AMD Ryzen 5 3500U Drivers & Review

Posted on 134 views

AMD Ryzen 5 3500U is a mobile SoC  It combines four Zen+ cores (8 threads) clocked at 2.2 – 3.8 GHz with a Radeon RX Vega 8 graphics card with 8 CUs (512 Shaders) clocked at up to 1200 MHz. Specified at 15 Watt TDP, the SoC is intended for thin mid-range laptops.

The Picasso SoCs use the Zen+ microarchitecture with slight improvements that should lead to a 3% IPS (performance per clock) improvements. Furthermore, the 12nm process allows higher clock rates at similar power consumptions.

The integrated dual-channel memory controller supports up to DDR4-2400 memory. As the features of the Picasso APUs are the same compared to the Raven Ridge predecessors, we point to our Raven Ridge launch article.

AMD states that the Picasso APUs are about 8% faster than the predecessors. Therefore, the Ryzen 5 3500U should be ahead the Ryzen 5 2500U (2 – 3.6 GHz) and nearly on par with the Ryzen 7 2700U (2.2 – 3.8 GHz).

Installing Ryzen Software

Ensure that any existing AMD graphics driver on the system is removed before installing a new driver package. Performing a complete uninstall ensures a clean system and can help reduce issues or conflicts that may occur on new installations.

If you agree to the terms, select either Accept and Express Install or Accept and Custom Install to move on to the next stage of installation or click on X to quit and exit to the Desktop.

Accept and Express Install – Installs only default components included in the driver package. Radeon ReLive and other optional components are not installed.

Accept and Custom Install – Provides a list of core and optional components included in the driver package and allows the user to manually select items to be included in the installation. Radeon ReLive install option will be presented for eligible systems near the end of the installation process.

Once the installation begins, the AMD Software Installer will attempt to detect your AMD graphics product.

After the detection phase is complete, the following screens and prompts presented will be based on the selected installation type.

Express Install AMD Software

This installation type should install all core software and driver components in the default folder location, C:\Program Files\AMD\. The installation process begins immediately after selecting Accept and Express Install and requires minimal user interaction.

Once the installation has successfully completed, the final screen should provide Restart Now and/or Close options, as shown in the example below:

How To Install AMD









Restart Now will restart the system and Close will exit to the Desktop. If a system restart is not required, then only the Close option will be available. If one or more components were not installed or the installation was interrupted, the final screen should provide the options shown in the example below:


Report Issue opens the AMD Issue Reporting Form using the default web browser. The AMD Issue Reporting Form can be used to provide feedback on the installation issue. The system must be connected to the internet otherwise, the page will not be displayed.

View Log opens the installation log file (Report.xml) using the default web browser. The log file contains details about the graphics hardware and software components installed. The Report.xml file can also be found in the folder: C:\Program Files\AMD\CIM\Reports\

Restart Now will restart the system and Close will exit to the Desktop. If a system restart is not required, then only the Close option will be available.
