ATI Catalyst 7.4 Performance Analysis (Windows XP) - Final Thoughts

Catalyst 7.4 release came early, but with only a single noted performance improvement, should we rush to update?

Final Thoughts

 

For Windows XP users there is nothing to write home about in the latest incarnation of the Catalyst driver suite, no doubt ATI/AMD is putting all its focus into the R600, and for good reason, it really does need to kick butt otherwise the company is not facing your standard uphill battle and will have to be able to climb a vertical wall.

 

If you are a Vista user and you have seen a performance jump in OpenGL based games let us know via the comments below. For those of you still running XP, our advice is to save your bandwidth and time and just skip this month's update.

 

Hopefully next month will be a lot more positive for ATI/AMD with the R600 release, fingers cross there are no more delays.

 

Until then Happy Gaming!

ATI Radeon X1650 Pro, (512 MB) AGP Graphics Card
