If you're sitting there with your high-end ATI graphics card thinking that its time for a processor upgrade and not quite sure if its worth spending the extra dollars going Dual Core, we are pretty certain its safe to say "YES!", go for it.
We saw nVidia utilize Dual Core technology a few months back and now ATI have jumped on the bandwagon as we predicted. The X2 is going to sit very nicely under your Christmas tree this year and it seems as time goes on, games will start to make better use of Dual Core and hyperthreading technologies.
The only gripe that we have with the driver is the problem we have in Quake 4 with our X700 PRO. Massive artifacts made it impossible to benchmark but we had absolutely no problems benchmarking with the previous driver and this problem wasn't found in any of the other benchmarks. Please let us know in the comments below if you notice anything similar, as we're sure ATI will be reading and listening to your comments.
Until next month Happy Benchmarking, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
