Introduction

 

With a change in motherboards and a complete swap over in graphics cards, we are running a bit late again with the latest Catalyst release from ATI AMD. With the November set coming out earlier than we expected, they did come as a bit of surprise and caught us unprepared.

 

We have actually changed it up a fair bit this month but let's have a quick look at the latest performance improvement being offered from ATI (or should we say, AMD *confused*) and have a closer look at what we have changed this month.

 

Performance Improvement

 

A performance increase is noticed in Call of Duty 2. Performance improves as much as 12.5% at 19x12 settings and as much as 10.5% at 12x10 settings on X1900 Software Crossfire configurations. Largest gains seen with 4xAA enabled.
