While ATI are offering a large array of new features, there's no doubt that not all users will be able to get the advantage of them. The 10.2 driver seems to suit users of CrossFire while the 10.3 driver set is mainly for Eyefinity users and people who have a laptop that has an ATI based graphics card.
In saying that, we're sure that both releases will of course carry with them the normal array of bug fixes for games, be it for use with a single card or more. Also, hopefully we'll see a little bit of a performance jump here or there in some games as well.
Outside of that, though, there are really some fantastic developments happening in the Catalyst drivers. As an Eyefinity user myself, I'm excited about other Eyefinity users getting the chance to make use of some of these fantastic features on offer and for someone who does use CrossFireX, I'm excited about the features that the 10.2 will offer as well.
What this 1-2 Punch preview shows us is that ATI listen to us. They've added the features we want and to be honest, they've done it quite quickly with Eyefinity not being out for all that long.
CrossFire has improved drastically since its release, but it's clear that ATI want to take the technology to the next level and it's clear they're working on it now and preparing the technology for the future.
