The Corrupted One

Ugh, the last few drivers where horribly unstable on my dual 6850's.

I hope this is an improvement.

nVidia 310.90 also was released on the low low recently

When the hell are those of us who are still on the HD 4000 series going to get a new driver, I know my card is in legacy support, but I remember AMD saying we'd get a new driver approx. every 3 months or so, it's been just over 7 months since 12.6....

You won't, come out of the dark ages and upgrade already. Bet you need an entire new system by now anyways.

I don't have a job, I cannot afford to upgrade my computer, I haven't worked in over 4 years, and it's been just over 2 years since I last had a job interview, and it's not from the lack of sending out resumes.

Right, because EVERY system in YOUR house has and NEEDS a 6000 or 7000 series card (or comparable Nvidia card). Please.

There is nothing "dark ages" about wanting to keep perfectly usable hardware running with current drivers.

For example, my Media Center system runs EVERYTHING I need it to on a pair of 4850s and a Quad-core 9650. Why should I throw that system away?

that depends on your power bill (:

I think it's safe to assume we won't be getting any updates. I've also found (after hours of unnecessary testing) that the best version for my 4850 is 12.1, so I'm even worse than you. Anyway, that card turned out to be a pretty decent purchase for its time and since I don't care for modern games, I can live with it until my next system upgrade.

the 4000 series definitely lost support already, that last major driver update to which you refer was basically a driver model and codebase compatability release for Dx 11.1++ and Msft's 6.2.920x

Well, I find it really stupid that they said 2000/3000/4000 series of cards would get legacy support every 3 months or thereabouts, and then completely drop support.

When I have the money to upgrade my PC, I think I'll be going with an nVIDIA card, their support seems to last a lot longer.
