No driver update for AMD Radeon™ Vega 8 Graphics

  Jake Cleary 10:32 26 Aug 2018

I have recently purchased the Acer Swift 3 laptop with AMD Ryzen™ 5 2500U Mobile Processor with Radeon™ Vega 8 Graphics. I have just gone to play a game and it has told me that my driver is out of date; however when going to the AMD site to look for a driver update i cannot find one for the AMD Radeon Vega 8 graphics card (It is the only drop-down option available for display adaptors) I have gone into device manager and updated my driver through right clicking and selecting the option to search the internet for an update however this hasn't helped.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have no clue what else to try.

..............and it has told me that my driver is out of date

I would expect that a new computer would have fairly recent drivers installed. Are you sure you can trust that message?

.........however when going to the AMD site to look for a driver update................

Your first port of call should be the Acer support website. Hopefully you'll find a more recent driver there. Good luck.

Have had a look at the site here (hope the link works) and selected APU and shows this,

It leads confusingly to Adrenalin Edition 18.8.1 File Size 318 MB Release Date 8/17/2018.

Don't know if this helps as I've always found AMD's APUs drivers site confusing.

I agree with Secret-Squirrel .

It appears that it was the audio driver that was having issues but an update has fixed the error message. Thanks for the help
