thanks for the response, but thing is that I don't see anything in the 15.12 release notes that says that it would fix this issue with switchable graphics.
I reverted back to windows 8.1 until there is a fix from AMD. re-installing windows 10 over and over again, and hoping for the best is rather time-consuming.
So can anyone confirm (or deny) that the switchable graphics issue is resolved with the 15.12 drivers in windows 10?
I re-installed windows 10 with the crimson 15.12 drivers and this resulted in:
- I still cannot open the "radeon settings" (i get the error: "No AMD graphics driver is installed, or the AMD driver is not functioning properly. Please install the AMD driver appropriate for your AMD hardware")
- but the software I tried, is now using the AMD HD 8970m hardware instead of the intel HD 4000
But I have no ability to choose which software should run on which hardware (since i cannot open the settings), however the 15.12 drivers are already an improvement. (does anyone know how to access the "advanced settings" (style Catalyst control center) directly (so i can possibly avoid the above error?)
with the Crimson 16.1.1 (cleaninstall) it's still the same error. "No AMD graphics driver is installed, or the AMD driver is not functioning properly. Please install the AMD driver appropriate for your AMD hardware."
for a system that is compatible with windows 10 according to microsoft and AMD, it's quite a dissapointment that even the AMD settings won't open...
is there an option to just disable this check in the radeon software, i mean i know the AMD card is installed and gpu-z can see it, so this just seems to be an AMD software issue
