Hardware:

HP Pavilion 500-149 Desktop PC

AMD A10-6700 APU with Radeon HD Graphics 3.70 GHz

8.0 GB RAM

Graphics Card:

AMD Radeon HD 8570 Graphics card

Operating System:

Windows 8.1 64-bit

 

Description:

I want to upgrade my desktop PC's operating system from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 using the clean install method. However, before doing that I would like to have confidence that there are graphics drivers that will work in Windows 10.  My system currently has Dual Graphics capability with Radeon HD 8670D graphics in the APU and the Radeon HD 8570 GPU in the graphics card.

 

There are no Windows 10 drivers for my graphics APU/GPU combination on the HP support website and my particular Dual Graphics configuration is not one that is listed in the AMD website:

https://www.amd.com/en/technologies/radeon-dual-graphics 

 

However, I was able to locate Windows 10 drivers for the A10-6700 HD 8670D  APU and also the HD 8570 GPU in separate places on the AMD website:

https://www.amd.com/en/support/apu/amd-series-processors/amd-a10-series-apu-for-desktops/a10-6700-radeon-hd-8670d 

https://www.amd.com/en/support/graphics/amd-radeon-hd/amd-radeon-hd-8000-series-oem/amd-radeon-hd-8570 

 

My question is whether I can simply download the above Windows 10 Catalyst Software Suite for the A10-6700 HD 8670D APU and the Adrenalin 2019 Edition for the HD 8570 GPU as separate entities and expect them to work together in Dual Graphics mode.


If there is no possibility of the dual graphics configuration working in Windows 10, then I would like to know if I can get just the graphics card GPU to do all the work and bypass the graphics in the APU.  I am not a gamer so realistically I don't need the performance of Dual Graphics but I would like to know if it is possible to only use the graphics in the GPU and what drivers to download to accomplish this.
