Giblets: AMD drops development for Windows 8.0

AMD recently announced the Catalyst 14.6 beta but they also provided a very important tidbit about the beta drivers – Windows 8.0 32 and 64-bit were not supported, while other versions of Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 were. In a statement given to Guru3D, the company said that they were choosing to “focus our development efforts on the latest version of Windows 8, which is available to all users as a free update.” This means that Windows 8.0, for all intents, is dead in the water to AMD.

Then again, Windows 8.1 and Windows 8.1 Update are available for free, so they may have a valid point. If you’re still on Windows 7, though, as you were.
