Final Thoughts


Last month we saw some serious dramas with the HD 4850 and the Catalyst 9.5, but this month that seems to be all gone with some good gains being seen for the mid-range card.


As for the other cards we tested, there isn't a whole lot happening. At some points we see a slight increase while other times a slight drop, but for the most part there isn't a whole lot going on.


If you've a HD 4850 and have moved to the 9.5s, upgrade to the 9.6s straight away. And even if you're a 9.4 user, we would recommend the move to the new driver as it's always best to be up to date so you can take advantage of the latest bug fixes which are always one of the most important aspects of a new driver release.


Until next month, happy gaming and benchmarking.
