Manufacturer: AMD





To be honest, I don't even have to look at the performance of these drivers to recommend them. If you saw our article regarding upcoming features the other day called Future ATI Catalyst Drivers - Why you should be excited!, you'll know why you should upgrade if there's even no performance upgrades this month.


Fortunately, outside the fancy new features that the ATI driver team has given us, there are some performance improvements. So let's have a quick look at them before checking out our testbed and getting stuck into the performance numbers.


- Performance Improvements


DiRT 2 - Overall performance improves up to 8% on ATI Radeon™ HD 5970, ATI Radeon™ HD 5800 series, and ATI Radeon™ HD 5700 series products


Battleforge - CrossFire ATI Radeon™ HD 5870 performance improves up to 6%


Unigine Heaven - DirectX 9 CrossFire performance has improved significantly on ATI Radeon™ HD 5700 and ATI Radeon™ HD 5800 series products


The Chronicles of Riddick - Assault on Dark Athena - Overall performance on ATI Radeon™ HD 5970 improves up to 4%
