I installed the drivers above for Vega M GH Graphics on my 8i7HVK (two weeks old) and wanted to let anyone reading this know that I'm pretty sure the release above has some issues. Specifically, after installing from the link above, my lightning fast PC would periodically 'stutter' on mouse movements or keyboard typing, e.g., typing a sentence and looking at the screen, every fifth or sixth word wouldn't complete immediately as I was typing, 'stuttering' for half a second, then catching up. Same for mouse movements, resizing relocating windows, etc.
I tried rebooting a few times and made sure that all of the AMD settings were reset to 'default', but the issue persisted. Eventually rolled back the drivers and everything is working fine again.
Intel's own Driver and Support Assistant is not helpful at all; AFTER ROLLING BACK THE DRIVERS ABOVE to my previous version, it's telling me :
Latest version: 25.20.14011.5005 Installed Version: 24.20.11026.2001 (Update available) Installs the Radeon™ RX Vega M Graphics Driver for Windows® 10 64-bit for the Intel® NUCs NUC8i7HxKx (18.9.1).
...but 18.9.1 IS the package that I already have installed. Unsurprisingly, if I try to download and install via the DSA the install software tells me that its already installed.
First, I don't know why the DSA is telling me there's an update, then directing me to the exact version that I already have installed. But more importantly, I'm not sure that the version above (18.12.2) has been adequately tested because if it were, then a) wouldn't the DSA tool show that its available? and b) I don't think that I'd be experiencing the issues that I did after I installed it.
Would be interested in others' experience if you decide to install 18.12.2.
I just compared both download pages and there are some notable differences. The page recommended by the DSA tool (v18.9.1, https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28194 ) lists the download as 'Latest' and:
Radeon™ RX Vega M Graphics Driver for Windows® 10 64-bit for Intel® NUC Kit NUC8i7HNK, NUC8i7HVK
The page (I believe incorrectly) recommended by Intel Support (v18.12.1) above lists the download as 'Latest' and:
Radeon™ RX Vega M Graphics
and in the section entitled:
"This download is valid for the product(s) listed below:"
The first page lists specific NUC kits, including the 8i7HVK. The second only lists Intel processors with discrete Radeon cards.
My Conclusion: Support is sending us to a version of the Radeon drivers (18.12) that are not intended to be implemented in NUC kits.
Fortnite is running now. Thanks
Still wondering why the NUC driver is 160MB bigger, do I don't need that? Why is Intel offering it then?
I would like to just know that a driver for the nuc8i7hvk is still in the works. I'm getting nervous that I'm going to be stuck on 18.9.1 for quiet a while.
Not interested in a generic or beta driver, i would like a stable release soon that fixes relive audio and display ports not functioning and a few others.
Just say we are working on it or something "expect a release in a month" etc etc.
