For those who are gaming with the Radeon HD 4000, 3000, and 2000 Series of Radeon cards, there is a new driver that has been released for Windows 8 to support these cards.

The drivers are provided AS IS and have not passed Windows certification.

Might want to sticky this post as well, we get a whole bunch of people on this forum who can't use the forum search.

Hi!

I have a problem with my Toshiba and its resolution on VGA 22" monitor. I decided to switch win7 to win8 and got stuck on this annoying issue. I can't set 1920x1080 @60Hz on win8 even though there was no problem in doing so in win7 (I just had to uncheck the "list all modes" field and then choose 1920x1080 @60Hz from the list).

Now, I only see 1920x1080 resolution @23, 24, 25 and 30Hz. None of which is working for me. Any idea how to fix it?
