Please help me update my AMD drivers for Radeon HD7900 Series

Jump to solution

Hello, I need help updating my AMD drivers. I'm very poor with hardware and I'm not sure how to do since every avenue I've used to do it in the past has been seemingly stripped from me. Windows 10 hasn't politely told me I needed to update in a very long time, my "AMD Radeon Settings" only has "Preferences" and "Notifications" at the bottom along with the social media links (the "Update" tab has disappeared) and I can no longer find the AMD auto-detect tool on the website. According to the settings I'm using a Radeon HD 7900 series but when I search for that on the AMD site I get no results. Could someone point me towards the latest update for a HD 7900?

Find unknown devices using a vendor and device ID. | Device Hunt

Go to device manager, right click on the AMD graphics/properties..select Device ID. Search for that value in the above app.

(These are examples..not your specific card)

Laptop or desktop pc ?

If Device manager > display adaptors,or System information > components > display doesn't show full model (e.g 7970, 7950 etc (with, w/out M)).

Then download GPU-Z or Speccy.

Ryzen 5 5600x, B550 aorus pro ac, Hyper 212 black, 2 x 16gb F4-3600c16dgtzn kit, Aorus gen4 7000s 2tb, Nitro+RX6900XT, RM850, Win.10 Pro..

Desktop PC.

Device manager also said I had a 7900 and I can't find any "System information" screen that lists my video card, just my processor along with other tidbits.

I'll keep the last part open as an option but I'd rather wait and see if there's any other solutions before I download something (that isn't from AMD).

After following the instructions above I got the result of 7950, a valid driver on the AMD site, however looking at the driver downloads I see it listed as "Adrenalin Edition" and according to my AMD settings I'm using "Crimson ReLive". Is that a problem? Did I find the wrong driver or am I just so out of date Adrenalin has replaced Crimson?
