Recently ATI released a new set of their monthly Catalyst drivers for their Radeon line of graphics cards.

We examine the new drivers in our usual array of benchmarks and come up with an answer if they are worth the upgrade or not. Radeon users read on!

High Quality AA and AF

 

All tests with were ran with 6 times FSAA and 8 times Antistrophic Filtering enabled.

 

1024x768 was chosen as it is still the preferred playable resolution with these settings enabled.

 

 

We again see an excellent jump in performance with the latest drivers.

 

 

Again we see that we get a performance increase in IDs latest masterpiece but while 35FPS is considered playable with it being an average you would find that it would drop to the 20s making quite an unplayable experience.

 

It looks like AA and AF will be left off for Doom 3 players at the moment (at least with the X700).

 

 

Again we see a huge jump backwards for some reason.
