ATI has a new driver for the R600, Radeon HD 2900XT cards. It is called 8.374 and it is suppose to speed up the Radeon HD 2900 XT cards by up to five per cent.
With this driver the card will finally become a bit more competitive, but it will still lose in every scenario against the Geforce 8800 Ultra. ATI knows this, but it can't do anything about it.
Well, at least it will get a bit faster and it will help ATI to win over the GTX in at least two games, Splinter Cell at 1,600x1,200 with 4X Anti aliasing +16X Anti aliasing or higher and Need for Speed Carbon, at the same resolution or higher.
