    make sure you have all of the windows 7 updates installed, thats where i would start,

    also, keep in mind this driver isn't anything special, on win 7 there is no virtually gain over the normal catalyst 15.11.1 beta,not really worth your time to be fiddling around with the custom driver package.

    Please, tell me, is there anything newer or better for a HD 5870?
    I have a friend that for now, he is VERY broke and can't buy anything.
    I want to install him the very best driver that could be.

    I was able to install him the FirePro V8800 drivers.
    But, I was wondering if anything better is available.

    Thank you in advance!

    nope, Nothing new has appeared (afaik) since those last firepro drivers were released. wouldn't expect much either, pretty dead. I would honestly take a look around locally for a any used Gcn , or fermi cards, might be able to snag something for >$20 if you're lucky

    Lol, I wish. Not in my country.

    I guess the firepro drivers it is!
    Thank you for the answer!

    Hi guys. I have a laptop based on i5 2520M + 6gb RAM + Intel HD Graphics and Radeon HD7670M. Everything works very well, but ... I would like to play something new (DMC5 for example). Even a poor GT610M allows you to run it, because it has updated drivers. My Radeon, as it seems to me, will be a more powerful GT610M, but since there are no new drivers for it, it fails to start ... Is there a way to find unofficial drivers for my 7670M (1GB)?

    Is missing DirectX 11 support with the new Windows 10 builds a known issue? I've just noticed that with the newest 20H1 Insider Preview that certain games which used to work with my 6770M do not run on the dGPU anymore or use DirectX 9 backend instead of DirectX 11 before. Maybe other former builds are also affected. But maybe the issue is somewhere else...

    *edit*: I've now clean installed the latest Windows Update driver, the issue is still there.

    if it doesn't work on newer builds, im afraid it means microsoft has broken backwards compatibility with older drivers, nothing can be done about that, hopefully it will be fixed by retail release time.

    that's one of the issues I had since W10 version 1709, and there has been no way to get my dGPU to get back to work, even if it does (silently), allowing me to play i.e. diablo 3 or fallout 4 which are out the possibilities of my iGPU...

    Hope AMD or MS would fix this somehow...

    Haven't checked the dGPU on older laptops. Have you posted this in the MS forums / Insider forums? That is probably your best bet.

    I used their feedback form to make MS aware of the issue. But I doubt that this gets noticed and fixed anytime soon. I've since switched to openSUSE Tumbleweed and can even play some of my games. As this Notebook got re-purposed as an office machine, I am surprised how well this combination works on Linux, at least for daily tasks the experience is better.

    Last version driver 15.301.XXXX with pre-gcn is 15.301.2601.1004 ?
    Is there a driver version 16.XXX (16.101.XXXX) series with pre-gcn for windows 8.1 officially (include CU.inf file ?)

    The last official driver for pre-GCN is the 16.2.1 (15.301.1901 it seems) Beta driver for HD 5000-6000 series. For the older HD 2000-4000 series, it's either 13.9 Legacy for Windows 7 or the driver provided by Windows update for the later OSes (which AFAIK is basically 13.9 but certified for those OSes)

    I know that. I'm wondering what the latest version is for windows 8.1 (with unofficial support pre-gcn, for modding). I searched a lot on the Internet and didn't find version 16.X (16.101.XXXX) for Win 8.1, all packages include C0******.inf for win 10 and C7******.inf for win7, CU******.inf for win win 8.1 is missing.

    i have asus k53ta (a6+6650m) and using this driver even it causes BSODs. I am on windows10 and having dx11 problems. Some games works on igpu with dx11, they doesnt even start on dgpu. For ex. ETS2 with new update it got dx11 support but it runs just on igpu , thats too bad, i am thinking about rolling back to win7. Could you give a fix for that or any suggestion ?
