ATI Catalyst 8.8 Analysis - XP & Vista

 

Introduction

 

With the drivers coming in nice and early this month, I've been able to get stuck into the testing to see what the latest driver incarnation from AMD offer us. As usual, before we get stuck into the actual results let's see what kind of promises AMD have made for us this time around.

 

With new cards out and the year coming to an end extremely fast, it's time to ramp up the performance numbers so we can all sit back and enjoy a high FPS Christmas with all those new games coming out.

 

This month AMD haven't made any promises in the release notes, which is interesting as there have been rumors of big Crossfire improvements coming over the past month. With that said, though, they are just rumors, so you can't really take them for gospel. What there is in the release notes, though, is a mammoth amount of fixes for games; so make sure you check it out and see if some problems you're having have been delt with.
