ATI Catalyst 8.9 Analysis - XP & Vista

Final Thoughts


On a whole there's a little bit of movement across the board with the new driver set. We can see under Vantage the HD 4870 seems to have gotten a bit of a boost while in the real world the performance increase was only seen in Crysis.


The HD 4850 and HD 3870 didn't see any gains for the most part; in some places performance dropped slightly, which was a bit disappointing. This month again has been about bug fixes and there is a massive list which covers new games like Spore and Grid as well as older games including World in Conflict and Oblivion.


While the bug fixes are the most important part of the driver updates, there's no denying that getting some extra frames with a drive download is nice. Hopefully the driver team are working on a special fourth quarter release and maybe an early Christmas present.


Until next month, Happy Gaming!
