AMD Zone continues to test the dual core patches for Quake 4 and Call of Duty 2.

Also added to the testing is the registry fix for Nvidia drivers with dual core support. Results are interesting as to which GPU architecture gets a leg up.

Now with ATI's drivers with dual core support we see a much better result. Now we go from increases in the teens to approaching 50% at the lower resolutions. Then we see performance increase drop off at 1280X1024 and then at 1600X1200 we see an actual decrease in performance.. Read on over here.
