Installing the test driver: 

  1. Unzip the file (right click, extract here/extract all/etc. depending on your zip utility of choice)

  7. Command prompt window will be gone
  8. Graphics driver has been updated, you can check in AMD Adrenalin Top left of "system' window should say released 11/7

Notes:

  • These drivers are dated 11/7 and are a step forward from our current official release, bringing notable enhancements.
  • Our original plan to release these drivers last week has been revised. We are now focusing on releasing a newer driver, aiming to include additional fixes and improvements.
  • The upcoming driver release will integrate the advancements found in this 11/7 version, along with further enhancements.
  • I did indicate we were trying to get a driver update out last week and because we had a pivot in release timing, I am hoping that this test driver can help address some of your issues while you wait for the final release of an updated driver.

  1. Open device manager (Windows Key + X > M, or search "device manager" in windows search)
  2. Open "display adapters" dropdown
  3. Right click on AMD Radeon Graphics
