i'm really angry with this lack of support.
i've bought a notebook with APU Carrizo, but i haven't a good support neither on windows nor on linux.
i think that in future i'll buy again intel CPU.
i've a notebook HP pavilion ab062nl with A10 8700p and r7 m360 (dedicated GPU is useless, has high temperature and low performance), isn't possible that the last driver is the crimson 15.12 on windows... 5 months without update, very bad support for a new APU (it was released on june 2015).
on linux the situation is also worse, closed source driver are no more supported (not support latest versions of kernel and not support last version of xorg, and has also problem with gnome shell, futhermore closed source crimson driver NOT support dedicated gpu rx 300 series how is it possible that you don't support your gpus?), and open source driver has lower performance and higher temperature.
very very bad AMD, i was happy to buy and AMD APU carrizo, but now i'm very disappointed.
i hope that shortly you will release a new windows driver and i hope that the new AMDGPU-PRO linux driver will support my APU and my dedicated GPU, giving me good performance and low temperatures, otherwise i'll never buy other AMD products.
sorry but i'm really tired of your lack of support for YOUR products.
Yes, I can only say the same.
As I wrote before I'm a kind of a Fanboy, but not a dumb one. I like AMD desktop products and my PC is an AMD based one, but the lack of support for their latest mobile APUs is really, really, really disappointing.
There isn't any kind of communication, why they don't release new drivers for the latest mobile chips. They've only put this "not supported" footnote to the driver releases since one or two months and no info when we can expect anything.
I know that there is a some kind of a BUG, that they've found and it must be something big if they don't (want to) fix it.
dea1993 as I mentioned I also have a similar laptop and wanted to use the newest Ubuntu on it... Windows works with the 16.2. or something crimson driver, let's just say "fine". But I think you can agree with me if someone buys a laptop, that device is the most valuable in it's first 1-2 years, while it's still new and has the latest chip in etc. but if there's no support for the these new chips/laptops now, I don't know what we can expect. As far as I know the Richland APUs are not even supported anymore, but these chips are only 3 years old... They can argue that they dropped the support for a while, but it still means they don't support it now!
AMD's focus nowadays is mostly on dGPUs and they always innovate a lot and support future technologies, processes, they reform the industry, which is really great. But during all of these, I think they somehow forget to take care of the actual, up to date trends and things, what people want now, not in a few years...
AMD's biggest problem (or incapability to force the OEMs) on the mobile field, that the OEMs always screw up the notebooks somehow (single memory module, limited TDP, poor display) and if AMD doesn't support the mobile chips, I think its very bad for those people (us), who got those laptops...
I think it just confirms me, that no AMD representative has answered our question yet (or provided any info)!
Version 16.7.2 is out Radeon-Software-Crimson-Edition-16.7.2-Release-Notes
Still no word on APU support and of course Carrizo is still left well behind. TBH I didn't comment on the matter till now because I thought I would give them a chance to see if they are better than Intel (This being my first AMD product). I'm so peeved at AMD, even if they release the WHQL drivers now it's too little too late. I'm done with AMD and everything to do with them. They can blame OEM's all they want and I was willing to believe them but this poor support is completely on themselves.
I honestly don't even care anymore, AMD will never see another penny from me. Is it any wonder why Intel doesn't even try to be competitive when this is all they have to work against.
I'm still an AMD Fan boy (am I???), but you know, you're right. This is terrible support for thier "state of the art" mobile chip, or not even terrible, because how can be something terrible if it doesn't exist?!
another driver released (16.6.1) but still not support carrizo, very very bad AMD
It is now july and still no whql driver to support carrizo this means we have to use the 15.12 drivers and windows 10 is not really happy with it nor is my R7 M360 and A10 8700p with integrated R6 graphics.
Yeah, don't even mention... and the new RX 480, (which will bring salvation to the gamer on the performance/watt field) is just frying motherboards. According to the rumors... LOL
It seems AMD's most "productive" or best performing department is still the marketing department...
I hope at least AMDMatt or someone will answer our question.............
Yea... and the answers from AMD better come sooner rather than later as our patience is coming to an end quite rapidly.
