In addition to providing Windows 10/11 drivers for older graphics cards with the discontinued GCN architecture, AMD today released a surprise, but rather messy, driver for Windows 7.
The first isVersion 22.6.1 (Display driver version 21.09.12.01)Yes, it's the same version as the old graphics driver, but the OS is Windows 7 only, and the hardware is a mix of the old and new, but it's desktop only, not mobile.
Specifically include:RX 6000/5000 series, RX Vega/500/400 series, Radeon 500 series, HD 8000/7000 series, R2/R3/R4/R5/R7/R9 series APU.
There is only one update: graphics cards such as RX 6900 XT may not install drivers correctly.
And the weird thing is,RX 6400, RX 6500 XT two new generation of entry-level graphics cards, is a separate driver package, all other models are another.I don't know why.
The second version is not named by time, only the display driver version, again 21.09.12.01, but it only supports RX 6950 XT, RX 6750 XT, RX 6650 XT.
Specific update content is not available, it is not clear why such a separate version.
What's even weirder is that version 22.6.1 also supports RX 6x50 XT.
In other words, if you're using an RX 6x50 XT graphics card and a Windows 7 driver, you'll have two drivers to install at the same time. I don't know which one to choose.
What's going on with AMD's driver division? …
