    Question for AMD = Legacy + GCN drivers


      I just tested graphic drivers 15.11 beta and 15.12.

      15.11 beta supports my APU(5750m - 8650G) + linked GPU(m290x)

      but 15.12 doesn't support (legacy)8650G BUT i can install it !!

      8650G - 15.201.1151.1010

      m290x - 15.300.1025.1001.

      Two separate drivers working together !!

      One is catalyst and second is crimson.


      Now my question is... If it was possible before why did you do it impossible with

      new drivers ?!

          The HD8650G has reached peak optimisation and been moved to legacy status, there will not be any further driver updates for your product. More information available here.


          The latest Crimson driver for your system is 16.2.1 and is available here.

          The last Catalyst driver for your system is 15.11.1 Beta and is available here.

              Do You own iGPU 8650G ?

              I do and i can make for You video that 15.12 doesn't support it.

              When i go to device manager and install manually drivers for it from 15.12 - C0298676.inf it doesn't show it!!

              Look for it yourself . 8650G or 990B. Good luck to You


              P.S. On the other hand 16.2.1 drivers doesn't support m290x.


              My dGPU is Linked with iGPU, I can't turn iGPU off and with this i need drivers that contains both.


              I want them to leave communication between old and new drivers. It's not hard. It worked in case of 15.11 and 15.12 drivers.

              I want my dGPU to get new drivers. That's it.

                I have R9 M290X and stupid a10-5750M with legacy status and I can't install latest drivers for my R9 because AMD decide to forget about A10-5750M.

                Let me turn off iGPU and my life will be fine (a don't care about power usage) or do something with drivers.
