Overall the driver is a bit up and down, there isn't anything to get to excited about. We wouldn't recommend you stress too much about updating to the latest drivers for performance improvements but as always if there is bug fixes and so forth and you are experiencing problems in your games using a Radeon graphics cards, do go ahead and upgrade.
We have our fingers cross that the ATI team at AMD will come out with some big jumps next month as it is the time of giving - giving more performance!
Last year in December we saw multiply releases and with the patch that enabled the ATI line up to take care of Dual Core processors we saw some awesome gains. We hope that ATI or AMD (whatever!!) can make full use of the latest and greatest processors and deliver us a nice Christmas present.
Until next month, Happy Benchmarking!
