ATI Catalyst 4.8 and 4.9 BETA Doom 3 Performance Analysis

By: Shawn Baker | AMD Radeon Drivers in Software | Posted: Aug 22, 2004 4:00 am

High Quality AA and AF

 

We decided to test using high quality 6x AA and 16x AF settings to see if the new drivers offer an increase in performance in this area.

 

 

The 4.8 drivers again seem to be a little slower at 1024 X 768 when compared to both 4.7 and 4.9.

 

 

We see again that 3DMark 2003 is a little slower with the latest release drivers.

 

 

We can see that the new drivers score pretty much the same as they did without AA and AF turned on. This shows that we are more CPU limited then anything else though they are slightly quicker then the 4.7 drivers.

 

 

At the lower resolution the biggest performance jump can be seen with the 4.9 drivers with the 4.8's being slightly faster then the 4.7's.
