I am about to upgrade my Lenovo T500 to windows 8 (.1) can anyone tell me if the ATI Mobility Radeon HD36650 is compatible and will run DirectX 9 or later?

Thanks

Bill

It takes a 5xxx series and above to meet the 8.1 standards. You also might want to check with Leveno to see if your model laptop will support Windows 8.1. Some do not.

Ray-

Thanks for the reply.

I ran the Microsoft 8.1 compatability checker and I did not see any flags that it would not work. I am checking with Lenovo as well.

That Microsoft test isn't that reliable. Read some of the other posts in this section...before you spend your money. There are quite a few people who have run into the same issue.
