AMD To Drop Radeon HD 2000/3000/4000 Catalyst Support - AMD To Drop Radeon HD 2000/3000/4000 Catalyst Support
Sat, Apr 21 2012 | 4:12PM | Filed under: Drivers| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

After that point, for future Linux distribution updates, the open-source Radeon Linux driver will be your only option for accelerated graphics. This is likely happening with the Windows Catalyst driver too, but at least there they have a better-maintained legacy driver process."
