AMD Has But To Provide Official Driver Help For Phoenix APUs That includes RDNA 3 iGPU

AMD’s model new Ryzen 7040 “Phoenix” APUs for laptops that includes the RDNA 3 iGPU are but to obtain official graphics driver help.

AMD’s Phoenix Laptops Have not Acquired Official RDNA 3 GPU Drivers Since Their Launch Virtually A Month Again

The AMD Phoenix APU lineup referred to as the Ryzen 7040 laptop computer processors was launched this 12 months at CES. The lineup was initially meant to launch in March however obtained delayed to April and solely began delivery globally by the top of Might with some laptop computer producers but to introduce their laptops.

Now, we’re virtually a month in because the availability of the primary Ryzen 7040 APU-powered laptops however AMD has but to supply official driver help for the brand new RDNA 3 iGPU which is a little bit of a priority contemplating that some early customers have already discovered points with the laptops together with one the place the GPU would enter sleep mode and will not recuperate till the laptop computer is restarted.

However having no official driver help even after months of delays leaves a foul mark for buyer help. AMD’s official help web page, the “Ryzen Processors with Radeon Graphics” tab solely covers Ryzen 7045 “Dragon Vary” and the older Rembrandt, Cezanne & the entry-level APU lineup codenamed Mendocino. These chips are based mostly on the older RDNA 2 and Vega GPUs so them getting driver help this quick should not be a shock. In the meantime, AMD’s model new RDNA 3 GPUs for laptops do not have this sort of help.

Moreover, the one laptops obtainable in the intervening time characteristic the Ryzen 7040HS collection and solely the highest SKUs. The remainder of the SKUs and the Ryzen 7040U collection are but to be made obtainable.

AMD has a number of Phoenix options out with Mini PCs that includes the identical RDNA 3 GPUs obtainable since mid of Might and people too have not acquired any official driver help but. The entire driver situation with RDNA 3 has been wonky with AMD leaving out RDNA 2 customers for a number of months to concentrate on RDNA 3 GPUs on the desktop entrance and now laptops/Mini PCs with RDNA 3 GPUs being overlooked in the dead of night. We hope that laptop computer customers do get some help within the coming weeks.

Regardless of all of that, the AMD Phoenix APUs do ship some nice built-in graphics efficiency on all platforms together with handheld consoles which has been demonstrated by the likes of ASUS’s ROG Ally console. A correct and optimized driver will solely carry this efficiency additional up.
