    amd auto detect software gives me Radeon HD 8950 drivers for my amd firepro 6100 graphics card

    antiguy1994

      I have a laptop with a AMD Firepro 6100 graphics card and want to make sure I have the latest drivers for it whenever I look for my graphics card or use the amd auto detect software it gives me Radeon HD 8950 drivers. I was wondering to find out if this is what I should have installed because I have heard that sometimes they merge drivers to work with different graphics cards when they get old. I have had issues with some games using the driver and its the only way I can configure my graphics card settings because the base drivers don't have a gui that lets you configure the settings.

              Describe your issue:

              • I try to download the drivers from the automatic installer Download Drivers on the downloads drivers section it gives me Radeon HD 8950 Drivers, Radeon Pro 17.Q2.1 Software with Vulcan when installing. I done it manually putting in my information and it gives me the same software.
              • Details about applications/games affected (including version number)
                • When I use these software and drivers the game that is affect the most is Overwatch the game will frequent crash make a windows error noise and freeze until it randomly closes or I click it to close it. Majority of the time I get no errors messages why it is happening. One time it gave me the error "Your rendering device has been lost. It happens the least when using my default driver that is installed from my video card. The reason I am forced to use the software and radeon drivers is other games don't recognize my graphics card and I am not able to control my graphic card settings because there is no software that lets me do this installed by default. I am hoping to get some help on to the reason for this happening or get guided to a fix for the issue I am having.
