    Windows 10 drivers/catalyst software for older graphic cards.




      I recently upgraded to Windows 10, and like many others I've had some issues with dual screens and the zoom/aspect ratio. I've had this before on W7 and was able to fix it in the Catalyst Control Center, but W10 and my graphics card aren't the best of buddies it seems. I've looked through the forums and couldn't find if or when the Catalyst would become compatible for Radeon HD 4800 series (anything lower than the current 5000 cap seen in this thread Catalyst 15.7.1 is now available)


      In case it will not be updated for WIndows 10, I'd like to ask for advice as to what to do next.


      Many thanks in advance.

          I keep seeing comments that Radeon HD 4800 series does not have a driver available in windows10 one of them locked.

          But as a customer of many years and purchaser of many ATI cards it would be nice if AMD could say...

          Ok no new drivers will be available; however, if you load "this" old driver it should work.

          or We are working on it since we value you as a customer.

            The following Discrete AMD Radeon™ Graphics products support up to WDDM 1.1 and DirectX® 10.1:

            • ATI Radeon™ HD 4000 Series /ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 4000 Series Graphics
            • ATI Radeon™ HD 3000 Series /ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 3000 Series Graphics
            • ATI Radeon™ HD 2000 Series /ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 2000 Series Graphics

            These graphics products must be installed using display driver version: 8.970.100.9001. This driver is provided as a courtesy and only available via Windows Update. Please enable Windows Update and allow it to detect and install the appropriate driver. NOTE: ATI Radeon™ HD 4000/ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 4000, ATI Radeon™ HD 3000/ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 3000, and ATI Radeon™ HD 2000/ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 2000 Series Graphics reached peak performance optimization on October, 2013. No additional driver releases are planned for these products. Discrete AMD Graphics Products That Do Not Support Windows® 10 The following is a list of graphics products that do not have driver support Windows® 10:

            • ATI Radeon™ X1### Series/ATI Mobility Radeon™ X1### Series Graphics
            • ATI Radeon™ X### Series/ATI Mobility Radeon™ X### Series Graphics
            • ATI Radeon™ 9000 Series Graphics
            • ATI Radeon™ 8500 Graphics
            • ATI Radeon™ 7500 Graphics
            • ATI Radeon™ DDR Graphics
            • ATI Radeon™ 7000 Graphics
            • ATI Radeon™ 7000VE Graphics
            • ATI Radeon™ 7000LE Graphics

            Windows® 10 will install the default Microsoft® Basic Display Driver (MBDD) for these graphics adapters. MBDD provides basic display functionality (low resolutions and color) on a single monitor but DOES NOT support:

            • Display scaling control
            • Multiple displays
            • Display rotation
            • Video capture
            • Power settings
            • VSync control
            • Brightness control on integrated display panels
            • AMD Catalyst™ Control Center

            If your system is equipped with an AMD Radeon™ X1### Series product or older, you may consider the following options:

            1. Continue using the existing operating system.
            2. If you have already upgraded to Windows® 10 and would like to revert back to the previous version of Windows, refer to this Microsoft page for instructions
            3. Upgrade to an AMD graphics product that provides Windows® 10 support. For information about resellers and product availability, visit: http://shop.amd.com

            NOTE: Before upgrading ensure that your system meets the requirements of the graphics adapter, such as

            1. Motherboard with compatible graphics card slot
            2. Adequate power supply unit to handle the complete system power requirement
            3. Display with compatible connections
