    Acer Predator Helios 500 – PH517-61 Where is Wattman?


      Hello, I am having a small problem with my new laptop. I am trying to find wattman but can't, i know where it should be it should be in Radeon Settings under the gaming tab and global settings. But i only have 2 tabs in Global Settings, and they are Global Graphics & Performance Monitoring. Original Drivers are 17.12 have tried newest 18.9.1 and 18.5.1 from:

      Radeon™ RX Vega 56 Drivers & Support | AMD


      None works, but i must note that when i uninstalled my drivers completely i couldn't install version 18.9.1 again because it would not recognize my hardware. So i had to go to acers website to download the vga driver there that is version 17.12. I can update this driver version to 18.9.1 and it will work but can't see any difference on the surface.


      Acers Website:

      Product support https://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/support-product/7737?b=1&pn=NH.Q3GED.004

      Does this gpu not support wattman? maybe? or simply not implemented yet?

      This is a brand new product so not alot of info out there so any help is appreciated
