AMD To Drop Catalyst Support For HD 2000, HD 3000 and HD 4000 Series

Published: Apr 21st 2012, 03:30 GMT

UPDATE: This information is wrong, please refer to this post for more accurate info. According to Phoronix AMD will drop Catalyst support for pre-HD 5000 Radeon Series. This will happen around the time of releasing Catalyst 12.7 driver — which can be expected in Summer.

If you are still using one of those prehistoric graphics cards (I’m joking — they are only 4 year old sic!) then you might consider upgrading it to new GPU. It seems that AMD does everything they can to make you buy one of those shinny Tahiti cards. This is somehow funny, because NVIDIA still supports GeForce 6000 Series which were released in 2004 and AMD drops support for HD 4000 series from 2008.

Radeon HD 4870
