    Is my APU supported by the Windows 10 15.7.1 driver?

      Hi, my laptop is running an AMD E1-1200 APU with Radeon HD Graphics (7310), and I was having troubles finding drivers. When I use autodetect, it said it could not find a driver. I tried searching with the manual select, but I couldn't find what I was looking for. I saw this in one post Re: APU a10 7300 didnt support directx 12 why?  that it would support the AMD Radeon HD 7300. But it says here

      Q: What AMD Radeon™ GPUs or AMD APUs will be compatible with DirectX® 12?

      A: When paired with a DirectX® 12-ready graphics driver, the following GPUs will be compatible with DirectX® 12:  AMD Radeon™ R9 Series graphics,  AMD Radeon™ R7 Series graphics,  AMD Radeon™ R5 240 graphics,  AMD Radeon™ HD 8000 Series graphics for OEM systems (HD 8570 and up),  AMD Radeon™ HD 8000M Series graphics for notebooks,  AMD Radeon™ HD 7000 Series graphics (HD 7730 and up), AMD Radeon™ HD 7000M Series graphics for notebooks (HD 7730M and up), AMD A4/A6/A8/A10-7000 Series APUs (codenamed “Kaveri”), AMD A6/A8/A10 PRO-7000 Series APUs (codenamed “Kaveri”), AMD E1/A4/A10 Micro-6000 Series APUs (codenamed “Mullins”), AMD E1/E2/A4/A6/A8-6000 Series APUs (codenamed “Beema”)

       

      it only supports HD 7730 Series graphics and up.

       

      I would really like to have DX12 features, so please respond. Sorry if this should be very clear to me. So, should I get the APU drivers, or just stick with the ones I have from MS. They work ok, I just want DX12.

       

      Also when writing this post I just found out, DXDIAG says I have DirectX 11.1, but I was using Realtek HD Audio Manager to do some things, and I clicked about.

       

      It says I have DX12. So... any help?
