CATALYST 11.2 PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS

 

Introduction

 

Being a short month, it comes as no surprise that the latest Catalyst version has hit us a little earlier than usual. As always, we'll run it through our normal array of benchmarks and see if outside of what AMD say we're going to see improvements in, there's anything else that shows us some surprises.

 

We won't drag this on for long, so let's just have a look at the performance improvements that are mentioned in the release notes and then just get straight into it and see what happens.

 

Performance Improvements

 

Call of Duty: Black Ops

 

- Performance increases up to 11% on ATI Radeon™ HD 5000 Series single card configurations with anisotropic filtering and anti-aliasing enabled

- Performance increases up to 4% on ATI Radeon™ HD 5000 Series single configurations with anisotropic filtering and anti-aliasing disabled.
