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 big boost in performance under Far Cry 2.
HD 6850 Here we see no real change.
HD 6870 Far Cry 2 sees a little bit of a boost.
This is a great driver release; there are some nice little improvements on the performance front, but ultimately this driver is all about that improved interface which hadn't changed since 2004.
It's also clear that AMD want to bring more to us in the coming releases, which is great news. There also seems to be some improvements in ways we'll get Crossfire profiles as well.
Inside, though, the interface is nice and easy to use. We've still got that standard and advanced view and we're sure as time goes on little improvements will be made to make it even better.
There's really no reason to not get this release, so if you haven't already got it we recommend that you go out and grab it. For now I'll leave you with some screenshots from the new user interface.
I hope everyone has a happy holidays and next year we'll see you for the Catalyst 11.1 release!
