Doubts about drivers for Radeon HD 7290M

Hello.

I have a 3 years old Semp Toshiba laptop, with Windows 7 Starter 32 bits. The laptop's vendor only offer a old Catalyst (version 8.0 of 2012/04/06, if I am not mistaken).

I did use the AMD Driver Autodetect although it only finds driver for Radeon HD 7290 PCIE (without the "M"). Then I installed the Catalyst 15.11.1 provided here AMD Catalyst 15.11.1 Beta Driver for Windows  that states in the release notes support for Radeon HD 7000M series. After installing it, the Information > Hardware tab in the Catalyst Control Center wrongly display that is using a Radeon HD 7290 device (again, without the "M"). In the process of uninstalling and installing the driver I also used the AMD clean up utility.

 

Finally, I would like to know if the Radeon HD 7290M is still currently supported, or if there legacy drivers for it. Thanks in advance.
