I don't believe it, so I decided to try it on my system. You can find the Far Cry 2 benchmark tools in your Far Cry 2 directory, for example : "C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\Far Cry 2\bin\"
- Core 2 Duo E6300 @ 2.33GHz
- Gigabyte GA-965p-DS3
- 2GB Kingston Value RAM DDR2 667MHz
- Gecube Radeon HD 3850 256MB GDDR3 @ Core 730MHz/RAM 2016MHz
- Seagate 250GB SATA
- Cooler Master Real Power 450W
- Windows XP SP3
- Catalyst V8.10
- Catalyst V8.11
- Run 1 :
To calculate the percentage increase, take [(Average Framerate for 8.11/Average Framerate for 8.10)-1] X 100%.
For Run 1, the performance increase is 5.52%.
For Run 2, the performance increase is 6.67%.
For Run 3, the performance increase is 6.93%.
I guess the claim is true after all, so be a wise person a download the new Catalyst v8.11 now~
