ATI haven't seemed to do all that much with their latest Catalyst drivers but as you would expect they have fixed a few problems that have been happening and given a slight increase in performance across some programs as well as some new drivers and fixes for those using the Linux platform. With this said though they haven't claimed to increase performance by a massive amount this time around.
While the latest drivers aren't a huge increase in performance they do help with Half Life 2 quite a bit but with this said the performance we have seen from the 4.12s was plenty and well and truly give us a playable frame rate.
Some people will go through their monthly routine of updating to the latest drivers while others will simply choose to continue using there current drivers until some dramatic performance jump happens or some new and exciting feature is released from the boys and girls in red in Canada.
