AMD has just released a new ATI Catalyst 8.3 driver for Radeon graphics cards - we check out performance under XP and Vista.

Manufacturer: none
IntroductionThe first thing we did when we obtained the latest driver release from AMD was to test out the Crossfire X capabilities with a pair of HD 3870 X2 cards. With that out the way it's time to test the latest driver in the typical fashion.We've got our relatively new test bed which is getting pretty accustomed to our graphics cards these days, along with our new and improved benchmark line-up to include more intensive games like Crysis.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.Moving on...
