Test System Setup
Processor(s): AMD Athlon 64 3800+

The setup and benchmarks are exactly the same as our last Catalyst Driver Preview so we won't delay any longer and get straight into looking at the performance we get from these new drivers as ATI have promised us some increases on the X700PRO and above.

At the lower resolution we don't see any difference yet at the higher resolution we see a little jump giving us an extra few hundred points.
