Journeyman III

having different driver after updating

i have hp 15-bs123ne

which has radeon 520 GPU (as noted in hp official site)

after installing the original driver from hp and having AMD software installed as well and it showed that i have radeon 520 as it should do (pic 1)

then i checked for updates and installed the i found on the app

i opened the app again after installing the update and restarting the laptop

i found that it shows that i have R5 m330 (pic 2)

adding that also before i install the official driver from hp. windows was downloading that driver (R5 m330) as well but i aborted it

and after making some further research i found that they are almost the same GPU with having the same chip (as i understood)

with some modifications and improvements

so my questions here are

1-should i uninstall that driver and install the official driver and never update it till hp releases a new update

2-(if no) is it okay to leave that driver and update it?

(considering if there won't be any problems i am okay with leaving it and just having different name)

You should use the latest AMD driver from HP. The Radeon 520M is a OEM only graphics chip and they are responsible for updates. The update will generally include the Intel graphics driver as well...which you need.


the update for Intel graphics card are separate

(as I've just checked)

So shall I just leave it?


You must update both graphics chips...preferably the Intel graphics first.

Also check for other updates such as bios, chipset, etc.
