    Finally! The awesome new AMD Radeon Software Crimson was released today! (Driver version 15.30.1025)
    Optimized for all the latest PC games and an improved software suite overall!
    Grab them here: http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/desktop?os=Windows+10+-+64
    The new drivers plus software suite from AMD!

    Sarkasm on
    And there is good news!
    Sarkasm off
    The M370x used in the latest retina 15 Macbook Pro for a staggering 2500+ Dollars is... well it is as usual not supported!!!

    Sorry folks but that's it! Finally! I can't take it anymore....
    **** APPLE AND **** AMD IN THEIR STUPID A$$E$!!!!
    Stop making golden watches for 10.000 Dollars and get back to basics. Maybe it is Tim Cook... next he wants to release leather apple handbags for men!

    Or you could buy a laptop that was suitable for gaming instead of something you knew wouldn't be and you knew wouldn't get these updates.....

    I use the laptop with Bootcamp for Solidworks which is a professional CAD software - so think again. In case you don't understand: Not a game! :-D


    But do I understand you correct?
    You think it is correct for apple to not support bootcamp with new drivers??
    And you think it is my fault because I bought an apple laptop??
    You know:
    Apple officially supports the Macbook Pro 2015 with bootcamp so why shouldn't they release updated drivers (at least once in a while)!


    What did I do? Was it the apple handbags for men remark that pushed you over the line? LOL
    I certainly wasn't the strong words I used because they were censored and obfuscated automatically...
    Also I am not the only 2015 Macbook Pro user that is up in arms about the lame bootcamp support by apple - check the forum - lol
    So maybe you might be just an ignorant hater.

    Not at all, you indicated that you knew this was how apple works in your own post, I just don't understand how you can whine on about something you knew was going to be the case before you bought the product.

    You bought it in the full knowledge that driver updates will be sporadic and have to be completely reworked to work on apples OS and EFI and so may never happen at all. That is the choice you made when you bought it so yes it is your fault you bought something that wasn't what you wanted who's fault is it apples? If up to the date top quality dGPU performance was what you needed the computer for I can't understand why you would buy it in the first place.

    That would be like buying a windows laptop and complaining it doesn't run OSX.....

    Driver updates for Windoze merely slows your Mac even more. Be glad that you don't have to put up with driver BS updates. Display Driver updates in Windoze NEVER improves performance, but rather slowly grind your machine to a halt.

    No, it is not!

    Apple advertises the fact that Macs are able to run Windows.
    There is even a support page for it:
    https://www.apple.com/support/macbookpro/bootcamp/
    https://www.apple.com/support/macbookair/bootcamp/
    https://www.apple.com/support/bootcamp/
    (iMac/Mac Pro/Mac mini)

    So please do your homework before posting a weak response!

    LOL Is this some kind of freak show of delusional apple fanboyZ?
    And I thought I was the apple fanboy ;-)

    Especially GPU drivers can boost performance. Drivers even get optimized on a per game basis. Even CAD applications get sometimes optimized by new driver versions if you read the patch notes...
    Do your homework - lol

    Do your own homework.

    Bootcamp is included "as is", as a convenience to users. It is clearly stated that Apple will offer zero support past the initial install.

    Let me just pull up the fine print, in case you decided not to read it:
    Said install included a driver that is suitable to make it work. Period. And that's as far as Apple will ever go with Bootcamp. You got exactly what was advertised. A computer that runs a functional copy of Windows.

    If you bought a Mac to solely run Windows (CAD software to boot?? You should be a on a Quadro or similar card in the first place), the problem lies in the user, not the computer.

    My MBP is a great computer and I love it to death. But it definitely isn't a CAD workstation. I do CAD in SolidEdge, SolidWorks, CATIA on the daily, and I'd much rather use a proper windows machine with a Quadro GPU than my MBP, any day.

    Why is Apple at fault for AMD not including the M370x ID strings in their Windows driver? If anything, you should be upset about AMD.

    Because bashing apple pointlessly and with no thought as to the ridiculous emotional reaction they are having is an international passtime of some popularity...

