I don't think a link to that file is of any use, as there will be many different versions for the different hardware and versions of their drivers. Apart from that it is part of the complete driver package and would be included inside that package.

Sometimes SIW can give you better details of your card:

Some PC manufacturers include a tool that looks for updates for their driver updates. All other utilities are either Spam or malware (in my point of view) or not free.

If you can't find a driver for your ATI Graphics card it is quite likely it doesn't exist for your OS. What card, what OS?

Check the link below, it isn't a driver tool, but rather a link where you can select the hardware and manufacturer you need a driver for, and then you can see for which OS it is available. It's the only one I think is reliable...:

As I mentioned above, I don't trust any of those tools, except maybe those that are direct from the PC manufacturer and are usually pre-installed.All others I have mistakenly triedjust bring you into a loop where either you are asked to buy a pro version (and the driver you are looking for isn't found, so why should I risk money for a pro version that probably won't work anyway), or a lot of popups with spam show up.

The SIW utility I posted above sometimes can help, but it doesn't look for drivers, it rather lists your hardware and once you know that the normal procedure would be to visit that particular manufacturer's site and download the driver from there.
