Cant use Vulkan using my AMD GPU on a dual intel/amd GPU system

Hello,

I cant use my AMD GPU Vulkan driver capabilities on my dual Intel/AMD GPU laptop (a Dell laptop).

The Intel GPU Vulkan driver works as intended.

I am using Windows 10 as my OS and I am using the latest AMD drivers.

On Linux I do not get the same behavior - I can access both intel and AMD Vulkan drivers.

My AMD GPU is Radeon 530 and my Intel GPU is UHD 620.

here is the result of vulkaninfo :

I am not sure its AMD or Intel driver fault but I report there as well.

Thank you for your time.

Re: Cant use Vulkan using my AMD GPU on a dual intel/amd GPU system

I think I would send this information to AMD support. Online Service Request | AMD

You may also want to make sure you are doing the things recommended on this help page, but you issue may just be Vulkan issue:

Re: Cant use Vulkan using my AMD GPU on a dual intel/amd GPU system

The last thing you said wont apply if I use Vulkan as I can choose which GPU I want to use inside the software/game.

Thanks for you help anyway.

I also found this is a better place to talk about my issue:: OpenGL & Vulkan

Re: Cant use Vulkan using my AMD GPU on a dual intel/amd GPU system

I am sorry that i bump this again but I still got issues with the Vulkan driver using my PC.

Now there is a new problem : I cant use the AMDVLK driver as well.

I reported to their github repo in the past and still didnt get any way to fix the problem:

Garbled graphics · Issue #72 · GPUOpen-Drivers/AMDVLK · GitHub 

What I suspect is the problem is me using Hybrid Graphics AMD/Intel System with the Intel GPU being the primary GPU.

so now i cant use AMD official drivers properly on WIndows and LInux.

It once worked flawlessly on both Windows and Linux.

RADV driver works as intended.

If its possible maybe it's better to move this issue to the "OpenGL and Vulkan" forums.

Thank you.

Re: Cant use Vulkan using my AMD GPU on a dual intel/amd GPU system

LOL so it got moved just now.

The Windows thing already got solved recently.

I still got issues getting the driver to work on linux as i opened in another thread.

You can delete/close the thread.

Re: Cant use Vulkan using my AMD GPU on a dual intel/amd GPU system

Since AMD considers emulators a hack...I wouldn't expect them to do any testing. Have seen this question many times.

Re: Cant use Vulkan using my AMD GPU on a dual intel/amd GPU system

Well if you look at this forum specifically you will see that AMD tries to help emulator devs solve their problems.

The Linux issue got nothing to do with emulators - it does not work at all regardless of me using an emulator or not lol. 

BTW Retroarch is not really an emulator and i even get tearing on the frontend side.
