TRENDING NOW: AMD rumored to launch its dual-GPU next month, the Radeon R9 Fury X2

ATI Catalyst 9.7 Vista Driver Analysis

AMD has just released a new Catalyst 9.7 driver for Radeon graphics cards - we check out performance under Vista.

I had to check the Game.AMD website the other day to make sure I didn't miss the email about the release of the latest Catalyst drivers. As I expected, when I checked the website there wasn't a new driver. A few days later, however, and that email came through saying a new driver set had been released.


While running a bit late this month, the AMD team finally managed to get a new driver out. This month also saw the release of Windows 7 to manufacturers and over the coming months we'll be integrating the new operating system into our benchmark line-up.


Before we get stuck into the benchmarks, let's have a quick look at the expected performance improvements to see what's going on.


Performance Improvements


Crysis - performance at very high quality preset increases by up to 8% on HD4800 series products


Lost Planet Colonies - performance increases by 7-11% when 8x Anti-Aliasing is used on the HD4800 series products
