How can I change the video-linux driver to xf86-video-amdgpu?

Hello, i am a new garuda user (KDE Dr460nized). I have an amd ryzen 5400g APU and I want to change the video-linux driver to xf86-video-amdgpu because I have low performance. my screen does not show me the fps at which my pc runs games. I tried the garuda setting manager but it only shows me the video-linux video-modesetting and video-vesa drivers. How can I install xf86-video-amdgpu since I have read that it is the best for my integrated gpu

IDK, did you search?

You will need to disable the inbuilt radeon drivers and start the amdgpu ones through the kernel boot parameters

Scroll down to the SI AND CK enabling part. AFAIK you apu is a GCN2 based apu so it will be the CIK line

"video-linux" literally includes "xf86-video-amdgpu"...
Check what kernel driver is being used via inxi -G. If it doesn't use amdgpu, you'll have to take a look at @regularCoder's suggestion.

What does that link have to do with anything >.>

thank you very much for your help. you are already using the amdgpu driver. although this did not solve my problem at all. because I don't see the smooth image but the frame rate is apparently fine. I will try disabling the vsinc options of my monitor and my pc
