Catalyst 10.3a Preview Driver Download

AMD’s very own Catalyst Maker, Terry Makedon has informed the world at large about the performance increases in the new Catalyst 10.3a drivers.

Releasing them slightly ahead of schedule the WHQL Catalyst 10.3 drivers these new sets are promising some incredible performance increases and are available to download from March 17th 2010. Not only that, the Catalyst 10.3 drivers have some important updates for Crossfire X and the 5970 scheduled – AMD have been busy these past few weeks.

Write Assignment For You Why would AMD be making such a noise about these drivers and what is the significance of releasing the drivers in a non-WHQL state 10 days early? Conspiracy theorists may think it has something to do with the launch of “Fermi” and the GTX 480/470 graphics card from NVIDIA on 26th March 2010. Many reviewers will be getting their cards about now to review in time for the launch later this month.

However even without conspiracy theories it is always a pleasant surprise when games get an added boost in performance from performing a software update. Here is a list of some of the speed increases:

Looking at the performance figures with some objectivity – the biggest performance increases are in Dirt 2 (a DirectX 11 game) and Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X with other games increasing in the single digits. AMD have not forgotten about their 4800 series customers either and have improved performance on many titles for owners of those cards.

You will be able to download the drivers here as soon as they are released into the wild any time now.
