We can see that there were some gains at the lower resolution in our tests. The reason for this is due to the fact that at the lower resolutions there can be more dependence on the CPU. With more of the CPU limitations removed we can see a gain in these areas.
With some good improvements in the performance department and the normal line-up of bug fixes, this is a good driver. If you've got yourself a nice expensive CrossFireX setup the chances are you're going to appreciate this driver more than someone who simply has a HD 4850.
With that said, though, make sure you drop us a line in our forums to let us know if you're able to see the performance improvements that are promised to us by the Catalyst driver team.
Until next month, happy gaming and benchmarking.
