Comparison: WarCat vs. Catalyst Part II

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 
Similar to what I did before, I tested WarCat 6.11's against Catalyst 6.12.

To avoid bottlenecks, I brought my CPU back up 3.51 GHz. I ran FEAR and 3dMark03-06. Video cards are at stock speeds. I will test the WarCat 6.12s once they become available.

FEAR, 1600x1200, Max Settings:



A Single FPS in difference here, despite the deceitful chart which I didn't bother to fix.

Bottomline: Negligible difference in driver performace.

3dMark:







Again, mostly a negligible differene in performace. WarCats beat out Catalyst in 3dMark03, with Catalyst claiming victory in the remaining too.

The greatest disparity in numbers comes with 3dMark06 with a difference of 88 marks. Blah.

But numbers are numbers, and I've got to give the win to Catalyst 6.12's. Things might change once the new WarCat's are out. I'll post those numbers asap.


The Winner: Catalyst 6.12

I'm happy to do it. Alls I want is the best software for my hardware. I'm looking forward to the 6.12's.

If there's additional benchmarks I should run, let me know. I'll be happy to add them to the list.

WarCat 6.12 is not yet available. You don't need to be a member in order to download a driver. If some1 feels like saying anything about the driver, they'll just register and say what they think. Forcing some one to become a member in order to download something, is not the way to go and it will never be.
