    What are you talking about? It's supported but it's just disabled

    I want to just break my silence and thank immensely for sharing this driver. It works really good for me on Vega 56 and Win10 20h2. No tweaks on system aside of MSMG Toolkit pre-debloated OS install and a new PSU. I can actually run games and use radeon overlay without it stuttering - maybe the UWP overlay is lighter. I'm just really happy. I know Vega is old, but i'm glad i can make use of it now. I kept installing latest driver from AMD website and it always ended up with something not being so stable. So thank you. From the bottom of my heart
    Edit: The only thing is the appx doesnt install on 20h2, but if you have windows update working, it will grab UWP Radeon Settings for you and this is the way it worked. I installed it over the 2020 Windows Update driver and no problems so far.

    As @Krteq mentioned above, by no support usually means not enabled.

    We shouldn't mix things up. If amd confirms it's ready for more gpus it shall be enabled within next drivers.

    Drivers downloaded via Windows Update/Ms Store MUST pass WHQL certification program.

    Hello,

    up to now I used standard drivers only (usually the Recommended branch from AMD's website). I saw these here on the forum and tried them on my desktop with RX550, and they work very good. Also UWP app is lighter on resources than the full package. But I wonder

    - where they do come from, are they modded (which I do not like much) or are they official drivers?
    - why does not AMD offer these drivers on their webpage, too?
    - how they can be updated, I need not update that frequently but will here be new version in the future?

    Thanks

    Yes they are official. They come through Windows Update with the Windows Insider Beta Channel (not sure if the same version in on the Dev and RP channel).

    "Integer scaling" doesn't work properly if "Metrics Overlay" is enabled.

    Thank you very much for confirmation. These drivers work very well on my RX550, and because of their quality, I installed them also on my Ryzen 3200U notebook and there they also work smoothly. I appreciate the lighter footprint and still important functions can be set well.

    AMD should consider to provide these UWP drivers at their website, too. At least several times a year.

    I had to resort to this driver to fix some stuttering in a few games. Was minor but CoD - Cold War would have the occasional stutter. Sometimes I'd get the menu glitch where it wouldn't go past 20-23ish FPS. Was an odd glitch.

    Clocks are the same! I can clock to 2750mhz core just fine!

    I don't see any bad side effects of this driver at all. Good to go with this set.

    Windows 10 Build 21359.co currently running and it's solid.

    Nice, it's downloading right now.

    I wonder, is there a new driver too in the insiders beta channel?

    I just updated to the brand new 21364.1 build. I'm still with 21.4.1. How can I check for the new driver from Windows Updates?

    Should be under "View optional updates" in Windows Update.

    I could check as I have a HDD with Insider beta channel installed, but I am Low Level formatting a client's HDD right now and can't reboot to that Windows install.

    To be honest, I don't think there's going to be a new driver this soon, but, could be wrong.
