Download: Catalyst 9.4 WHQL
Uncommonly early in the month AMD has released the latest Catalyst driver package for HD Radeon graphics cards.
The official Catalyst 9.4 has been released quite early. The support of the April driver is, as expected, limited to the Radeon graphics cards of the HD series only, but also includes Mirosofts forthcoming Windows 7.
You can download the Catalyst 9.4 WHQL from game.amd.com or, as a logged in member of PCGH, via the direct downloads below.
