    AMD HD 5800 series update Windows 8.1

    faisal3398

      A game asked me to update my amd to 16.2 or higher (currently 15.3), I tried to download the update for my drive but it never changed from 15.3, I even tried to download updates from other drives but nothing worked. Is 15.3 the latest update? Is it because of Windows 8,1? Can someone help me if they know or had the same problem.

          16.2.1 is the latest driver for legacy (HD 6000 series and earlier) products. Beta drivers often do not update the driver version tag, but that does not mean you didn't install them.

           

          AMD Radeon™ Software Support for Legacy Graphics Products

          AMD Radeon™ R5 235X, Radeon™ R5 235, Radeon™ R5 230, Radeon™ R5 220, Radeon™ HD 8470, Radeon™ HD 8350, Radeon™ HD 8000 (D/G variants), 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 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 16.2.1 for Non GCN Products Release Notes. This driver is provided "as is" and will not be supported with further updates, upgrades or bug fixes.

          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.
