I have a hp pavilion laptop which has switchable graphics . It has a A8 6410 (with r5 graphics) and an R7 m260.

As far as I know this setup should support mantle. However when I enable mantle on any games it says my graphics card has crashed. Then it recovers but I get artifacts and the screen flickers (lines and incorrect colours) until I restart.

Does my setup not support mantle or am I don't something wrong.

(I have all the latest drivers)

"Please n​ote that notebooks based on AMD PowerXpress™ and AMD Enduro technologies are not currently supported. Support for these configurations will be added in a later AMD Catalyst™ driver release.​"


and from the m260 specs.

"The R7 series also supports automatic graphics switching between the integrated GPU and discrete GPU. Called Enduro, the technology supersedes AMD's Dynamic Switchable Graphics and is similar to Nvidia's Optimus. Furthermore, the M265 can directly support multiple monitors using Eyefinity Technology if Enduro is disabled."


Therefore, since your graphics chip uses Enduro, and Enduro isn't supported by Mantle, it won't work.
