New AMD/ATI Drivers & Hotfix

The AMD Website now offers new version 10.10 Catalyst reference drivers for AMD/ATI accelerators, which add Blu-ray 3D playback, stereoscopic 3D gaming support, and performance improvements. The new drivers are available as a traditional release, or as part of a new "Accelerated Parallel Processing" edition which also includes an OpenCL driver. They also now offer a 10.10a Performance Optimization Hotfix, an unsupported Windows 7/Windows Vista release with performance optimizations for systems with an Radeon HD 6870 or Radeon HD 6850 series graphics cards.

The 460 and 6850 are the new bang for buck options.

Oops, yeah, meant to say I have the 460. But less RAM. The Sparkle with less RAM was $50 (or 25%) cheaper.

And your example was terrible, price to performance value means weighing options based on application requirements and resolution/details.

No, that's what my example proved. People here are saying AMD wins the price to performance ratio. I'm trying to say they shouldn't automatically be given that. Yeah, you get more performance for what you pay, but that's on the low end. Once you move to mid range that changes, and I don't care what people here say buying low end if your price range is mid range you're making a mistake.
