Which graphics card on Edge 15?

2010-06-25, 12:19 PM

Hi all,

 

I'm having some issues with a 3d app and the graphics card on my Edge 15. I checked the display adapters from device manager and it tells me, it's an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 545v.

 

I went to Lenovo's support site to see if there are newer drivers, but there are no drivers for such a card. Instead the display drivers offered are for ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250.

 

How come? Is it the same card with a different name? What about using drivers directly from ATI - is it a good idea?

 

Thanks!

Hi wannabeartist!

 

You want the AMD M92 XTX Graphics from the driver matrix:

You're not crazy - when you browse for the Edge 15 on the support site, the Windows 7 version of that driver doesn't show up, but it is in the matrix. Always worth checking both!

USB-C: Just cos it fits don't mean it works.

Thanks,

 

I forgot, ATI is AMD these days...

 

 

Unfortunately, my current driver turned out to be the newest one, so it didn't fix my problem. Perhaps my 3d app is trying to do something too crazy for this card.
