My System Specs

Default

In a nutshell:
Quote:
- Company of Heroes - performance improves up to 25% with HD 4600 series products and below as well as improvements of up to 10% on HD 4800 series
- Crysis - performance improves up to 13% in multi-GPU configurations
- Crysis Warhead - performance improves up to 11% in multi-GPU configurations
- World in Conflict - performance improvements of up to 30% can be seen in settings that were previously CPU limited
And Sky is right to be angry with ATi's driver team (Terry Makedon) in particular.

I just love how they go on the merry-go-round with 'fixes' that break other things. With ATi I can always count on them to release a driver that boosts future mark results. I avoid those like the plague they are because that usually translates to bugs/slowdowns in games.

I also appreciate their fixing of my X1950 Pro CF in which they recently all but dropped support for. Nice.

If you want a good gauge of ATi's driver performance tweaktown has a nice running tally. Most of their released drivers prove to be placebo at best. At least where performance was concerned.

So they should be. For that is why they were created.

Yep. I eventually even had to remove all the Ati software and re-install the 9.5's to get my AA back. The setting was there in the 9.6's on Vista x64
