    Here is my updated Catalyst Comparison with Catalyst 4.5 and 4.6.

    Catalyst Comparison 3.0 - 4.6

    I added an Image Quality Comparison of all Catalysts from 3.0 to 4.6 with some interesting results ;)

    Ahh, looks great! seems like the 4.6 are closing in one the performance of the 3.8s/3.9s (w/o the crashing issue those had in Call of Duty for instance) :). So, this one has the new Control Panel?? sweet, time for a new driver methinks ^^

    edit: no new CP then.. ah well, hope for the next release ;)

    No new control panel here (except for a new icon in the system tray... which is way to small imho)

    Overall they seem pretty good as always... :)

    that stinks. :(

    Be sure to post back if you solve this issue, such an issue is enough to stop me from even thinking of upgrading.

    I see they mention the gamma/brightness issue. Does this effect UT99? I would be a vary happy man if the gamma worked in OpenGL in that game(Since Direct3D has messed textures in allot of places)

    I find myself perplexed as to why graphics drivers aren't close to perfect by now, I always lived with the impression that the APIs (DX & OGL) would make graphics work the same way... or are all the game graphics programmers just tools?
