Encountering display issues, crashes, or performance problems? Try updating the driver for your graphics card (also called a video card, graphics processor, or GPU). A compatible driver can improve performance and let you use more features of your apps.

Update graphics driver on macOS

Graphics drivers are updated via operating system updates. Make sure that you have the latest macOS updates by choosing Software Update from the Apple menu or via Updates in the App Store.

Update graphics driver on Windows

Windows Update won't always give you the latest drivers. You must go directly to your card manufacturer’s website to check for driver updates:

Be aware that notebook drivers sometimes have a different name than similar desktop drivers. Some video adapter manufacturers have other software that requires updating in addition to the video driver. Read the update instructions carefully, and contact the video adapter manufacturer directly if you don't understand the instructions.
