Installing graphics card driversGraphics cards only perform properly if they have a hardware vendor supplied driver (not system built-in driver) installed correctly. It may happen that remnants of a previous installation interfere with the current driver installation. If you experience display issues with the drivers listed below, please "Clean-install" the driver again. "Clean-install" means removing all previous driver files before installing a new driver. Both Nvidia and AMD provide "Clean-install" options with their driver installers. In rare cases where vendor's uninstall operation is not possible, there are several tools that can help, like AMD's AMD Clean Uninstall Utility, third party tools like Driver Cleaner , Driver Fusion or gaming community's popular DDU Display Driver Uninstaller. Such tools should only be used as the last resort for troubleshooting.
Graphics card drivers for laptopsBoth Nvidia and AMD provide driver support for dedicated graphics cards on laptops. There are still laptop vendors (especially for legacy/end-of-life-support laptops) that provide their own driver support. If you are experiencing display issues with such laptops, and your vendor does not offer you a driver update, you might try - at your own risk - to tweak a desktop driver to work on your laptop. Note, that this is obviously not encouraged by your laptop supplier: FLEM ATI Radeon Legacy Modder / Nvidia legacy laptop drivers. Nowadays, laptops vendors are using the standardized drivers provided by chipset manufacturers.
Recommended graphics cards for laptopsThere are professional cards available for workstation laptops, such as the Nvidia Quadro and Radeon Pro, that slightly under-perform from their desktop counterparts. We have also good experiences with most of the dedicated Nvidia's GeForce cards, somewhat middling experience with AMD/ATI cards, and very bad experience with on-board (integrated) Intel graphics cards. Definitely avoid the latter at the moment. Although integrated graphics cards (iGPU) are gradually improving in terms of performance, still perform quite badly for 3D demanding applications like ARCHICAD. At the moment, AMD's Ryzen processors with integrated Vega 10 & Vega 8 graphics processors perform significantly better than the rest of iGPU solutions and on par with Nvidia's low ended dedicated GPU line (MX series).
