Version 14.4 of the AMD/ATI video card driver suite was released on April 24, 2014. This is the latest version of these drivers, compatible with most AMD-based video cards.

This is the final, WHQL version of these drivers and replaces all previously available drivers. You should install v14.4 if you have a supported AMD or ATI GPU running any previous driver release, including any beta version.

See What Version of This Driver Do I Have Installed? if you're not sure which AMD Radeon driver version you have installed.

Changes in AMD Radeon v14.4

Here are more details on some of the fixes, improvements, and other changes in version 14.4:

  • Adds support for the AMD Radeon R9 295X series GPU.
  • Updates AMD CrossFire for Crysis 3, Far Cry 3, Anno 2070, and several more games.
  • Adds full support for OpenGL 4.4.
  • Fixes two specific issues with BattleField 4.
  • Updates the AMD Catalyst Display Driver & Control Center to version 14.10.1006.

You can see all the details on this new release, including the full list of fixes, plus a full list of compatible AMD/ATI GPUs, in the Catalyst 14.4 Release Notes.

Supported desktop AMD GPUs for v14.4 include Radeon R9 (290, 280, 270, 260, 250, 240) and Radeon HD (7900, 7800, 7700, 7660D, 7560D, 7300, 6900, 6800, 6700, 6600, 6550D, 6530D, 6500, 6410D, 6370D, 6310D, 6300, 6200, 5900, 5800, 5700, 5600, 5500, 5400) series GPUs.

Tip: Not sure if you should download the 32-bit or 64-bit driver? See Am I Running a 32-bit or 64-bit Version of Windows? for help. If you're not even sure what GPU you have, you can choose to download and install AMD Driver Autodetect which will identify your operating system and video card, and then provide you with the correct driver.

Download AMD Video Drivers (Mobile)

AMD also provides drivers for some laptops, notebooks, netbooks, and tablets with AMD-based graphics. These computers will often say they that they're powered by an AMD Mobility chip of some series or another.

64-bit Download [Windows 8/8.1, 7]

Supported mobile AMD GPUs for v14.4 include Mobility Radeon HD (8000M, 7000M, 6900M, 6800M, 6300M, 6300, 6200, 5800, 5700, 5600, 5400, 5100, 6620G, 6520G, 6480G, 6380G, 6310G, 6250G) and PowerXpress series GPUs.

Important: Toshiba, Sony VAIO, and Panasonic notebooks with integrated AMD graphics are not supported by any driver from AMD. Please use the video drivers provided by your computer manufacturer in place of these drivers provided by AMD.

AMD Video Drivers for Windows Vista & Windows XP

AMD does support Windows Vista and Windows XP but not always with the latest driver version. Check for Vista and XP drivers for your AMD-based video card from the AMD Graphics Drivers and Software Download page.

Download Drivers for Older AMD/ATI Chipsets

Desktop and Mobility Radeon HD 4000, HD 3000, HD 2000 drivers, as well as Radeon HD AGP series drivers, tend to be released less often, and are usually focused on problem fixing instead of feature adding.

Find the latest driver available for these GPUs from the AMD Graphics Drivers and Software Download page. Beta drivers and drivers for other AMD products can also be found there.

See my Windows 7 Drivers and Windows 8 Drivers pages for information about popular new drivers in those versions of Windows. I keep those resources regularly updated with releases not only from AMD, but also from other major hardware makers.

Having Trouble With These New AMD Video Drivers?

The first thing to do if your newly installed AMD video drivers don't work is to uninstall and then reinstall the installation package. You can do this from the appropriate applet in Control Panel.

If that's not possible for some reason, try rolling back the driver. See How to Roll Back a Driver for detailed instructions in all versions of Windows.

If you run in to something that you need some expert help with, see my Get More Help for information about contacting me on social networks or via email, posting on tech support forums, and more. Please include what version of AMD Radeon drivers you installed (or are trying to install), your version of Windows, any errors you're receiving, what steps you've already taken to try to fix the problem, etc.

Tip: If you encounter problems after installing these drivers and you're confident that it's a bug with the new driver, let AMD know by filling out their AMD Issue Reporting Form for desktop computers (here) or mobile computers (here).
