    Hello guys

    Maybe this is a stupid question, but this is my first iMac ever and oh god it's a great all-in-one pc. I got the basic iMac 5K with retina display.

    I got one important question. How can I actually update my Radeon R9 m290x video card? I went to the official site of AMD, but it seems it only supports windows systems. Is there any way to update this video card? Is it maybe supported in the update by Apple?

    Can someone please give me a clear explanation, if possible?

    Sorry for my english guys, I'm from Belgium. :)

    All updates, including the video drivers come through apple, so there's no way to update them, other then applying an update from Apple.

    Okay, thank you for the fast reply. This answer made it clearly now for me. This is an easy way in comparing with other computer brands that uses Windows. I had a lot trouble with updating the drivers manual for my video card on my previous computer.
