Now I understand. It works like this:
For Radeon HD 5k and newer, you can use the latest drivers available.
For Radeon HD 2k, 3k and 4k cards (branded as ATi indeed) yuo need to use the latest legacy (still rarely updated) drivers.
For Radeon X series and older (made by ATi) you need to use another, older legacy set, which is no longer updated. The last version of this is 10.2 if I'm not mistaken.
The best thing you can do is going to amd.com, and selecting support and drivers in the upper right corner. Then click the green "find your driver" button in the middle. There you can input your card type and OS, and the website will select the driver you need.
