AMD will continue to support their DX9/10/10.1 GPUs on Linux
A couple of months ago we learned that AMD was planning to modify its schedule of new releases Catalyst graphics drivers , rumor was confirmed a few days to move the support of their GPUs DX10/10.1 legacy mode , and subsequently alter the frequency support their DX11/11.1 GPUs .
These policy changes to support their GPUs that many supposed it did not develop any new amd graphics driver for your old GPUs directx 10/10.1 on Linux, AMD claims that rumor is false, then continue to develop drivers for these old GPUs under support legacy.
The support means that AMD Legacy driver support between their old GPUs (R500 or Radeon X1300 and above) of its main line of development for its GPUs DirectX 11 and above, this means that AMD will release a driver package for its exclusive old GPUs, which will be updated every so often (every three or four months) to correct errors identified or fix compatibility issues with the new management GUI.
