Methinks the days when driver releases were big deals that bagged you a 10% boost in performance are over.
... and thank God for that. I never understood why people think these performance boosts are such a great deal. Driver performance boosts come from one of two methods:
- Fixing slow code - this isn't a performance boost, this is performance being robbed from you before the drivers come out
- Decreasing image quality, ie. cheating. Both the big boys have been guilt of this
I'm sure ATi will release performance increasing drivers at some point as there is sure to be optomizations to be made (I'm assuming they won't cheat again) but that won't be a free performance boost, that will be a free performance decrease until that point.
I see these improve FS2004 - another free bug they've decided to remove. At last!
