AMD Never Settle 12.11 Beta Driver Performance Testing
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (DirectX 9)
The Empire of Tamriel is on the edge. The High King of Skyrim has been murdered.
Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel.
The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons.

In Skyrim we see increasing performance advantages for the new 12.11 driver over the 12.9 driver going from 6% to 8% to 13% at 1680, 1920 and 2560 resolutions. Again, those are solid gains for the HD 7870 and does make it more competitive with the GTX 660 Ti.
