          I seriously doubt AMD will improve or update on a Graphics Driver that is used only in legacy GPUs. You do have a WHQL Graphics Driver for the legacy GPU that uses it. It is version 15.x.xx. The BETA version was the last update for the WHQL 15.x.xx. Driver.

           

          As AMD mentioned there will be no more updates for legacy GPUs and that includes version 15 and BETA 16 drivers.

              I remember when that initial beta crimson driver was released. The said it was a thank you to all those cards customers and that it would be the final driver and to not expect a WHQL driver. That card as you already said is legacy. It is deprecated and not supported. The only future support comes for the driver as it is or any driver Microsoft releases in future repositories for Windows.

                    From AMD Support: AMD Radeon™ Software Support for Legacy Graphics Products | AMD

                     

                    Copied from above link:

                    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.

                     

                    If you keep insisting in finding a WHQL Driver after 16.2.1, you have two choices:

                     

                    1) Purchase and replace your legacy AMD GPU card with a more modern supported AMD GPU Card

                    2) Create and reprogram your own WHQL Driver from the 16.2.1 BETA

                     

                    I won't be responding to this thread anymore since you don't want to accept that there is a newer WHQL Driver besides 15.7.1 for your obsolete AMD GPU card which is NOT SUPPORTED BY AMD ANYMORE.

                     

                    Good luck
