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?

AMD also released updated drivers that increase Battlefield 3 beta performance. DICE has been working closely with both nVidia and AMD regarding drivers.
