AMD has picked a bad time to drop support for older GPUs


AMD has announced that its latest driver update, which ushers in some kind of support for FidelityFX Super Resolution among other things, will see support for some older cards shifted to a “legacy support model”. Only some of the cards in question aren’t too old and include the Radeon R9 Fury and Nano series as well as 300 series graphics cards (including the Radeon R9 390, which we have a bit of a soft spot for).

It may not sound so bad on first reading either, as a legacy support model still get some support, right? Not really, what it actually means is “No additional driver releases are planned to support these graphics products.” That basically means these older cards won’t get the optimisations needed to make new games run smoothly, or at all in some cases, and any serious problems will basically go unresolved.
