Default AMD raises graphics performance with second-gen Vista driver

http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/2007/0...nvidia_vvista/

"Markham (ON) - AMD today released its second Catalyst graphics driver for Windows Vista, promising performance gains between 21% and 48% in certain games. Nvidia also has caught up with Vista and recently released its first final driver for the new operating system.
The new Catalyst 7.2 works with all ATI graphics cards from the current flagship Radeon X1950 down to the 9500 model, with the exception of X1950 XT model. The driver is available for both Windows Vista 32-bit and 64-bit as well as Windows Vista XP."
