  1. i got a nofitication of a newer driver on amd crimson,
    checked out your site, and mxdriver was already there!
    you rock man.

  2. Thanks again joe, been playing with a prototype mac, using these custom drivers have really helped to subdue the restart/freezes/and power downs, otherwise they still do happen, but these drivers are of increasing use.

  3. If anyone having the performance issue of using this driver for playing game The Division? my Macpro config with D500 with crossfire mode on, experience of dropping ftps from 6x sudden to 1x-2x.

  4. The most common fix ive found is turning crossfire off through the games application settings in firepro settings. Done it for overwatch and dark souls 3. Using the D700’s.

  5. Hi Will,

    Does it mean that you also having the drop ftps issue if enable crossfire mode on?

  6. Yea dropped fps have a very common tendency, with overwatch though with it on when I go full screen theres a huge amount of screen flashing, black white bars flickering. As well has anyone figured out something that allows for the graphic cards not to be freezing or restarting. I know thats really a hardware issue but maybe some fix. Have reset Pram and SMC but still to no avail.

  7. This update works great! Thank you mXDriver, But somehow i cant change the brightness of my macbook pro anymore. Anyone else having this issue?

    • Thank you for making these drivers, but my brightness keys do not work. Possible workaround?

  8. Does anyone have fixes or changes they’ve done to there Mac Pro 2013 that would counter the freezes, restarts and hangs? Would be much appreciated.

    • I also have sometimes a very unresponsive Windows on my nMP. It starts right after boot the only way is to reboot. Thought it is not driver related but as you also have it, hmmm…

  9. Hello,

    still cant use them on my M395X (imac Late 2015). It keeps crashing during installation of the drivers resulting in a black screen and a reboot of the system afterwards.

    Please help me.

    Thanks in advance



  10. hi, I’m using this on a D500 and it works fast and stable so far. Is it possible to disable testsigning after installation or does it stop the driver?

  11. 2015, Radeon 395mx, can install, after entering test mode, but constant reboot on restart. Drivers show up to be correct driver, but can only boot in safe mode…. frustrated…

  12. Hello Joe,
    Thanks for the awesome drivers. Got like 20+ fps boost in overwatch on the M370.

    I just logged on to bootcamp and my display color is really dark, even when I manually bring the bar up to the max. I’m not talking about the buttons on the keyboard, I know those are not working from previous comments.

    Any idea how to get my screen brighter?

    • Fixed – had to load OS X, up the brightness on there then restart.

  13. Hi,

    I’m unable to download the file from the website. Mega Chrome returns an error: “temporary error, retrying.”

    • I tried it, it worked. Please try it again, maybe it was a temporary issue.

  14. FIX: LCD brightness control not working:

    Go to Registry Editor (regedit.exe)

    Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{4d36e968-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}\0000
    Next, go find:


    Set to 0.

    ADDITIONAL STEP: In Device Manager, disable your video adapter and re-enable.
    Retest your LCD brightness settings.
