    AMD Radeon Graphics Card driver for Ubuntu 18.04.3

    I am new ubuntu user and using ubuntu 18.04.3. I wonder if there is any driver is installed for my dedicated graphics card AMD radeon HD 8670M by default in ubuntu 18.04.3. If not how can I get one which will support the card on the mentioned version of ubuntu.
    The command $ lspci -nn | grep -E 'VGA|Display' returned the following:
    Code:
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller [8086:0166] (rev 09)01:00.0 Display controller [0380]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Sun XT [Radeon HD 8670A/8670M/8690M / R5 M330 / M430 / Radeon 520 Mobile] [1002:6660]

    parag-93; Hello

    Let's look for a digital device:
    Code:
    lspci -k | grep -iEA5 'vga|3d'
    And to see if a driver is loaded:
    Code:
    sudo lshw -C display
    on the way to help
    THE current(cy) in Documentation:

    The drivers for both your Intel and AMD devices are already included with nothing extra that needs to be installed. The AMD side for older devices defaults to the older "radeon" driver, but there is a newer "amdgpu" driver with newer features like vulkan support. You can read a bit more about the differences, and how to enable amdgpu, here.

    I tried to install both amdgpu-pro-18.20-673703-ubuntu-18.04.tar.xz and amdgpu-pro-19.10-785425-ubuntu-18.04.tar.xz. But in both cases, the PC failed to boot after installation. Is there any supported AMD gpu for my model?
