Open-source Radeon drivers improvements -- affect older hardware?

From time to time I read about performance improvements in Radeon open-source drivers. Do these changes affect in any way older GPUs such as the Radeon HD 2600 Pro?

No they dont unfortunately as I run a variety of Radeon video cards.  Most of the improvements/enhancements are exclusive to newer hardware.

Also as newer versions of OpenGL are released, drivers are optimized for those features, but older cards are left behind, that lack the ability to use newer features.