    Where exactly did you read that!?! You just interpreted it that way to troll me!
    Apple even has a numerous support pages for bootcamp! Don't let me post those links again.
    And Apple released driver updates in the past!!
    Especially graphics drivers. (On a side note: Nvidia are exemplary in bootcamp driver support)
    Do your homework!!

    You seem to be such a delusional fanboy that you let apple get away with bad support and a bad choice.
    Lets face it - Apple put an old and bad supported graphics card in their flagship laptop just so they can save bucks manufacturing it. The card is even labeled as an 300 series card even though it is old and apple knew that at the time!

    Those drivers would be very very "special" because the last updated driver for the Macbook Pro was released months ago. So yes - for people actually owning the laptop these drivers would be very nice.
    For people not owning the 2015 laptop this thread only offers a way to vent about their daily chores - lol

    Read again, I wrote:
    So yes, Apple and AMD were mentioned ;-)

    As you can see I am upset about the two key players involved: Apple AND AMD!

    Wow what is it with these people. Does even one of those repliers own a 2015 Macbook Pro with the discrete graphics adapter???!!? LOOOOOL

    Sounds like you probably shouldn't have bought that MacBook Pro with the "old and bad" graphics card.

    Apple advertises that you can run Windows on a Mac using Boot Camp. Anything beyond that isn't promised or guaranteed. I mean, their trackpad driver in Windows 10 is pretty bad.

    Come on, stop talking like a self righteous hypocrite - you only came here to troll me...
    Maybe I was really angry about the bad support for the card but that is a real matter.
    You probably do not even own that machine and bashed me anyway....

    If it was advertised as an old graphics card and wasn't labeled as being a part of the new 300 series your statement would make sense. But since this is not the case you just seem abuse this thread to vent.

    Seriously none of the trolls commenting here even seem to own the machine.
    But they defend bad support for a machine they don't even have to work with! What the hell!?!

    Maybe they are big fanboy who defend apple for not doing their work .... or they are just trolls and abuse my frustration with bad support in order to vent about their daily chores! In either case pretty sad!

    That is called marketing. Are you going to complain that your "Pro" laptop doesn't have "pro" features too? Take your issue up with AMD, they're the ones that released the driver update that doesn't support your card.

    One could say that you're the troll here. You posted a thread in an Apple hardware centric forum complaining about AMD Windows driver support on your Mac.

    I have an Apple laptop because it does what I want a laptop to do. I have a PC desktop because it does what I want a desktop to do. If the 2015 rMBP doesn't do what you want it to do, you should have spent your money on something else.

    WOW did you just try to defend lying?
    Read this: https://www.ftc.gov/news-events/media-resources/truth-advertising


    Hmmm, lets see.
    Lets search only this forum for the words "AMD" and "WINDOWS":

    http://forums.macrumors.com/search/1135955/?q=amd+windows&t=post&o=date&g=1&c[node]=90

    Quite a big list!
    So this topic is really nothing out of the ordinary in this forum!!
    So what are you talking about?!?


    Kid, I see what you try to do here but you really have to work on your skills!!!
    Either you are a really delusional apple fanboy (the kind that even irritates other apple fanboys like me) or you are just a troll: Bashing someone who is having a problem with a machine you don't even own, use or work with... what is wrong with you?

    Thats why I have a dedicated Windows computer and a dedicated Mac. They don't dress like each other, and they both have different friends. I rarely see them at the same party.

    The solution is simply having different tools for different tasks.

    The truth of the matter is I'm not even going to click on your link because you didn't get my point. The name of the GPU is M370x. That doesn't mean anything in and of itself. It's not lying, it's marketing.

    I wasn't saying you shouldn't have asked the question. I was simply pointing out that you should expect the kinds of responses you're getting. You're acting like you're SURPRISED that people disagree with you.

    I'm not "bashing" anyone. So far that's all been on you.

    You are making a big deal about an AMD driver update for Windows in a Mac centric forum. You call people trolls. You're condescending. Those aren't actions or behaviors of someone who's trying to get a reasonable response.

    What do you expect?
