Upgrading from AMD gpu to an NVIDIA gpu.

No, chipset drivers are separate from video drivers.

So I’m upgrading from an rx580 to an rtx 2060 super and was wondering how to uninstall the amd graphics drivers without uninstalling the chipset drivers. I have a Ryzen 5 3600 and have the chipset drivers, but every tutorial I watch online is with an Intel processor... please help.

You want to download DDU and use that to remove your current Radeon driver (follow the readme included with the download, it's pretty straight forward), and then download and install the latest driver from the GeForce website.

 

Are you set on upgrading now to a 2060S though? Next-gen GPUs are coming out in a few months, so if anything, you might see a lot more good deals on RTX 2000 cards on the used market popping up soon.

Use ddu and wipe the amd drivers and download the  Nvidia ones. Though the 580 is enough for now I would say. Wait for ampere and big Navi, the 580 is decent for now imo.

Yeah I got a good deal on a 2060 Super from evga. Got it for, I think it was, $350. Couldn’t really pass that deal up. But yeah I’ve watched a bunch of videos and see people saying use DDU or people saying just use the uninstaller amd has for the adrenaline.

Using DDU is ideal, because it actually removes every last bit of the installed driver(s).
