Crysis 2, Metro 2033 and Battlefield 3 perform aprox. the same with this 12.6 Beta as with any of the two remaining drivers. The only thing worth mentioning is that 12.6 Beta tends to dip a bit lower than the other two drivers, this can’t be good.
Now, take a look at the DiRT 3 graph and tell me if that looks right to you… I have no idea what is going on with this driver in this particular game. If you don’t know, DiRT 3 is one of the few games the bares the AMD logo and to see such a huge drop in performance, even if it’s just in DX11 is extremely disappointing. To be honest I didn’t believe the results at first but after testing in one other operating system (with the same 12.6 Beta driver) the results were exactly the same. Can someone that has DiRT 3 installed can confirm my results?
Despite the terrible downfall in DiRT 3, Skyrim performs better with this driver. About a 3.5% improvement in both minimum and average departments.
