OK, I've risked it all for F21. Previously I was on F19 and all was working fine except it messed up my USB ports meaning they wouldn't recognise or tether my phone. With F21 that is fixed, no problems with graphics drivers, running latest Adrenaline 19.8.1 downloaded straight from AMD. I have of course lost the 1GB V-Ram allocation, down to 256 MB, which means nothing except I now have 768MB more ram for general use. Another annoying side effect of the BIOS update was my sign in options of PIN and facial recognition had to be reset.

Updated yesterday, had a little problem with display brightness stuck at minimum after every shutdown, now updated video driver and seem that the problem is solved.
No change in performances but pretty sure that it produces less heat.
With F19 the fan was on for more time and at higher speed in web browsing, now with same load it starts only at low speed and for shorter time

Well hail hail some of the old gang is here, As we all can see F21 didn't appear to break anything. Mines been stable since AMD started to support the chip even in F20. Only took them over a year. No problems seems to be 100 percent stable. I don't use it much at all, too many bad feelings when I think of all the lost time spent fighting with Amd and HP..I could sell it but not going to. I keep it only to remind me that Amd will always find a way to cut their own throat.... I will NEVER buy any future AMD or HP product .. have a good day

So many boring, tedious moaners here. This is an amazing laptop and anyone who knows how to install drivers through device manager should have had very few issues with the graphics, Ryzen mobile teething problems aside. Good luck finding another make of laptop as elegant, feature-packed and trouble-free as this for the money.
