CATALYST 10.7 PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS

Introduction

The 29th of July, how scary is that? - One month already down into the second half of the year and what a start to the back end of the year it's been. Really, out of nowhere we've seen NVIDIA bounce back with a model that everyone wants to get their hands on and while ATI at the moment continue to hold the value for money cards, when it comes to the high budget folks it looks like NVIDIA may have taken it in the most important category, the $200 bracket.

It's going to be an interesting second half and I'm sure we're going to see new models from both the green and red team. For now, though, let's look at the latest Cat drivers.
