Default ATI Catalyst 9.6 vs 9.5 vs 9.4 Performance Compared

Yet another Catalyst driver released. This time it is the Cataylst 9.6 (8.62). Curious about the performance impact Catalyst 9.6 has on games, we ran 8 benchmarks (Some in-game benchmarks, some manual walkthrough) to find out. Although the benchmarks we ran are few compared to the scores of games out there, it should be able to provide a rough idea on how the driver is performing.

There wasn't any noticeable difference for 3DMark Vantage GPU score and Crysis Warhead when we compared Catalyst 9.4 and 9.5 with the latest 9.6. Fallout 3 and Call of Duty: World at War showed some drop in the FPS, particularly with the settings of 2560 x 1600, 4AA. The rest of the benchmarks, Far Cry 2, Mirror's Edge, Left 4 Dead and Deadspace showed distinct improvement over Catalyst 9.4 and 9.5. With more to gain and less to lose, we recommend downloading and installing this new Catalyst 9.6 driver.
