I strongly disagree here: it's by reporting such bugs that you can show
there is still interest in supporting such hardware.

I'd find it very disappointing if hardware as recent as that would be
already considered too old to support satisfactorily.
I can understand that the developers may not want to spend much time
improving support for that hardware, but it should at least stay about
as good as it was in the past.

That's why it's important to report it.
Since it used to work, it's probably just an oversight.
