As the month of public holiday's rolls around for Australia, we have a new set of ATI Catalyst drivers to test just before we take a nice long weekend off. As expected the 6.4 are their name and performance and bug fixes are what they bring to the table.
Let's have a quick look at the release notes before we get stuck into benchmarking.
Release Notes from ATI
3DMark06 CPU scores improve as much as 4.9% across all product lines
3DMark06 HDR 2 Deep Freeze (SM3.0) test improves as much as 2%
Call of Duty 2 improves approximately 1.4-2% on Radeon X1900 and Radeon X1800 Crossfire configurations. Gains are slightly less (1.3%) for non-Crossfire Radeon X1900 and Radeon X1800 products
FarCry improves 2-3% on ATI Radeon X1900 non-Crossfire configurations. Greatest improvements result from tests with no AA and AF
Half Life 2 improves as much as 3.8% on Radeon X1900 non-Crossfire configurations. Greatest improvements result from tests with no AA and AF
Unreal Tournament 2004 gains 3-5% on all Radeon X1x00 non-Crossfire configurations
ATI are claiming some small performance improvements in several games, so let's continue on and see how the new Catalyst drivers perform against the previous version.
