AMD's hands tied with lack of mobility Vista support

Posted on Sunday, April 22 2007 @ 00:01:44 CEST by


There have been quite a few people complaining that their AMD/ATI powered laptops will not accept "reference" drivers from the AMD/ATI website, specifically on the Driver Heaven forums. They asked AMD about their exact stance on this and Terry Makedon, AMD Manager for Software Product Management Graphics Product Group, has replied with the following:

"AMD (formerly ATI) introduced the concept of Catalyst Mobility which is a generic driver that works decently for most laptops. The only way we are able to do this is through permission by a laptop manufacturer (OEM) to include their device in the Catalyst Mobility. We were the first company to provide graphics drivers for laptops to the general public, and we believe there is great value in this. At this point we only have permission from a few vendors and I personally wish more of them would let us. My suggestion is you contact your manufacturer and ask them to have your laptop included in Catalyst Mobility. As for Vista specifically we do not have permissions yet, but as soon as we do we look forward to releasing Vista drivers for laptops."
