AMD only fixed that recently. They were launched October 2017. The change to the drivers only occurred early March 2019. Nearly 1.5 years of poor driver support.

You do realize that Nvidia still doesn't provide unified drivers for it's custom laptop solutions correct? Just pointing out the hypocrisy.

They appear to list their main notebook GPUs.
https://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

"As part of the NVIDIA Notebook Driver Program, this is a reference driver that can be installed on supported NVIDIA notebook GPUs. However, please note that your notebook original equipment manufacturer (OEM) provides certified drivers for your specific notebook on their website. NVIDIA recommends that you check with your notebook OEM about recommended software updates for your notebook. OEMs may not provide technical support for issues that arise from the use of this driver."

If you mean "custom laptop solutions" as in HP buys reduced shader versions of the 1660 and calls it a 1550, then yeah, HP supports it.

Maybe there's something I don't understand.

Say what you want, I've owned AMD cards in the past and always keep an eye on best bang for the buck when it comes to graphics cards. So I'm not talking out of my a**. It's been my experience Nvidia typically releases drivers BEFORE a game is released - and are 95% of the time rock solid. AMD generally releases their drivers AFTER a game is released, and not always optimized the best.

So getting a driver a day early is worth 30% of the performance?.....
