ATI Catalyst Drivers of 2005 - The Ultimate Analysis!

By: Shawn Baker | AMD Radeon Drivers in Software | Posted: Dec 20, 2005 5:00 am

Final Thoughts


It really is interesting to see what ATI can do with driver tweaking over the past year and performance has been amazing in some places. The latest drivers are fantastic as we can see the performance on a lot of benchmarks is quite impressive. ATI has really begun to make use of the Dual Core technology that AMD and Intel are offering.


The driver team over at ATI is really doing a fantastic job and a big kudos has to go out to Terry, Steve, Andrew and the rest of the team for what they can do with a bit of code. Just because the X1800XT might not be the fastest card available right now, if we keep getting drivers like we have seen in 2005, we have something to really look forward to with the next ATI enthusiast card which is supposedly due out in February.


We hope you enjoyed the article and learnt just what can be done with a driver. Fortunately we can now guarantee that this is the last driver for the year from ATI and we look forward to seeing the 6.1's though it might be time for that driver team to take a holiday as we can see they have worked hard over the year.


Until next month Happy Benchmarking, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all!
