AMD dropping support for pre 5000 series cards in new drivers



/ 6 years ago

AMD will conclude driver updates for pre-Evergreen, or pre-Radeon HD 5000 (that’s HD 2000, HD 3000, and HD 4000) series GPUs, starting this summer.

The change could take effect with Catalyst 12.7 (around July). Users of these older GPUs can use the (then) latest driver (Catalyst 12.6) to run their older DirectX 10/10.1 graphics cards.

The elimination of pre-Evergreen GPUs could also slim down the driver package a bit, in terms of file-size.
