ATI Catalyst 10.6 Windows 7 Driver Analysis (Page 8)

Manufacturer: AMD

Final Thoughts

There's some big promises from the latest driver set, but we didn't see anything too exciting here. We saw a few gains, a few places performance dropped and a few places where performance didn't really change.

As always, drop us a line in the comments below or the forums to let us and our readers know how you went with the drivers in some other games that we don't test.

For the most part, this isn't a bad driver at all, which is nice since it's been a little quiet the last few months. I actually found myself upgrading my own rig with a HD 5970 to these from the 10.3s.

With a big list of performance improvements and the normal array of bug fixes, this is a great little driver. Hopefully you see some of the gains as we for the most part didn't really see anything.

Until next month, may all your frame rates be high and your games good fun!
