New ATI drivers arrive

— 12:00 AM on August 1, 2002

Those of you with Radeon cards may want to check out the latest drivers from ATI. The latest version is supposed to be faster in OpenGL. Here's what ATI has to say:

CATALYST 02.2 provides significant performance improvements in OpenGL games across the entire RADEON product line, especially at high resolutions.

Up to 25% improvement in Quake III (1600x1200, Max Quality) Up to 35% improvement in Return to Castle Wolfenstein (1600x1200, High Quality) Up to 50% improvement in Serious Sam: The Second Encounter (1600x1200, Extreme Quality)

Hmm. Ya think they turned on hierarchical Z in OpenGL finally? Whatever the case, you can download 'em here and try them for yourself.
Tip: You can use the A/Z keys to walk threads.
