AMD critics have sounded the alarm on what they believe is a diminishing level of support for the company’s last-generation (RDNA 2) Radeon cards. Florin Musetoiu, a YouTuber who runs the Beards & Chips channel, took to Twitter today to point out that AMD hasn’t released a new driver for Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards since AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition 22.11.2—a package that launched nearly two months ago on December 2, 2022 (although some say it was actually available as early as November), featuring support for The Callisto Protocol, Need for Speed Unbound, and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s next-gen update. The discovery has prompted Musetoiu to make the claim that Radeon has “aged like milk.”

From a Wccftech report:

To name them, the last graphics driver that was actually released for the RDNA 2-based Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards was the 22.11.12 which was made for a November release. Then, AMD’s Radeon RX 7900 graphics cards launched in December, and guess what? All four graphics drivers, 2 in December and two in January (2023) have been exclusive to the RDNA 3 architecture. These are the driver releases over the past two months:

  • AMD Radeon Software 23.1.2 (RX 7900 Only) – 24th January
  • AMD Radeon Software 23.1.1 (RX 7900 Only) – 12th January
  • AMD Radeon Software 22.12.2 (RX 7900 Only) – 21st December
  • AMD Radeon Software 22.12.1 (RX 7900 Only) – 13th December
  • AMD Radeon Software 22.11.2 (RX 6000) – 1st December
