Request: Newer Catalyst driver for Windows 2000

Recommended Posts

I know that you suggest I'd go with nVidia, but for the time being, to run Windows 2000 in proper resolution, I'm requesting a catalyst driver for Windows 2000 just so I can get out of the dreaded 640x480 with 16 colors. Any help?

No, I don't suggest NVidia, those drivers have earned  a special mention in my book. They are the ONLY ones I have EVER found to be so horribly bad that the even older ones packaged on the Microsoft OS install CDs actually work better!

 

I know Catalyst 6.x (most of the files are version 6.14.10.x according to Windows driver details) runs on W2k since I have that running. I think I found it on an install CD that came with an older video card. It does want you to have .NET 2.0 and DirectX 9.0c installed first. The vendor for that card seems to think W2k also works with 7.2  (but I haven't tried that), see http://www.powercolor.com/us/support_driver.asp?byclass=1&PSeries=7&PModel=30 - you might be able to get the CCC out of that package.

 

AMD seems to think CCC ver 8 can run on W2k, at least for some versions of some video cards, see http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/archive/firemv-2k  They also have an old DL page for CCC 6.4 at http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/archive/integrated-2k There are more older versions at http://www.oldapps.com/ati.php.

 

But the bigger question might be whether these older drivers will work with newer cards - is this intended for the Radeon R7 260x mentioned in your other thread? Not sure whether http://web.archive.org/web/20141014074132/http://benchmark3d.com/mod-catalyst-driver-to-add-supported-cards might be any help - I haven't tried this either.
