Enemy Territory: Quake Wars
The only game in our today’s test session using OpenGL not just failed to benefit from the new driver, but even lost a bit of speed in some cases. And although the average performance didn’t drop by more than 3.5% in the very worst case, this is overall very alarming news.
ATI didn’t promise Catalyst 9.2 to bring any changes to Fallout 3 game and our tests proved that it was indeed so. Only in 2560x1600 the average performance of Radeon HD 4870 1GB increased by about 2.5%. In all other cases the difference between Catalyst 9.1 and 9.2 didn’t exceed 1.5%, which is totally within the measuring error for the manual method using Fraps.
