Vulkan support and no Testsigning Mode anymore – mXDriver 16.9.2!

After a lot of work and testing I managed to get Vulkan working which was already experimental in mXDriver 16.9.1. As more and more users were requesting that mXDriver works without Testsigning Mode enabled because some games use Battleye anti-cheat software which does not allow games to run in Testsigning Mode I looked deeper into this matter. mXDriver 16.9.2, which is based on AMD’s Radeon Crimson 16.9.2, comes with a public Code Signing Certificate which allows, after installation of this certificate, to install mXDriver without being in Testsigning Mode (for details please see the attached README.TXT).

mXDriver 16.9.2 driver mod supports all current AMD based Mac GPUs (including M390, M390X, M395 and M395X GPUs) in one easy to install driver package! To see all supported GPUs please see below.

Changelog

  • updated mXDriver to Radeon Crimson 16.9.2
  • Vulkan support
  • public Code Signing Certificate attached –> no Testsigning Mode needed anymore
  • performance boost of approx. 35 % with dual D700 in Unigine Valley (Extreme HD) compared to AMDs latest official Boot Camp driver

Finally, good news for M395X users

Last week mXDriver 16.8.2 was released in an M395X Alternate Edition. According to the feedback of the community this edition seems to be the first working Boot Camp Driver Mod for AMD’s Apple branded M395X! Also it seems to solve some of the M390X problems.

So if you do own a M395X or M390X and are not happy with AMD’s/Apple’s lame driver support for Windows Boot Camp environments give mXDriver 16.8.2 M395X Alternate Edition a try and please leave feedback. Without feedback it’s impossible to improve mXDriver. Thanks guys and have fun! Read more Finally, good news for M395X users

Experimental M395X support: mXDriver 16.8.2

mXDriver 16.8.2 is available in three flavours. The usual version and two versions specifically for M395X systems! Yes, you read it right, experimental M395X support is nearing thanks to our user zoda who found a way to merge mXDriver and Apple Boot Camp Driver to make M395X support available. As I don’t own a M395X I cannot test nor confirm it’s working but first reports are quite positive.

M395X users should try M395X Edition One first, if that’s not working please use the M395X Alternate Edition. All other users please use the usual mXDriver. It is very possible that it is not working properly or even doesn’t work at all therefore we need your feedback to make it work (better) in the future! Please don’t hesitate to leave feedback, best with device ID attached.

mXDriver 16.8.2 supports AMD Graphics powered Mac Pros (2013+). Retina iMac and MacBook Pro (2015+) support is currently experimental and might not work! To see all supported GPUs please see listing below.

mXDriver 16.8.2 was made specifically for Mac users running Windows in a Boot Camp environment therefor mXDriver support for Non-Mac-Graphics is limited. Installing mXDriver on systems other than Apple systems is NOT RECOMMENDED.

Currently only FirePros (D300, D500 and D700) seem to work properly other Apple branded GPUs are experimental.
