Catalyst 11.4 EP — illusory performance boost

Looking for performance change with RADEON HD 6970 and Catalyst 11.4 EP

Conclusion

The hope for new AMD drivers to actually change alignment of forces among cards springs eternal in the human breast. However, as we see — moving from Catalyst 11.2 to Catalyst 11.4EP gives quite an illusory performance boost. No miracle happened. Not sure, whether such changes, which amounted to 0-6% depending on application and settings, will be somehow interesting for end-users, but we really wish we can monitor temperatures of power elements on RADEON HD 6900 cards — this would be a very helpful feature in our opinion.
