I would like to be able to run a Ryzen 5600G, an R9 280X and an S9150, all on one mother board. The PSU is beefy enough to do this. A query into AMD yielded this result:

Thank you for the e-mail.
Based on the inquiry, i understand that you are using multiple GPU on the same system and want to know if the driver work simultaneously.
No, the driver won't work together as all the 3 components requires different driver sets. If the system components meet the same driver set the there is possibility to work.
Thank you for contacting AMD.


For the 5600G I was using this driver: Adrenalin 22.11.2 Recommended (WHQL) (Win 10)
For the R9 280X, I proposed using this: Adrenalin 22.6.1 Recommended (WHQL) (Win 10)
For the Firepro S9150, I proposed using this: 21.Q1.1 (Win 7)

I'm not so sure they understood the question. I did say I wanted to use these 3 driver sets, and they did agree that 3 different driver sets were needed.

The motherboard is an ASUS TUF Gaming B550-PRO AMD AM4. The 280X is from 2013, the S9150 is from 2014, so not that far apart, time wise. The CPU is from 2021, so quite a bit newer.

I guess the question is, Is it possible to run these 3 on one Motherboard???

(I have since replaced the 5600G with a Ryzen 3 4100, and am running the 280x. But it sure would be nice to get more horsepower here!)

Anybody have any ideas?

TIA

I can't necessarily give you the answer to your problem, but I can tell you what I have and what I have running.

I have an AMD Ryzen7 4700G and I added a GTX 1050 Ti to it in Windows 10 and did nothing about drivers when I added the 1050. Apparently after a couple of reboots, Win10 loaded the necessary driver for the 1050 for me. It's running great now for about a week of so.

I also have a AMD FX8300 running with 2 Amd Radeon 560's. Apparently the one driver set just takes care of both of them.

One trick you might try, is to uninstall all your video drivers and reboot. Windows will more than likely find all of the necessary drivers for all of your cards.

If you happened to be running Linux, I'm sure Linux will also look for the missing drivers as well.
Good luck!!

You should be able to run the R9 280x and the 5600G together using the (Win10) Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 21.5.2 drivers (not the legacy version). That is the last one that supports the GCN and RX and integrated Vega graphics all at the same time. The Firepro is a Hawaii card - same guts as a 290x - so it might(?) work under that driver even if not officially. Alternatively the 280x might(?) work with the Firepro's driver (and there is a Win 10 version as well as Win7). I think you MIGHT fluke it lucky, but otherwise it probably will be using any 2 of the 3 that you have.

Good luck - hope you get a combination that works.
