Hi,

I have a question, if anyone can help me sff.

I have an AMD SAPPHIRE RX580 8GB running on a 4790K i7 that does not support hardware HEVC. I have IGPU enable to get hardware H264.

If i upgrade RX580 for a VEGA 56 8GB and turn off the IGPU, i can H264 and HEVC hardware?

Regards

I'm leaning towards the Vega card as well. It would be nice to know what the hardware encoding/decoding situation is with the Vega card.
I bought the Sapphire VEGA 56, just removed the RX580 and put the VEGA.

I left the IGPU enable for h264 and was immediately given HEVC by hardware. :)

SMBIOS 14,2, WEG + Lilu
