New AMD/ATI Drivers

AMD Support & Drivers now offers new version 12.6 Catalyst reference drivers for AMD/ATI graphics cards as well as beta version 12.7 drivers. Here's word: "AMD Catalyst 12.6 represents a significant milestone in AMDís driver development and planning. The list of resolved issues at the end of this email is certainly representative of our continued investment in quality, but itís symbolic of a deeper systemic change. The truth is that our new driver cadenceóreleasing drivers as neededógives us tremendous flexibility to provide releases that are worth upgrading to. By this I mean that youíll begin to see meatier updates, with a single driver containing a number of fixes and enhancements that could have been deployed over several releases with our old schedule. "

So, let's get some opinions in here of the 'real world' improvements. I'm curious if anyone sees any kind of speed enhancements with older cards, like my HD5770

I'll be getting a huge real world improvement over my HD5870 soon when I buy a 670GTX. I was a huge Nvidia fanboy since my GeForce2, and the 5870 was the first time I deviated. Despite what an awesome card it is/was, I think I'll be going back to Nvidia.

An aside, whatever happened to hardware roundup reviews? You know, when reviewers would get 10+ pieces of the same hardware from different vendors and pit them against each other to find out which was the best bang for the buck, highest performing, most stable, what have you. They seem to be non-existent these days.

Tom's Hardware always has the latest graphic card info.
