    A history of improvement

    Now, for those who don’t recall, we launched the AMD Radeon™ HD 6870 with AMD Catalyst™ 10.9. Here in our labs, we pitted that combination against the same GPU and the AMD Catalyst™ 11.4 Preview Driver and came up with the results below. Your experience will vary based on your resolution, system configuration and other settings, but we’re pretty excited about the possibilities.

    •Up to 70% performance improvement in Civilization V
    •Up to 49% performance improvement in Call of Duty: Black Ops
    •Up to 12% performance improvement in F1 2010
    •Up to 21% performance improvement in Wolfenstein MP
    •Up to 15% performance improvement in Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X
    •Up to 17% performance improvement in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat
    •Up to 28% performance improvement in Metro 2033
    •Up to 33% performance improvement in Left 4 Dead 2
    •Up to 26% performance improvement in FarCry 2
    •Up to 22% performance improvement in Batman: Arkham Asylum
    •Up to 18% performance improvement in Aliens vs. Predator
    But owners of the AMD Radeon™ HD 6870 aren’t the only ones who will see performance improvements. The entire AMD Radeon™ HD 6800 and HD 6900 Series should similarly benefit from the work we have put into their drivers since launch.

    By now you’re probably wondering how the Preview Driver stacks up against our most recent release, AMD Catalyst™ 11.2. We raised our baseline image quality in 11.2, so the performance improvements going to the 11.4 Preview should be pretty small, right? Wrong. Based on various configurations, resolutions and settings, our internal data still shows pretty amazing improvements!

    •Up to 23% performance improvement in Aliens vs. Predator
    •Up to 22% performance improvement in Batman: Arkham Asylum
    •Up to 15% performance improvement in Battleforge
    •Up to 72% performance improvement in Civilization V
    •Up to 59% performance improvement in Call of Duty: Black Ops
    •Up to 26% performance improvement in FarCry 2
    •Up to 35% performance improvement in Lost Planet 2
    •Up to 30% performance improvement in Metro 2033
    •Up to 11% performance improvement in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat
    •Up to 19% performance improvement in Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena
    And one more thing: the AMD Catalyst™ 11.4 Preview Driver (and its official release in April) is only the first in a series of planned drivers that we hope will provide even more performance throughout 2011.

    I have a new 6870 coming soon for review. I'll run the new drivers and see if there is a big boost in Black Ops, F1 2010, Pripyat, and HAWX 2.
