ATI Catalyst 6.7 Performance Analysis - Benchmarks - Test System Setup and 3DMark05

ATI weren't the only ones late with Catalyst 6.7 drivers for Radeon. As usual, we compare performance against Cat 6.6.

Test System Setup

 

Processor(s): AMD Athlon X2 3800+ @ 2.6GHz (260MHz FSB 1:1)

 

Motherboard(s): DFI SLI DR Expert (Supplied by Bronet)

 

Memory: 2 X 1GB G.Skill HV DDR500 (Supplied by Bronet)

 

Hard Disk(s): Hitachi 80GB SATA 2

 

Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2 and Catalyst 6.7 and 6.6

 

With the Radeon X800XL back we are up and running again with our X1K line up along with our older generation graphics card. Nothing else has changed and we continue to run our processor @ 2.6GHz.

 

Without any performance improvements being mentioned this time around we aren't expecting a lot.
