Finally… mXDriver 17.8.1

It took me quite some time to release a new version of mXDriver, sorry for my absence!. mXDriver 17.8.1 is based on AMD’s Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.8.1 and brings the usual optimizations from AMD (newly supported games and bugfixes) as well as support for Quake™ Champions Early Access and Agents of Mayhem. Vulkan support is also included and gives Doom a big fps boost. Please note: Newer versions of the Vulkan API (1.0.26+) don’t work with the Vulkan Stardust Demo although other applications like Doom work great in Vulkan mode.

If you have trouble running a Vulkan application, which ran with mXDriver 16.9.1 Reloaded (Vulkan API 1.0.21) or other older drivers please see the FAQ for help. Read more Finally… mXDriver 17.8.1

mXDriver 16.12.2 -New Year, New Release, New Year’s Pledge

Happy New Year to everyone out there! It’s been a while since the last release. This is because of too much work and too less spare time. Therefor I had to decide how to go on with mXDriver in 2017. The good part, mXDriver will also see new releases in 2017! But I need to reduce the amount of time invested in this (spare time) project, so I decided to only release for Windows 10 64-Bit from now on and skip support for older GPUs e.g. AMD’s Radeon HD 6770M. This helps keeping mXDriver alive. I hope those of you who are using pre-Windows 10 OSes or Radeon HD6770M are not to mad about it and might consider switching to Windows 10 64-Bit or are lucky to get a newer Mac.

So here it is 2017’s first release of mXDriver based on December’s Radeon Crimson ReLive Edition 16.12.2. mXDriver 16.12.2 brings the usual optimizations from AMD (newly supported games and bugfixes). Vulkan support is also included and gives Doom a big fps boost. Please note: Newer versions of the Vulkan API (1.0.26+) don’t work with the Vulkan Stardust Demo although other applications like Doom work great in Vulkan mode.
