Where does one find embedded driver release notes?

Jump to solution

I see there is a new driver for my MF box.

17.40.2815.1009-180214a-325217c-aes.zip

What I do not find is any sort of release notes hiding nearby or even inside this 540MB file.

How am I supposed to decide whether I should use this, or stick with

17.30.1075-170830a-317566c-aes.zip

Without release notes?

What changed? Will it make my R-series less of a baconator? Will it turn it into a fearsome game machine

(Why the drivers include game adverts for *embedded* hardware is another story.)

To check:

Go to: Drivers & Support

Manually Select Your Driver

Step 1 Select "Embedded Graphics"

Step 2 Select "Radeon Embedded" (only choice here)

Step 3 Select "R-Series 3rd Gen formely codenamed Merlin Falcon

Step 4 Select "Windows 10 - 64 Bit"

Step 5 let's go!

Stare in awe at the complete lack of release notes.

It is also worth pointing out that 17.30.1075 etc has disappeared from the "Previous Embedded GPU and APU drivers"

For what it is worth and to end this particular scenario.

Embedded Graphics

17.40.2815

This driver is *garbage* and crashes more often than not with KMODE BSODs.

Do not use it.

If your referring to graphics drivers, here is the normal way to select the correct one and the "Read Me" notes are on the driver download page. Whats important here ( INFORMATION REQUIRED WHEN POSTING A QUESTION  ) is your processor/APU  and whether this is a laptop or desktop.

Download Drivers

Manually select your driver:

Bunnie Do you see where I chose "EMBEDDED" in the above post/screenshot? I could not finish because I don't know What/Which embedded graphics you have. Do the same and fill in the information that you will not share with us.

If you can give a model number of your computer maybe someone can help. There are tons of different "embedded" graphics.....which one do you have?

As mentioned in the original post, where I wrote "to check:"

I'm sure there are readme's and release notes for the latest and greatest game obsessed bitcoin miners, but you only have 1 card to screw up.

I'm likely to have thousands, hence I need release notes.

I see what you mean...I have never noticed/seen this before

Even laptop APU's with embedded graphics furnish 'Read Me' (screenshot below)

You should use this link to ask AMD tech support directly > Email Form
