ATI Catalyst 8.7 Analysis - XP & Vista - Final Thoughts

AMD has just released a new Catalyst driver for Radeon graphics cards - we check out performance under XP and Vista.

Final Thoughts

 

While the new drivers don't offer massive performance gains or anything like that, there are a number of nice little bumps on offer here today. With the fixes implemented in the driver, they're a good upgrade for most users. People who will be particular happy, however, are mid-range HD 3650 users who want an extra few FPS here and there.

 

There's no doubt that the AMD guys are extremely busy at the moment with the HD 4800 series of cards, but with the X2 just around the corner, hopefully it begins to calm down a little bit and the team can get stuck into the drivers and try and get us some more performance from the new cards.
