AMD Radeon Software is a suite of drivers that are designed to work together to provide excellent performance and stability. AMD Radeon Software is different from other driver installers in that it doesn’t require any 3rd party software in order to install the driver. This is because AMD’s drivers are built in-house and are not tied to any 3rd party software.
Unluckily for some, there is a downside to this. In order for AMD’s drivers to work with your hardware, you will need to install them through the AMD driver installer.
If you don’t have an AMD GPU and you don’t have access to the AMD driver installer, you will need to use a 3rd party software such as DDU (disc drive uninstaller) or Revo Uninstaller to remove the AMD software.
In this tutorial, we will be going over the steps on how to install the latest AMD Radeon Software Drivers on your PC, even if you don’t have an AMD GPU.
Download the AMD Radeon Software
The first step is to download the AMD Radeon Software. The AMD Radeon Software can be found under this link: Here
The latest AMD Radeon Software drivers are available for all of the current AMD GPUs, including the AMD Radeon RX 500 Series, the AMD Radeon RX 200 Series, the AMD Radeon Pro Duo, the AMD FirePro W series, and the AMD FirePro S series.
Install the AMD Radeon Software
Once you have the AMD Radeon Software downloaded, it’s time to install it. The easiest way to do this is through the AMD driver installer. The AMD driver installer can be found under this link: Here
Make sure to select the specific GPU you want to install the driver on.
Once the AMD Radeon Software has been installed, it will be listed under “AMD Catalyst Control Center” in the Control Panel.
Reboot when prompted to install the driver
When prompted to reboot your system after installing the AMD driver, click “Yes”. This will restart your computer and launch the AMD driver installation process again.
Once the computer has rebooted, the installation process will begin. When the computer has finished restarting it will give you a popup in the lower-right corner that the driver installation has completed and it will give you a timestamp. Do not close this popup. Instead, let it sit in the tray and you will see another popup shortly after with the driver version number.
If you’re having issues with the AMD driver installer, you can try using the non-official AMD driver installer .
If you are having trouble removing the AMD driver, you can try using the free AMD Uninstaller. Just make sure to install it before you try to remove the driver with it.
DDU (AMD Uninstaller)
If you don’t have the ability to use an installer or if you want to completely remove the AMD driver, you can try using DDU.
This is the easiest way to completely remove the AMD driver. Just make sure to install it before you try to remove the driver with it.
For some people, there will always be bugs and issues with every single driver release. This is especially true for the first driver release after a new architecture is released. The same goes for the latest Radeon Software release.
That being said, the AMD Radeon Software is still one of the best suites of drivers for gaming on the PC. It’s easy to use, provides excellent performance, and comes with a lot of great features.
If you have ever wanted to try out an older AMD GPU, or install the driver on a newer GPU that doesn’t have an open Crossfire or SLI configuration, the AMD Radeon Software is the way to go.
If you have issues with the AMD driver, don’t worry, there is a detailed AMD Driver Guide that will help you through everything you need to know about installing and running the drivers.
