ATI Catalyst 7.8 Performance Analysis

By: Shawn Baker | AMD Radeon Drivers in Software | Posted: Aug 14, 2007 4:00 am

Final Thoughts


Talk about one extreme to the other - the 7.7driver set did very little for us in just about every way but the 7.8 drivers have knocked the ball out of the court. These are an absolutely fantastic driver for anyone who has or is thinking about adopting a new HD 2600 card from AMD.


This could be the driver we need to get the performance up and above the Nvidia competition. We will be looking at this shortly in separate articles as the HD 2600 review samples are piling up and it's time to see what they can really do.


Something else that is worth noting that wasn't mentioned was the fact that this driver includes full support for the HD 2400 XT, we would have tested the card but with the 7.7 drivers not supporting it, we didn't really have the opportunity, we will look at it though next month.


A great driver from AMD and the chances are you will find yourself upgrading straight away, at least you should!


Until next month, Happy Gaming!
