By using the latest version of the AMD Radeon Software, we can now confirm that Smart Access Memory is activated. Browse over to the Performance tab and open the Tuning panel. On this page, you'll find “Smart Access Memory.” Here you can enable or disable the setting.

You first must enable SAM in BIOS. If you laptop doesn't have the BIOS Settings to enable SAM then you laptop doesn't support that option.

This AMD System Specs to have SAM enabled: https://www.amd.com/en/technologies/smart-access-memory

On my 5800H machine SAM was enabled by default.  You can also check for it by using gpu-z.
