I don't want a lower version, i simply want to know if the support has now stopped in 9.4 for the older cards (like discussed long ago in this thread) as amd claimed.

The latest catalysts go from the 2000 series to latest 4000s there. You would need to find an older 7.x -8.x cat. for an anything older like the Radeon 9000s upto the X1000s. The 7.9 was about the first for the 2000s there.

heh heh, got it one I had 7048-68 nice and stable. 7077 not so much. It's even reintroduced the appcrash/freeze with a stuck sound loop from earlier builds

I believe so. 9.3 was the last to support it.

For arriving at AMD first and then not getting lost the way they have it set up now you select which you are looking for at AMD.com | Support & Downloads
That only gave me the option of 9.3 or 9.4 - Not very helpful if I wanted both CCC and cat 8.10 for example. (some people do )

No no no.. Let me explain more clearly...

9.2 - supports the 9600 and other cards
9.3 - supports the 9600 and other cards (i think but have not tried yet)
9.4 - Does it still support the older cards or has the support stopped like amd said it would?

Before downloading anything the best thing to look at is the release notes for any update that shows which model lines as well as versions of Windows one will support.



Now above what is seen there the 3000s are listed along with the 4600s and other models. That simply show the 2000s when looking for the catalyst and drivers for Vista/7. For an older 9xxx model you would select XP or Vista since none are seen for 7.

As I was saying before you have to go back into the Cat. 7s and 8s as the last seeing any support for the 9xxx series while selecting the XP or Vista option. There is no 7 support going back that far while Vista drivers will usually work if you still have an older card.

At least the updates AMD put out cover a larger number there over what was seen before AMD bought ATI out. When the X1xxx series first came out ATI dropped all support for the 9xxx!
