Update AMD graphics drivers for Windows in Boot Camp

Learn how to download and install Windows graphics drivers in Boot Camp on Mac models that use AMD video cards.

If you use Boot Camp to run Windows on your Mac, you can find the latest AMD graphics drivers on AMD.com. First, make sure that your Mac is supported. Then determine what AMD driver version you have. If you don't have the current version, follow the steps to update.

Make sure your Mac is supported

You can find updated AMD driver packages for these Mac models:

  • MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015 and newer)*
  • iMac (Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, 2017)
  • iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2014 and newer)
  • Mac Pro (Late 2013)

The AMD driver package doesn't currently support iMac Pro. Please check back for updates.

*  If you have MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2018) with Radeon Pro Vega graphics, the latest AMD driver package is installed when you install Windows using Boot Camp. At this time, this MacBook Pro model doesn't require the update process detailed on this page.

Check your AMD graphics drivers version

Here's how to find out what version you have:

  1. Start your Mac in Windows.
  2. Open Radeon Settings by right-clicking on your desktop and selecting AMD Radeon Settings. You can also click the Radeon Settings icon in the System Tray, or select AMD Radeon Settings from the Programs menu.
  3. Go to System Tab > Software Tab.
  4. Look for the number that appears by Driver Packaging Version.

Compare your current AMD graphics drivers version to the latest version number on AMD.com in step 4 below.
