Hi Guys,

 

I'm running Windows 7 via Bootcamp on my Late 2009 27'' i7 iMac.  Trying to improve FPS in game and wondering if my driver is outdated.  When I attempt to update the driver through the Device Manager, it says Im up to date, but I honestly dont believe it.  Driver Date is 1/4/2011 and the driver version is 8.812.0.0.  Anyone have any idea if this is indeed the most up to date driver for my Radeon HD 4850? 

 

Thanks!!

Here is a link to a later version driver but the 4850 is legacy anyway

That one probably won't work. Macs have OEM hardware and only work with OEM drivers. Knowing Apple probably the last OEM driver for the card is indeed from 2011...
