i have a lenovo ideapad flex 4-1470
his specs are:
cpu: i5 6200U
gpu: r5 m430

ram: 8gb

amd driver version: 18.3.1

i am currently trying to start developing with the vulkan api but i cant even run the examples
like cube.exe it just crashes the moment the window pops up, i checked the vulkan supported cards and mine is included there
when i try to run cube in visual studio with debug mode it throws this exception:

"Exception thrown at 0x56C04EFD (amdvlk32.dll) in cube.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0x00000010."
