But this is a sony and my experience is that you use the preinstalled factory OS and it all works.

If it doesn't then you call Sony to arrange for repair.

I can't find what failed here but there are folk that are looking like you did for controls to the GPUs and don't find them. It's not missing as there are none. This system is supposed to be fully automatic as long as you run the stock installed OS.
