    Hello

    Before installing bootcamp and windows 10 on my brand new tbMBP, I would like to be sure that the driver issue has been fully solved.
    I don't see many alarming messages about that recently

    when installed, there is no risk that the "safe" Apple audio drivers might be replaced by "dangerous" drivers from Microsoft during windows update ?

    Thank you

    yes it is - but if you like, you can insert headphones into your mbp - just to be on the safe side :D

    thank you, I tried, but the headphones are too large for the 2,5 mm hole :D

    seriously : the idea is not bad, but I would like to have sound on speakers while playing with bootcamps

    thats bad :D then you have to buy some tomorrow :p

    well you will have sound - I mean, I just used it for the installation - after windows is installed you can unplug the headphones

    ah ok, thank you for the tip

    you mean that the headphones protect the speakers, as long as the adequate driver are installed, with no further risks for the MacBook. correct ?

    I received mine yesterday and installed win10 directly - Till yet i dont have any Problems (probably 10 restarts without the headphones)

    I was like you just afraid :D

    Thank you for the info. I will plug a headset as soon as I am sure that there is no risk (driver updated)

    Yes Apple has already issued an updated driver a few weeks ago. When using boot camp in Mac OS it will automatically download the latest drivers. So there is no need to be afraid of the installing windows anymore.

    That's reassuring...are you running bootcamp on 2016 MBP as well? If so which model do you have?

    Yes I'm running boot camp on my 2016 MBP 15" 2.9Ghz with Radeon pro 460. It's been working great and I've had zero issues.

    I have not noticed any throttling issues at all. It runs much cooler than my old 2008 unibody MBP this replaced.

    Throttling will occur on any slim laptop with an i7 depending on how long you push the CPU for in a given operation. If it's gaming it won't really throttle or not much. If it's rendering a heavy video timeline or 3D CGI then yes. Laptops are not suitable for that.

    That's good to know and i also wanted to update....I installed bootcamp last night and it all worked like a charm I took some precautions like plugging in the headphones while you boot the first time and during the whole installation etc.

    Noted! Actually its not much of a concern as I mostly do all the heavy lifting on the desktop and if it throttles a little its okay
