If you have read our recent Ryzen 2200G and 2400G reviews, you will have noticed that we mentioned the graphics processor that resides inside the APU is still driven by an older 2017 Crimson based driver. Over the past few weeks, I have received multiple emails from end users, complaining that the drivers have never been updated.
To get you guys some answers I reached out to AMD. Initially, when we received the APUs (February) we were told that the APUs would be added towards the latest driver builds. Many weeks, even months, have passed ever since release, and everybody who bought or has a Ryzen 3 2200G (review) / Ryzen 5 2400G (review) APU, still is using the same February driver. Since the graphics processor inside the APU is a really pretty one for budget gaming, it kind of is annoying to not receive GPU updates for support for the latest games, right? Earlier this week I contacted AMD, and while an official response is still out, we can now confirm that AMD is adding the new APUs towards the Adrenalin driver installer.
I've confirmed this two ways, but it's also confirmed now by AMD's Senior Product Manager, James Prior. And from there onwards the APUs can be easily supported with the current Radeon Software Adrenalin installs. Word is that Adrenalin APU support is going to happen as soon as this month already, however .. don't hold me to that statement though.
