This used to be doable, not necessarily easy but doable. After uninstalling with DDU, I went back to the 2019 Q1 feb5 drivers and the option was there to switch, but it wouldn't connect to AMD to check for drivers. Then then next day the switch option is completely missing. Do any of the more recent drivers support switching? How can I get the Adrenaline drivers installed?

Thanks but it's still not working. I read the part where they no longer use the 'driver switch' option, but when I install the new drivers they just automatically go to the pro drivers even though they say 'Adrenalin'.

"
Please note that the following gaming features will not be available when using AMD Radeon™ Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition software with AMD Radeon™ Pro graphics cards:
  • Enhanced Sync, Performance Monitoring, Radeon™ Chill, Radeon™ Game Advisor, Radeon™ Overlay, Radeon™ Settings Advisor, Radeon™ WattMan, Upgrade Advisor
So they disabled all that, so there is no point in using the Adrenalin drivers anyway.

I do wish someone would mod the Vega 64 bios to work with the frontier and 16gb or mod the Frontier bios and make it id the card as a Vega64.

I reflashed my vega to find that out a while back, overclocking doesn't work either and well , it's back to normal anyway.

I used an 8Gb frontier bios.
