Are Graphics Drivers for the Thinkpad Edge E520 going to be brought up to date?

The Lenovo supplied drivers for the Radeon 6630M installed in the E520 haven't been updated since early 2012. Meanwhile ATI released v14 of the drivers just a few months ago (mid 2014). The E520 is now 5 versions behind with it's drivers, and the ATI supplied driver is incompatible.

 

Does Lenovo have any intention of releasing a compatible version of the latest drivers for the 6630M or are we supposed to muddle along without further support for this piece of hardware?

There are other problems with the old drivers.I can upgrade IE10 to IE11 due incompatibily with this hybrid graphics driver.

I can't update the lastest IE10 security updates for July 2014 due to incompatibily with this hybrid graphics driver.

I'm sure upgraing to IE12 will fail as well.

In January 2016 Microsoft will stop support for IE10 on Windows 7.:
