Does AMD care about Ryzen Mobile at all?

It has been an year since Raven Ridge was released. I am using a laptop with Ryzen 5 2500U. Decent hardware. However, it is crippled by bad drivers. My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 5575. Now, I'm quite sure that Dell would not release any driver updates anyways. It's something all OEMs do. But does AMD plan to support this hardware in the future? With the current drivers (17.7), it's impossible to watch videos on VLC, system BSODs occasionally when playing embedded videos on webpages in Edge, 1366x768 screen resolution is not available even though the 1080p panel supports it, driver would not start when Hyper-V is enabled and so on.

 

Now, I am definitely not the only one facing such issues. There are many others out there who are clamoring for Raven Ridge support. Does AMD have anything to say regarding this? Will they ever release reference drivers? If yes, when? If no, why?

 

I really don't want AMD's recent success to turn them into an anti-consumer company.
