There’s a new version of catalyst drivers out – 4.8 – grab them here. For the last two years I hadn’t bothered keeping up to date with drivers as the old pc started to get long in the tooth. The difference between each version seemed minimal except Battlefield 1942 needed the latest drivers all the time – every patch wouldn’t work unless I upgraded the driver- never had that with any other game.

However the new pc has changed that. Not strictly true – Doom 3 has changed that. The mearest sniff of a new driver and the download has started. Except these drivers are 26Meg in size. 26! Bloody hell. Bloaty or what. My old drivers were around 5Meg. Progress, eh? Hope they are worth it – a 5% improvement in framerates is promised.
