1ATI Catalyst 9.3 Analysis - XP & Vista

Introduction

As the first quarter of the year comes to an end, we see the latest incarnation of AMD's ATI Catalyst drivers being released. To no surprise, we have the 9.3s which carry some more performance improvements in situations where CPU limitation is an issue.

Something worth mentioning about this driver is that the Windows Vista driver also offers support for Windows 7. With that said, though, that the driver under Windows 7 isn't supported by AMD as it hasn't been fully tested.

Performance Improvements

Catalyst™ 9.3 brings performance benefits in several cases where framerates are CPU limited. Some measured examples are:

Lost Planet: Colonies gains up to 20% on 4800 series products, and up to 50% on 4600, 4500 and 4300 series products.
