High Quality AA and AF
Our high quality tests let us separate the men from the boys and the ladies from the girls. If the cards weren't struggling before, they will start to now.
HD 5870 We see a really nice boost to performance under Far Cry 2.
HD 5970 We see a really nice boost to performance under Far Cry 2.
This is a driver set that carries with it some nice performance promises. While we don't see all of them for the simple fact that we don't test all the programs that are mentioned in the release notes, you can see in our line up some nice gains are seen across the board nonetheless.
The stand out is no doubt AA performance under Far Cry 2. Not to take anything away from the AMD driver team, but this driver was a lot better than I expected. To be honest I figured AMD would be so busy with the launch of the new HD 6000 series that the HD 5000 series might've gotten a little bit left out.
I'm not sure how we're going go next month with another launch from AMD, but I don't think we'll be seeing the same kind of gains. Come the 10.12 December release, though, and the driver team normally has some holiday goodies in store for us. Time will tell. For now, though, enjoy the free extra FPS!
