    38%, from the last driver set to this?
    Yeah right!
    This is a stabilty update, just admit it Nvidia!

    You of course can furnish contrary evidence after playing BF3 I assume ?

    BTW: This is a thread about an Nvidia release. Making disparaging remarks about AMD is probably just inviting a post flame war and the risk of being labelled a troll...maybe we keep it on topic, yes?

    BTW2: 38% improvement isn't actually that great a number. It suggests that Nvidia has a handle on the game/Frostbite 2. Note that quite a number of games quite often benefit from 50+% improvement in average framerate from a new driver set shortly after game release (see Shogun 2, Dragon Age 2 et al)
     
  5. AMD also released updated drivers that increase Battlefield 3 beta performance. DICE has been working closely with both nVidia and AMD regarding drivers.
