Was wondering why AMD Gaming Evolved doesn't find updates?
I was on Oculus's forum because they seem to dislike AMD and will fail a system (say its not compatible) if it is running an AMD processor and I wanted to find out why because in the SteamVR test, my AMD system blew away some systems with a i5 and beat some systems with an i7. While there I saw someone state that they couldn't update to 16.3.2. I responded by saying since 16.3.1 is their latest beta driver that could be why you cant install 16.3.2 ... then I checked your website and saw there was a new driver. I opened my AMD Gaming Evolved again and it said driver up to date with the 16.3.1 driver and when i clicked the Check for update it says I'm up to date. I feel foolish because I can't remove my post on Oculus now... Guess I will have to put in a note that AMD's software didn't notify me that there was a new driver.
If I check the AMD Radeon Settings and go to update there .. then run the check .. it does find the new driver but ... if I hadn't seen the post I wouldn't have known since I never use the check button on the Radeon Settings and the AMD Gaming Evolved checks for updates every time I launch it, I didn't think I had too.
Guess the checking for updates in AMD Gaming Evolved is broken ... I have always found the drivers by going to the website or hearing it on a tech channel that there has been an update... AMD Gaming Evolved has never once told me I needed to update a driver when a new one came out ... it always says I'm "up to date"
