Final Thoughts

 

It seems that ATI are going to become very aggressive on the driver front over the next few months thanks to the release of their new baby. It is nice to see a driver release which brings with it some more performance. We saw large performance increases with 5.9 over 5.8 and we are pleased to see even more boosts in performance this month.

 

We understand that ATI do release drivers monthly and it is hard to get an increase every month but we have now seen two months in a row with an increase in speed especially for people who are utilizing cards from the X700PRO and above. Let's just see if ATI can keep it up, after all - it's free performance gains for you all.

 

If you didn't update to the Catalyst 5.9 drivers and you have a higher end ATI Radeon graphics card, we would definitely recommend that you take the jump this time around, not only do we have another pile of bug fixes but some new performance to boot.

 

Until next month... Happy Benchmarking!
