mXDriver 16.9.1 Reloaded – with Vulkan support and signed

This is a re-release of mXDriver 16.9.1 with working Vulkan support and it is also signed now. As mXDriver 16.9.2 and 16.10.1 have issues with Vulkan this version is considered the best when it comes to mXDriver’s Vulkan support. As it is signed now you don’t need Testsigning mode anymore.

Adding Vulkan support is a bit tricky because there has to be made many changes especially inside the INF file. In the future I’d like to create a tool which does these changes so you won’t need to download the driver here anymore just the tool. But this will only happen if I have more time, maybe in the holidays.

For prerequisities and installation details please see the mXDriver Howto.

    • Hugo,
      Your card is the M390 i see. This has no support even officially from Apple in their Bootcamp drivers, so unfortunately it is virtually impossible for modified drivers to do the same for your card. AMD also have no mention of this card in the INF file. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

      • Hi,

        F!ck AMD with “special” AMD GPU :/

        • Hugo i’m currently looking into the issue of the M390 not working properly and I think I may have found a solution, I will be implementing the code tomorrow. I was wondering if you would be willing to help me test it out?

  1. Hi Joe,

    Thanks for providing this incredible service to the Mac community. I just discovered your drivers and installed mXDriver 16.9.1 Reloaded however Crimson seems unable to open Radeon Additional Settings. I am using my iMac (5K, Late 2014, M290X) with a Club 3D Mini DisplayPort 1.2 to HDMI 2.0 UHD (CAC-1170) adapter connected to a Sony X810C UHD TV. mXDriver makes it possible to output 4K at 60 Hz and I would also like to create a custom resolution of 1080p at 120 Hz yet am unable to figure out how to make this work. Can I do that in Radeon Additional Settings or do I need additional software? Thanks again!

    • Hi Dean,

      if you, or somebody else, have problems with the Radeon menu you can follow Ronclis Howto which is pretty straightforward. This also helped me in the past.

      • Thanks for your reply, Joe. You are caring, a gifted developer, and I am so grateful you are sharing your skills with Mac enthusiasts like me. What is Ronclis Howto and where can I find it?

        • Sorry Dean, had made a mistake linking it. I adjusted my comment you can find the link there now.

          • The tip from Ronclis doesnt fixes the issue with missing extended Radeon Settings 🙁

  2. Many, many thanks for your work! One hint: In your installation instructions is a important step missing. After installing your Certificate a reboot is needed – otherwise the installation end with “Setup finished unsuccessfull”. But after a reboot the Installer completes his work with “Setup finished sucessfully”.

  3. Anyone getting the iMac late 2015 R9M395X brightness control with this one?
    Works fine… all good, but no brightness controls over the Mac itself.

    The output to TV in 1080p is perfect BTW.


  4. Thanks Joe for your hard work! I just played the Doom demo with Vulkan and had 90+ FPS @ 1080P Ultra setting. All I can say is WOW. Let says AMD/Apple drivers were big disappointment with this game like 25-40 FPS. If need community help for anything on these drivers let us know. Anyway with this driver and 16.10.1 I had some problems with Deus Ex Mankind Divided with DX12(not work 16.9.1 to even start the game get app stopped working.) or beta DX12 Multi GPU(crashed on 16.10.1 or odd message about hard were not meet the requirements at graphic settings, sorry didn’t write it down). Anyone else having issues with this game in DX12? I’m not to worried DX11 still works. Anyway it’s very hard to tell were the problem is at this point. Just putting it out there.

    • Latest Deus E Mankind Divided patch fixed the DX12 issues. Also the beta DX12 multi gpu double the high and average fps. You rock Joe!

      • Glad to hear that! 🙂

        Got new mXDriver version in the pipeline which will be released today, it will have support for Battlefield 1 and Vulkan and is based on AMD’s Radeon Crimson 16.10.2.

  5. Ok update here… And just like Aaron, man, I get insane frame rates at ultra!
    This is sooooooo dam fine.

    About the brightness, I rebooted in OSX, put it to the max, rebooted to Windows – TADAM!
    Brightness just follow the last setting from OSX. Sooooo just saying for others if you guys wondered.

    Simple –

    So many thanks for having this work done.
    I feel like I’m finally using my machine at its limits.


  6. I’m sorry if my question sounds noob… but will these drivers work if I’m still running Windows 8.1?

  7. I bought my nMP in Dec 2013, and I’ve always been really disappointed with my FirePro D300s in windows. Crashy, graphics problems, and really quite slow. Apple has NEVER even attempted to keep the bootcamp drivers up to date.

    I finally found your website today, and it’s literally solved every issue I have in Windows with my graphics. What a god send. You are amazing, thank you sir. Apple sucks, you ROCK.

    Your 16.9.1 Reloaded is working great on my nMP. Thanks for creating such a easy to follow installation complete with signed certificates.

    • Vulkan support in the driver is enabled by default but in most games you need to enable it too. Regarding Doom, it runs in OpenGL 4.5 by default. So if you like to run it with Vulkan you have to switch to Vulkan in Doom’s Advanced Settings.

  8. I am using an iMac 27″ Late 2014 AMD R9 m290X and I am still having the same problem, Code 43 error. I have tried both the 16.9.1 Reloaded and the latest 16.11.1 mXDrivers but still the same. Does anyone else having the same problem?
