    Release date for driver that supports vega 8 mobile?


      I wonder when since i am having HUGE problems with 17.7 version.


      Right after I got HP envy x360 with Ryzen 5 2500u, i've installed Windows 10 Enterprise N LSTB 64bit (removed Home version from HP since it is bloated).


      The problem is next:


      all drivers are working fine, but after i install Vega 8 Mobile Driver Radeon Crimson ReLive 17.7 (from HP site, not AMD) my laptop literally enters unusable state. Whole OS freezes, my mouse stutters, can't even play music from youtube because it crashes (sound stuttering). Wifi stops working too.


      I primarly use laptop for graphic design, and some gaming (pretty rarely). I guess it is safe to say that it is iGPU driver issue.

      Battlefield 4 even says that Vega 8 Mobile doesn't support directX 10...so it is unable to start. On youtube i can't use fullscreen mode because screen starts to look nasty.


      Done reinstalling OS multiple times, tried downloading driver finder directly from AMD website - cannot even recognize what GPU is laptop using.

      Tried 17.7 version from AMD directly, doesn't even install the driver.

      Tried every single newer driver version starting from 17.7 from AMD - doesn't work.

      I guess it is still not supported.

      Whenever i boot laptop i get openGL error window...

      I did contact HP and didn't get any answer (so 8 days so far)...



      Any help, please?


      Much obliged

          yeah bro i have the same experience.... vlc won't even display image everything is green. fk even youtube won't play properly and it crashes my computer too. i know amd is very focused on the fking ryzen 2 but come on..... we believed in amd to at least give us a usable experience. please give us a driver update.... but with your problem i didn't have mouse stutter and os problem... maybe because i changed to a nvme ssd..... all i have is video playback and gaming issue. games with cpu heavy load runs great but those that are more gpu intensive isn't good .. fortnite 720 p is almost playable... but that might be the games problem
