    Catalyst 9.1 may add partial support for OpenGL 3.0, but it won't speed up or change anything that uses OpenGL, unless the software specifically uses the new OpenGL 3.0 extensions.

    One program that can use the new OpenGL 3.0 extensions is the newest version of Furmark (1.6.5). I tried it with my HD4870, and there isn't any huge visual or performance difference...
