Re: AMD drivers for Win 10 & AMD cards supporting DX12

damnnnnnnnn looks like my 6520g + 6470m will not be supported , but what i dont understand is this:

windows 10 builds showed me with dxdiag directx 12, now with windows 10 release it  just show me directx 11.1, so i will not have directx 12 support? and it gives me the same error with a6-3420m llano, and i also remember some rumors that say that if u have directx 11.1 them u will have directx 12 (in the img instead of 6550d i have 6520g

Re: AMD drivers for Win 10 & AMD cards supporting DX12

Any HD 8xxxG (or 8xxxD) are Richland GPU's and based on VLIW4 (as found in the HD6xxx series of GPU's), so they won't be made DX12 compatible.

The HD 8600M and 8700M series (Solar System/Mars) are GCN, so they ARE DX12 compatible.

Re: AMD drivers for Win 10 & AMD cards supporting DX12

Your APU is a Richland (VLIW4/Terascale 3), and will not support DX12, just like your discrete 6670HD graphics card.

Re: AMD drivers for Win 10 & AMD cards supporting DX12

Your graphic solutions will not support DX12 anytime soon. Just having the latest DirectX installed doesn't mean it's actually supported.

Re: AMD drivers for Win 10 & AMD cards supporting DX12

um im wondering i just got a new laptop (3 days old)  i got the latest catalyst driver and everything seem to be updated upgraded to w10 yesterday) and i got Directx 11.2 any clues why i still don't have the latest one 12?

Such parameters

AMD 10-5750M APU Elite Quad Core 2,5GHZ-3,5 GHz

Radeon Graphics HD 8670M 2GB + Radeon HD 8650G

Asus model R510DP-XX118H

I have to admit im kinda annoyed cause alot of my friends already have 12 installed while i still got 11.2 do i have to download it or something (im not good with software so no idea what could went wrong) .

Re: AMD drivers for Win 10 & AMD cards supporting DX12

Your cards DO support DX12 (at feature level 12_0 even), however it seems that version 0.8.5 of GPU-z fails to detect it properly (I've got two R9 290X's and they're presented as being DX11.2 by GPU-Z).

Re: AMD drivers for Win 10 & AMD cards supporting DX12

forcjum​: Your APU is a Richland APU, which was the last model family before GCN was introduced into APUs (GCN is required for DX12 support).

The fact that you just bought it suggests that it was priced to move because it is obsolete. You have my sympathy.
