Interesting news. If the rumor is correct then ATI is going to limit the list of supported graphics cards in the next release of Catalyst. Apparantly as of Catalyst 9.4 ATI is going to drop support for the following graphics cards:
Radeon 9500, 9600, 9800, X800, X1800, X1900 and other older desktop video cards.
On the professional side Catalyst 9.4 will no longer support the FireGL X1/X2/X3, V3000, V5000, V7000 and FireMV 2200, 2250 professional cards. Of course owners of these models will still be permitted to download older drivers and use them happily. The ATI Catalyst 9.4 is set to be released next month.
A small hint for ATI owners, we colled all ATI drivers ever since 2006, be sure to check out our downlaod section if you need one.
