    Sorry fred, what I meant was that since this required development work not just a quick fix it was not likely to come out fast enough for a hotfix to make sense. We have some flexibility scheduling releases around new deliverables so it is more likely that we would pick a different week for the "monthly" release rather than inserting an additional release.

      I understand that it is not alway has simple as it seem and that a lot of hard work go in the making of video driver.

      I ask about contacting THE QA manager because I think that the fact that such a mainstream video card is not supported is something that should never happen. Because it does the company real harm in the market. And that something that need to be look at by management.

        Neeeeeed helppp

        I agree with the upping of such thread.
        Because I also just purchased a sapphire hd2600pro.
        And driver support is shocking.
        And crysis runs in maybe 15fps in any setting, same with gears of war and UT3.
        Pretty disappointing and I have the hotfix installed and the latest directx.
        I even tried the dx10 alternative which is a bitch to uninstall that is if I even have it uninstalled at the moment:S
        And I would really love to get working drivers for this card.
        Or do you think its because I havent really had the card warm up to the graphics and usual play of the games.
        They use to run fine on my 9600xt.
        But this card is just shocking with some games.
        It runs timeshift alright and the first time I played GOW it was fine but laggy and after that it just got worse.
        Any suggestions?
        Thanks.
        Lach.

              Well, as soon as I noticed this thread, I signed up and read every post here. I have bought the same graphic card, Radeon HD 2600 PRO AGP, finding out there wasn't any driver, sure wasn't good to hear. I check the ATI homepage 1 min later, and what do I see? The new version 8.3 :] When I had checked it only 2 min earlier with the old still there, 8.2

              Now the BAD news: Trying to install this new version didn't work for me. Still getting the same error message, unsupported hardware or like that. Taking a look at the release notes, nothing in it (far as I could tell) mentions added AGP support.

                Yes, Catalyst 8.3 for Windows doesn't support Radeon 2600 for AGP... I will try C8.3 for Linux... but link doesn't work... I like ATI products, I always bought only ATI cards, but this situation is not fair for users...

                      Glad to hear that I'll keep on hoping the next catalyst, 8.4, will have agp support...for Windows XP

                          Ok not bad The card now work with the performance equivalent of a radeon 9250 card!!!!!

                          WTF did you guy's do at AMD did you test the driver on a few AGP HD2XXX before releasing this driver?

                          I hope that someone has some tweak for this driver because this card is returning in it's box again!

                            compiz-fusion with AIGLX is OK But the gaming performance still is on par with a radeon 9250!!!

                            C'mon your so close HDR work and motion blur work too BTW

                              Yes the january hotfix.
                              And gears of war still isnt working and Ive done a system restore.
                              Its this DX10 for xp it doesnt work.
                              But before I had it installed and just in general the card ran really badly with like 15fps in ANY game.

                                Drivers works properly on my Fedora Performance of speed isn't good, but this is first good step for 2xxx series AGP for Linux I run application on Linux (Catalyst 8.3) and Windows XP (the latest Omega Drivers) and on Linux I have about 160FPS, on Windows 310FPS, I hape than performance of speed will be better in C8.4
