  • Catalyst 9.4 WHQL without support for DirectX 9 Radeons

    This is pretty interesting. We have talked here in the fourm before about the fact that drivers just keep getting bigger and bigger, in part due to the fact that devs have to take into account older hardware. Looks like ATI has decided to stop doing that.

    Catalyst 9.4 WHQL without support for DirectX 9 Radeons

    Up to now the monthly Catalyst drivers for Radeon graphics cards offered full support for older card from the DX9 generation. According to the developers at AMD will focus on drivers for current Radeon HD graphics cards and thus won't offer monthly updates for non-HD Radeons.
    So if you have an older card, the 9.3 driver will be the highest driver you can use.

    Here are the cards they are dropping:
