Which AMD drivers do I download for my 4700u Laptop?

Hello! I have a Lenovo Flex 5 with a 4700u. I have downloaded the 4700u drivers (20.9.1) from the AMD driver website. When I look at the "check for windows updates" tab there's an option to install AMD display drivers 27.20.1020.1. Should I install these drivers alongside the other one? Should I uninstall the 20.9.1 driver and install this one instead? Or should I just keep the 20.9.1?

Thanks for your help!

Keep using what is working. Sometimes a update is offered if you are using a beta (non-WHQL) driver..which would be a downgrade.

We are not officially supporting APUs via pre-built drivers on amd.com - there hasn't been much demand other than for OpenCL - but we test and upstream APU driver support before launch into kernel, libdrm, mesa etc...

The packaged drivers should work on Renoir, but if you have a reasonably current distro (rolling release, Ubuntu 20.10, Fedora 33 or downstream) then you should have full driver support included in the distro.

I'm facing video & audio stuttering on my Lenovo Ideapad 5 with Ryzen 7 4700U processor at times, but it gets fixed with reboots. Please let me know if you'd like some more information from my setup. I recently bought this machine from Amazon & removed Windows & installed Ubuntu.

I'm glad that your team is likely already working on providing Linux drivers(I recently got rid of a 7th Gen Intel corei5, I'm in for a ride hoping for a better CPU) , please let me know if there is a public bugzilla where I can file issues or a mailing list where I can send out my system info & other helpful debugging information directly to AMD developers. I missed capturing the dmesg output with the text amdgpu, I'll do that next time in addition to the things you'd like to have from my system when this issue occurs again. There are videos on YouTube which do claim similar issues. I'd be more than happy to help.
