AMD release new Windows 8 drivers


While it would be fair to say that PC gamers and developers alike are wary of what Windows 8 might mean for a medium which regularly celebrates openness and freedom among its chief virtues, the wheels continue to turn and a very different Windows rolls into place ready for its release this weekend.

The new AMD catalyst drivers are for Radeon HD 7000, HD 6000 and HD 5000 series in 64 bit and 32 bit flavours.

There’s also Windows 8 support for the AMD Radeon™ HD 4000, HD 3000 and HD 2000 series.
