Using old drivers on newer cards possible?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Would it be possible to use older drivers like 10.9 on 6950 2gb? cuz when I searched AMD's site for 6000 series drivers and clicked previous drivers it goes all the way back to 9.8 lol reason I ask is because I have stutter/jitter problems with anything past 10.11 on my 4870 I use to have a 6950 1gb but had the same stutter problems with it in fullscreen never did find a fix for it and sold it now I want for order a 6950 2gb dirt 3 edition card but i'd like to know if it's possible to use old drivers with it before I pull the trigger

I also get way better performance with the older driver 10.9 in newer and old games i.e skyrim,mafia 2 thumb.gif
