ATI drivers for the HD 4000,3000, 2000

There is a new driver, dated 20/1/2013, on the ATI driver support page..

http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Legacy/Pages/legacy-radeonaiw-vista64.aspx

I wish that I had a snapshot of the driver page when Windows 8 appeared. It was obvious that somebody had made the decision NOT to support the HD’s below the 5000 models, but now there is a statement as to why there has been a shift in policy..

“The reason for the shift in support policy is largely due to the fact that the AMD Radeon HD 4000, AMD Radeon HD 3000, and AMD Radeon HD 2000 Series have been optimized to their maximum potential from a performance and feature perspective.”

There isn’t a chance that it could be because so many NEW laptops and desktop motherboards have the HD4250 integrated video card, could it..

Whatever the real reason, at least they are still updating the drivers.. Smile
