Left 4 Dead
There is nothing to comment in X3: Terran Conflict and Left 4 Dead.
Lost Planet: Colonies
Catalyst 8.12 is faster than the older driver versions in Lost Planet: Colonies. I don’t publish the test results without FSAA and AF because they are almost the same as in the diagram above.
Grand Theft Auto IV
I used the following graphics quality settings in this game:
I ran the game’s integrated benchmark twice at each resolution, writing down the best frame rate out of the two runs.
Here are the results:
This is similar to the Far Cry 2 results. Catalyst 8.12 ensures a small performance growth. Versions 8.10 and 8.11 have identical results, and Catalyst 8.7 is slower then both of them. Talking about image defects, textures would disappear suddenly with every version of the driver. That’s an annoying bug.
