DAAMIT is preparing to release Catalyst 7.10 drivers for its Ati Radeon graphics cards. The driver should be available sometimes later this week. According to the list, new drivers will have a big impact on performance for both the fresh Radeon HD and yesteryear's X1000 series.

    * Battlefield 2142 Crossfire performance improves 5-23% on the ATI Radeon HD 2600, ATI Radeon HD 2400 and ATI Radeon X1300/X1550 series
    * Call of Duty 2 performance improves up to 6.7% on both single card and Crossfire ATI Radeon HD 2600 and ATI Radeon HD 2400 configurations
    * Call of Juarez DirectX 10 Crossfire performance improves up to 42% and single card performance improves up to 34% on all ATI Radeon HD 2000 series products.
    * Company of Heroes DirectX 10 Crossfire performance improves up to 80% on all ATI Radeon HD 2000 series products and single card performance improves as much as 31% on - ATI Radeon HD 2900 and ATI Radeon HD 2600 products
    * Enemy Territory: Quake Wars Crossfire performance improves as much as 23% on ATI Radeon 1000 series products and single card performance improves as much as 23% on both ATI Radeon HD 2000 and ATI Radeon 1000 series products
    * FEAR Crossfire performance improves as much as 16% on the ATI Radeon X1950 XTX, ATI Radeon X1650 XT, ATI Radeon HD 2400 series and ATI Radeon X1300/X1550 series        
    * Supreme Commander Crossfire performance improves up to 30% on all ATI Radeon HD 2000 and ATI Radeon 1000 series products. The ATI Radeon X1650 and ATI Radeon X1300/X1550 series products see even greater improvements of 82% or more.

The list sounds a bit too optimistic and we will have to wait and see the real performance gain with the new drivers. According to Guru3D it is still unknown if these new drivers will be simultaneously released for Windows XP and will the performance gain apply to XP. Nevertheless, this sounds good for the red team.
