    End of support (hd6000 series) Really Amd?

    trax383

      I have 2x hd6970 and i can play every new game at high settings. And Amd just announced they just stopped driver support for hd6000 series. Are you kidding me Amd? And u expect to me buy a new gpu from Amd? I'll just laugh to that. I can see 980ti SLi on the horizon..

          AMD Radeon™ HD 8000 Series (HD 8400 and below), Radeon™ HD 7000 Series (HD 7600 and below), Radeon™ HD 6000 Series, and Radeon™ HD 5000 Series Graphics products have been moved to a legacy support model and no additional driver releases are planned. This change enables us to dedicate valuable engineering resources to developing new features and enhancements for graphics products based on the GCN Architecture.

           

          As a courtesy to our valued supporters we are providing a final “As Is” Beta driver together with the release of the AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition. The AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition Beta driver includes the redesigned user interface as well as some enhanced features.  More information can be found in the AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition Beta Driver Release Notes.

           

          For users looking for a WHQL certified driver, the AMD Catalyst™ 15.7.1 driver will continue to be available for users running Windows® 10, Windows® 8.1, and Windows® 7.

            Yeah, I essentially have the same setup. HD 6990. I'm very angry.
