Those card manufacturers still make the cards, but because the catalyst has become more generic not all of the cards are compatible with all versions of the catalyst. It's a problem that goes in and out.
That's why I say, unless you really need the features of the catalyst, and there are very few things you need it for, there is no point risking it because the rollback game really gets boring after a while. Especially with a release every month now
The new Catalyst Control Center released a few weeks ago, now gives support for the cards that are not manufactured by AMD/ATI. Mine is an HP laptop, HP is supposed to do driver support after initial drivers are released, which they failed to do, which is one of the factors that AMD/ATI saw that they decided to give the support the manufacturers were not giving, I just got an update today for mine.
Also, I use a lot of the new tweaking options that comes with it, I just wish they would do like Nvidia did with some of their chipsets, and have it encoded in the software to be able to change the shared VRAM size, I want to reduce mine, as my computer sometimes hiccups and used it before the Dedicated.
I also will use the advanced controls to reduce certain fields that some of my games won't allow me to change in game like forcing AA off, some games force a 2xAA or higher to be one at all times.
