  1. Awesome update – thanks Joe! The install went very smoothly on my M395X iMac, and I can now see the actual driver version installed from Device Manager.

  2. I’m getting an error from AMD Install Manager when installing 16.8.3 that says:

    “We are unable to find a driver for your system. No supported AMD hardware was detected.”

    I’d love to play Battlefield 1 Beta tonight. Any tricks to get it installed?
    I have the newest iMac with M395X. Many thanks!

    • Make sure you follow the instructions exactly on the Mx HowTo page, and you shouldn’t have an issue. Seeing as we both have pretty much the same iMac, you must’ve missed a step somewhere.

    • I have this same issue. Let me know if you found a fix please, have done all the steps on the how to correctly

  3. Any reason I can’t update to the latest version? Every iteration of your mxdriver updates I have tried have only installed the 16.300.2511.1003 version. I have a M370X. I did a clean wipe through DDU in safe mode and then running the setup found in the zipfile but it still only updates to 16.300.2511.1003, please help!

    • Did this work for you? I have a MacBook Pro with the M370X and was going to use the latest DDU to uninstall my current Boot Camp driver. Was curious if you had any issues so far?

      • I think it used to work a couple versions back but now every time I try to update it, it only updates to version 16.300.2511.1003. Running the DDU successfully uninstalls the current version I have but when I run the setup found in the zip file (and the setup for the other older versions), it only updates the graphics driver to that version which is really weird. Has anyone had success installing it for a m370x?

        • I ran the latest DDU and it rebooted into Safe Mode, it uninstalled the 15.3 Boot Camp driver, rebooted again. I ran the two commands at Administrator command prompt, then tried installing this MX Driver 16.8.3, but it fails to the install the AMD Display Driver. Everything else installs except the driver.

          You’re right though, it was reporting the version as 16.300.2511.1003.

          So I’d say no success for me as an owner of a 2015 MacBook Pro 15″ Retina with AMD Radeon R9 M370X. :-/

          • I have the same 2015 Macbook Pro 15″ Retina with AMD Radeon R9 M370X. I have 15.301.2101.0. When I run my AMD software and check for updates, it shows 2 updates. One is 16.7 and the other is some beta driver. When I try installing either one, I get a message that says there I have no supported AMD hardware. One would think it would only show updates for the hardware you have. Weird.

            My goal behind all of this is to run Halo 5: Forge. At launch it gives an error that my driver is not up to date. I get the option to close or continue. If I hit continue it automatically closes anyway.

  4. Does this work on a 2013 Mac Pro with the AMD D300 cards? Trying to play the Battlefield 1 beta as well 😀

  5. everything install except the Display Driver on my Mac Pro w/ d300 cards. The log just says Failed. Used DDU, ran both commands as administrator. Can anyone confirm it working on a 2013 nMP?

    • so I was able to finally get it installed but I had to install 16.8.1 first and then 16.8.3 on top of it. the issue with BF1 is that the entire ground textures jitter. It was worse in 16.8.1, better in 16.8.3. But the problem with 16.8.3 is that my FPS tanked down to 10. Unplayable. Anyone else having similar issues?

  6. I tried this and none of my games worked.
    1. Uninstall the old driver completely. Best is to use current version of Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU)!
    I did this first but I really didn’t know what I was doing it was recommended to run it in safe mode so I did then I chose I think it was -clean and uninstall option- was that right? And I let it do its thing. After the restart I went to step 2: Activate Testsigning via command line: bcdedit.exe -set testsigning on but i got a error about something was missing or could not be found? So I went to step 3 same error so I unzipped mXmod Driver
    and ran setup.exe. It installed but gaming evolved could not find the driver info. Thankfully DDU created a restore point so i did that. Where did i go wrong? I wish there was a video or pictures of step by step.

      • Thanks now that’s working but how do I install the driver itself? With all the stuff within the mXDriver-16.8.3-64Bit-Win10 folder what do i choose? There are 4 folders 3 .dlls and a setup.exe I ran the set up but that did not work it installed raptr and some tv app. There are also setups in bin64 folder is it one of those? Thanks.

        • No, it’s the setup.exe file you need to run. I’d try everything over from scratch.

          I’m averaging about 120 FPS in Battlefield 1 on high settings – it looks great! But it’s a beta so expect bugs.

          • I tried it again, fresh. I’m following all the steps. I ran the first setup.exe that I saw from the driver folder. Radeon Settings says no AMD graphics driver is installed. That is how I install the new driver just run that first setup.exe right? I did leave the cmd commands on also. Thanks for the help just not sure why this isn’t working for me.

