Compute Mode on a Laptop?

Are you able to use Compute mode on a Radeon RX 560X graphics card, inside of a laptop? My laptop is a "Nitro AN515-42". I checked Radeon Settings in the Advanced section for both of my graphics cards, and the option was not there.

Here is AMD instructions on how to change from Graphics to Computer mode: 

But if in Radeon settings doesn't have the option to change from Graphics to computer mode probably indicates that your GPU or laptop doesn't support that feature.

Okay thanks, I am wondering since every website I find says that it can, and even other people I ask for help.


The GPU Workload Compute/Graphics mode is not compatible with all AMD GPU Cards.

I would open an AMD Service Request (Official AMD SUPPORT) and ask them if your APU and GPU in your laptop supports Compute/Graphics mode or not: 

But from what I know, if a feature in Radeon Settings is not showing is generally indicates that it isn't supported by your GPU or APU.
