ATI Radeon HD 4870 performance evolution tracked

Posted on Sunday, January 18 2009 @ 11:25:24 CET by


X-bit Labs has taken a look at how the performance of the ATI Radeon HD 4870 graphics card has evolved since July 2008, the site has tested the card in various benchmarks and games with four different Catalyst drivers. You can check it out over here:
Summing up this test session, I want to note that Catalyst 8.7, the first official driver for the RV770-based graphics card series, did not allow the new cards to show their full potential. Particularly, the performance of my card is low in 3DMark Vantage and Unigine Tropics Demo, in Devil May Cry 4, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky and Grand Theft Auto IV. Catalyst 8.10 and 8.11 are faster than version 8.7 and equal between each other. And the last driver of the last year, Catalyst 8.12, indeed increases the card’s performance in such games as Grand Theft Auto IV, Lost Planet: Colonies, Far Cry 2, Unreal Tournament 3 (when FSAA is enabled) and World in Conflict.
