Radeon 6970M Windows7 Imac 2011 new drivers

Discussion created by klonliv on May 26, 2016

Hi all!

My configuration is:

  • Imac 2011
  • Intel i5-2400 3,10Ghz
  • AMD Radeon HD6970M
  • Windows7

 

Some new games (like Battlefield or Overwatc) require a fresh video drivers. My version of video driver is 14.301.1010.0 (date is 01.11.2014).

Please, tell me, is it possible to get newer driver? I tried to download and install

from here Apple Boot Camp Software Graphics Drivers .

 

Supported systems in the description:

Supported Systems:

  • iMac (2007+)

 

But when i installed it, my computer came slow and maximum resolution was 1920*1080 instead my common maximum resolution 2560*1440.

Therefore i deleted Catalyst2015 and reinstalled 2014 year.

 

1. Is it correct behavior? Does Imac2007+ category include Imac2011?? Please, help me! Because i want newer driver for my games )

2. Btw, when im playing a game, my maximum video dedicated memory is 700Mb, so i have additional 300mb or not? Because sometime i have bad fps but if my video 1GB why it dedicates near 700Mb maximum? I got dump from GPU-Z.0.8.7 tool.
