AMD Catalyst Beta Drops Win 8.0 Support

AMD support now offers a new AMD Catalyst 14.7 beta driver for AMD/ATI graphics cards running under Windows. Here's the word on what this does, which includes dropping support for Windows 8.0:

  • Starting with AMD Catalyst™ 14.6 Beta, AMD will no longer support Windows 8.0 (and the WDDM 1.2 driver)
  • Windows 8.0 users should upgrade (for free) to Windows 8.1 to take advantage of the new features found in the AMD Catalyst 14.7 RC3 driver
  • AMD Catalyst 14.4 will remain available for users who wish to remain on Windows 8
    • A future AMD Catalyst release will allow for the WDDM 1.1 (Windows 7 driver) to be installed under Windows 8.0 for those users unable to upgrade to Windows 8.1
