700XT (50th Ann), under the Win10 driver section--the 19.9.2 driver isn't there--only a 27mb auto-install program is there. (Same thing for the Win7 drivers--which I don't use.) There is no link for release notes, like there usually is, as well.
Now I'm wondering if the page autoconfigures if it detects I already have the latest drivers installed. Strange. Wondering if this is a one-off or some new website paradigm for the drivers...
