Performance is the name of the game this month, performance increases are what AMD have promised with Catalyst 7.10. Labeled as the "Shoot em' Up Driver" we have a huge line up of improvements.
Unfortunately while we don't test all of the programs there are a number that we do.
You want to read this as much as I want to write it so let's not ramble on and just get straight into it.

Performance Improvements Note
We receive the Catalyst drivers before they go up on the AMD website and before the release notes are written. While we don't always get the opportunity to test the particular applications that are mentioned in the release notes we try to cover all our bases by testing Synthetic, Real World, HDR, OpenGL, Direct3D along with AA and AF.
If there is an application improvement that we haven't tested feel free to use the forums and comment on anything you notice.
