    Hi there and thanks again for comparing new vs old ati drivers. do you have the resources to test those drivers on an older HDs as well? i have a 3850 agp and just wondering if there are any performance differences between new and old drivers.

    Actually, I do have an HD 2900XT. The issue with testing our oldest cards is a matter of time. It took nearly one week to benchmark this driver with three video cards. I was hoping to also include HD 4870 and CrossFire numbers but I ran out of time.

    I am covering CrossFire scaling in my next article which is due this week and I will attempt to add older cards into to the review after that one. You will generally find less performance improvements from new drivers for older cards.
