Good day
Sorry for my english, I'm from Ukraine


I Have HP Pavilion 15 n028sr


  CPU - Mobile QuadCore AMD A10-5745M, 2600 MHz (26 x 100)

  Motherboard - Hewlett-Packard HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC

  Mainboard chipset - AMD Bolton, AMD K15.1

  RAM - 7366 Mb (DDR3-1600 DDR3 SDRAM)

  DIMM1: A-Data AM1L16BC4R1-B1GS 4 Gb DDR3-1600 DDR3 SDRAM

  DIMM2: A-Data AM1L16BC4R1-B1GS 4 Gb DDR3-1600 DDR3 SDRAM

  BIOS Insyde (10/26/2015)

  APU AMD Radeon HD 8610G (Richland)
  GPU AMD Radeon HD 8670M (Sun)


     The problem is that, when I try to install the driver on the GPU 8670m i report that my graphics card is not supported, but in a written specification that supports it as far as I understand a problem in 8610G APU is not supported.
     Ok since the Crimson Edition 16.7.2 is not installed on the 8610G, I decided to find a driver for it, and I found the Catalyst Software 15.7.1 for more 7/29/2015, of Happiness to the driver installed correctly, but when I run the game I see artifacts on textures, fps very low, play is not comfortable, they have never seen. I decided to look for more and found Crimson Edition 16.2.1 Beta 3/1/2016, these drivers do not have the artifacts, but when you turn the game into a tray, the message "Driver stopped working and was reinstated" have to restart the game. At this point I stopped searching for driver.

     The question is why did AMD do that? Is not only my laptop has a 8160G APU, and a lot more, and all of a problem with the driver, they can not receive updates to their R7 M260, HD 8670m etc.   

    I do not think that to add support for the AAP 2013 release is too costly for AMD but she did not.I can not properly use the AMD product, I lose my time and lost money, the more I will not make that mistake.


     I have always used only AMD, but since AMD does not value their customers I will not buy AMD
