    Radeon HD 4800 series PCIe needs driver 15.7 or newer for my games. any ideas


      cant find any beta drivers or anything to make games work..any ideas?


      After five years of active service, the ATI Radeon™ HD 4000, ATI Radeon™ HD 3000, and ATI Radeon™ HD 2000 Series products reached peak performance optimization on October 15, 2013, and were transitioned to a legacy support lifecycle. No additional driver releases are planned for these products. It is important that PC gamers migrate to a modern AMD Radeon™ graphics card. Customers migrating to a modern GPU can benefit from exciting new features, improved performance, lower power consumption and broad compatibility with the latest PC games.p>
