ATI Catalyst 7.7 Performance Analysis (Page 8)

Final Thoughts

This is one of the worst driver sets we have seen in some time. Not only did performance go nowhere on our lineup of games, but Company of Heroes actually took a small step backwards.

An even bigger issue we had with the drivers was the constant random crashing when starting COH.

We wouldn't recommend these drivers to someone we didn't like, we don't know what's going on this month but the AMD driver gods have not been nice to us.

We will keep an eye out for the 7.8s over the next four weeks and hope that AMD have decided to extract some more performance out of the HD range. The HD2600XT is so close to being the mid-range card to get when compared to the 8600GT, but it just needs a bit more performance to take it over the line.

Until next month, Happy Gaming!
