I've just bought 2nd hand ASUS X550IU Laptop with RX460M GPU, and everything was normal and I can modify my WattMan profile, until one day it is crashed when I tried to run X-Plane 11 and I uninstalled it with AMD Clean Uninstall Utility and installed the driver again from the web (current version : 18.2.1)
Now the problem is, I can't find the WattMan setting, I've tried to check for update and it says my driver is up to date.
Is there any answer for this issue?
FX9830P with R7 IGP
RX460M 4GB GDDR5
8GB DDR4 RAM
BIOS version X550IU.306 08/09/2017
OS : Windows 10 64 Bit
Thank you, looking forward to your answes
AMD Disables WATTMAN in laptops. Wattman is only for Desktops.
Laptop are not meant to be over/under clocked by software due to heat and power restrictions.
only desktop version of the software. If your using the proper laptop drivers wattman wont be included or you wont get much control to bump your settings. If you wanna OC you could try after burner but I would advise not to as you will run into many more issues & cook your crutch warmer. Most laptops are not meant to be OC or being a gaming spec.
Here are a few threads concerning Wattman in laptops:
From RAY_M, One of the Moderators here at AMD Forum. Copied from second link from above (GL702ZC):
Due to thermal issues, most laptops are not designed to support overclocking. Enabling Wattman on a laptop would enable BOTH under and overclocking, so it's disabled.
