ATI Catalyst 9.2 Delivers Nice Performance Boost
 
The Catalyst 9.2 RC1 doesn't just get rid of the criticized AF bug, but also accelerates the formerly affected Crysis Warhead by up to 35 percent - at a better visual quality. Thus the Radeon HD 4870/1G is on the same level as the more expensive Geforce GTX 285! Furthermore Call of Duty: World at War (dt.) runs faster, too: The Catalyst 9.2 RC1 accelerates the game by about 0 percent compared to the Catalyst 8.12 WHQL - we didn't notice a degradation of the visual quality.

As Stalker: Clear Sky is regarded things aren't that bright though: Due to the multi-core optimizations AMD was able to increase the performance in version 1.5.07, but with the current version 1.5.08 the performance stays on the same level. AMD and developer GSC Gameworld are already working on a new patch that is supposed to increase the performance again.

With the Catalyst 9.2 RC1 AMD scored a big point. We recommend that you install the Catalyst 9.2 if you play Crysis Warhead or Call of Duty: World at War
