I love how ATI is coming around on its GPU drivers.

lets how they keep the performance updates rolling, they have been consistently squeezing more performance out of their hardware with better and better drivers.

my Asus 5870 with cat10.4, I'm getting about P19,800 on Vantage. GPU on stock clocks. Haven't bother to update to 10.5 nor 10.6 yet. I will report back.
Hopefully I cross the P20,000 mark.
