View Full Version : Catalyst 9.4's - Miracle 2K3
Just a very, very small newspost to inform all our members that the recent Ati Catalyst 9.4 drivers give a very nice boost in the GT4 - Nature subtest of 3DMark03. We are talking about increases of 120+ FPS, so don't forget to update for you next benchmark session.
Seems this "buggy" driver fast with new HD4xxx series and slow with old HD3xxx.
I did compare 9.4 and 8.9 with single Radeon HD3870@1039x2682 and i7-920@4600MHz in 3DMark05 (same OS/settings/tweaks/etc, only different driver):
Catalyst v8.9 = 31861 (http://hwbot.org/result.do?resultId=842576) (GT1 = 132.0; GT2 = 98.5; GT3 = 159.2)
Catalyst v9.4 = 27386 (GT1 = 124.0; GT2 = 76.0; GT3 = 139.5)
Buggy? It's final release, no?
Well known Nvidia Detonator FX v44.03 WHQL was final release too ;)
If Futuremark still cares about correct results they need to analyse catalyst 9.4 and search the reason of this huge boost in mother nature test.
Okay, got your point :).
I'm not if FM still cares, though