          • Try this:
            1) Uninstall driver with DDU in safe mode.
            2) Reboot to normal mode.
            3) Run the 2 bcdedit commands as administrator.
            4) Run the setup.exe file.

            If this doesn’t work for you, I’m not sure what the problem is.

          • I got it installed 🙂 I didn’t know i had to reboot after the 2 bcdedit commands.
            it says the Driver Packaging Version is 16.30.2511.1003-160830a-306357E
            Is this right? I hope so cause that’s what it installed. Do I need to keep raptr and playstv installed? Thanks for all the feedback!

          • Congratulations it’s working! Yes, rebooting is essential.

            Driver version is the right one. Raptr and playstv is not needed you can go ahead and uninstall it.

  7. Hi. I have the MacPro with D700’s. The driver works fine (thanks for that) but, why I can not open the Additional Settings?? By clicking on it nothing happens… 🙁 sience the latest three versions the same

    • You mean the additional settings of the Radeon settings (via pressing right mouse button on desktop)? On my system this is working.
      Did you fully uninstall the driver and the accompanying AMD software prior installing the new version?

      • Yes absolutly that I mean! Sorry for my bad english… 😉 Yes I did it with the DDU tool in safe mode – tried it several times. But something it not delete properly what blocks this function… I reinstalled all versions of the Visual C++ without success. 🙁

        (sollte jemand Deutsch sprechen und mir helfen können, wäre das natürlich super! 🙂

  8. My iMac with 395 very good working!
    Today all day playing in Battlefield 1, this is amazing game!
    Thank you for your job, I very grateful for it !

  9. Battlefield 1 Beta says i have driver 15.201.2001 and it needs 16.20.1025. Anyone else have this problem?

  10. Joe – I’m curious… Everyone seems to have the 16.30.2511 version driver installed with the 16.8.3 mXDriver package. Was it intentional to use the older driver version in this latest package?

    • This is the correct version that AMD uses its not an older version just their numbering systems are different for the driver itself versus the driver + software versions.

  11. Hi all,

    I’m having an issue with Hyper-V on a 5K iMac 27″ (Late 2015) — when I enable it, it causes an INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE error and won’t boot normally even if I disable it. I’m not sure if you guys have any experience with that, or even if experimental drivers like this will have any effect one way or another, but do you guys know of any way that I can run emulators/virtualizations?

    Sorry if this is unrelated to gaming — I’m just curious if there’s anything experimental like this I can do to fix this issue, since Apple’s EFI firmware doesn’t seem to get updates very often.

  12. Hi, just what I was looking for, but the link doesn’t work. Please fix a working download link. Anyone.

  13. Hi,

    I ran through the installation process on my 2015 27″ 5K iMac and everything worked great, but every time I play a Youtube video or any flash-based video, a strange glitch flashes at the bottom left portion of the screen It only seems to go away after a reboot, although it does come back at a later time after I’ve restarted the computer. Would any of you kind folks happen to have any advice as to what I could do to remedy this issue?

    Thank you!

    • I have a late 2015 27″ iMac with the M395X GPU, and have experienced no such issues with this latest mXDriver.

    • I Have the same problem with an iMac 5k – R9 m290. It happen onl ywhen i play a Youtube/flash-based video… I don’t know what i can do.

    • Most likely a driver-specific issue. Some bugs will inevitably occur as a result of unofficial mapping of cards.

  14. Hi

    I followed the installation steps exactly and did not run into any problems. However according to apps such as GPU-Z and MSI Afterburner, I am on version 15.11 Instead of the latest 16.8.3.

    Does anyone know why?

    I am on the 15-in Retina MacBook Pro (mid-2015) with the R9 M370X.

  15. Joe your drivers do not support Vulcan at this present time by the looks of it. Any updates on its inclusion for future releases? We need to get this out to as many people as possible!

    • Hi Mat,

      I see that your modified drivers do have Vulkan support. Can you please outline the steps to get that working so that Joe can incorporate them as well, or people (like me) who’d like to roll out their own?

  16. Hi Seltaeb,
    I am happy to provide the method to do it but it is very lengthy as it involves adding lots and lots of lines of code to the old official apple drivers as opposed to just mapping graphics drivers. Whoever wants the exact process involved then please email me @ matd2100[at]gmail.com and I will put together the essay of what I’ve done to get it fully working.

  17. I got a Mac Pro with dual D500. Bootcamp with windows 8.1 – Can I use this one?
    Sorry – but I’m confused which one to use. Trying various without luck 🙁
