How to Update AMD Drivers

Methods to Update AMD Drivers

AMD Radeon Software: Simplicity First

If Installed: If you already have AMD’s Radeon software installed open it.

Check for Updates: Look for a Drivers & Software tab or a similar section. There should be a clear indication if an update is available.

Download and Install: If available click the update button and let the software handle the installation process.

AMD Website: Manual Download

**Navigate to AMD: ** Visit the AMD driver download page (https://www.amd.com/en/support).

Specify Your Card: Select your product type (Graphics or CPU), series, specific model and operating system. Click Submit.

Get the Driver: Download the latest driver package available (usually listed at the top).

Run the Installer: Execute the downloaded installer and follow the on screen prompts.

Alternative (Less Common) Methods

Device Manager:

Right-click on the Start Menu and choose Device Manager. Expand the Display Adapters section and right click on your AMD card.

Select Update driver and then choose Search automatically for drivers. Note: This method is less reliable for the latest versions.

Third-Party Update Utilities (Use with Caution)

Programs Exist: There are tools like Driver Booster or Snappy Driver Installer that can scan your system and offer updates for a wide range of hardware including AMD drivers.

Proceed Carefully: Exercise caution with these tools as they sometimes recommend outdated or beta drivers that can cause issues rather than fix them.

Research First: If you decide on this path thoroughly research the reputation of the software and make sure it has a strong track record of identifying the correct AMD drivers.

Important Things

Clean Installs: AMD’s software often offers a Clean Install option. This removes old drivers before the update helpful for preventing conflicts.

Compatibility Check: Make sure the latest driver is compatible with your specific card on AMD’s website.
