Is the X800 SE RV 370 end-of-life?

I recently acquired a secondary, used computer.  It's an older, HP Compaq with Intel Core 2 Quad CPU, circa 2009-2010.  I put Windows 10 Insider Preview on it from scratch and its using the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter, driving a rather pitiful resolution.


I'm a bit confused on what to search for for this card.  I found various bits of information:

  • Chip Type: ATI RV370
  • Bios Information: V380
  • Hardware Id: PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_5B60&SUBSYS_04021002&REV_00
  • Search results for Hardware Id: ATI X800 SE


I used the Auto Detect utility, and it said no driver is available.  Searches for the RV370 are unreliable, and X800 SE searches don't find any drivers past Windows Vista.


I downloaded the Catalyst driver anyways, but it fails due to an unnamed DLL (I already installed VC++ 2012 runtime and .NET 4.5.2 is built in).  I pointed right to the *.inf file anyways, but I couldn't find an X800 or RV370 in the list.


Is this card really that out of date?  I can understand a Windows 10 driver not being available, but I was hoping a Windows 8.x or Windows 7 driver might still work.
