AMD, Nvidia Push Out New Graphics Drivers Primed for Far Cry 3

Maximum PC: The wait is over, Far Cry 3 is here and available on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and of course our favorite gaming platform, the PC. To kick things off on a high note, both AMD and Nvidia have released new GPU drivers -- AMD Catalyst 12.11 Beta and Nvidia GeForce 310.70 -- that promise to deliver big performance gains in Far Cry 3 (by as much as 38 percent in some cases), as well as a few other titles.

my "old" msi n580gtx lightning is able to max out the setting(minus the Vsync) and get a stable 50-60fps in all the situations, so dont worry.

I hope these drivers will fix the msaa issue. i know msaa hits the performance a lot but in fc3 it's just too much heavy performance hit.

I know a few people have turned off MSAA completely and just enabled FXAA in the Nvidia control panel. Have you tried that?

Didn't really help the issue, to be honest. In fact, I don't know about other cards, but I'm running a couple of 560ti's and I saw almost no performance gain whatsoever from these drivers.

You always have to take those percentages with a grain of salt, in my experience.

Man, i wonder how crappy my performance would be if i used old drivers, seems like theres a 5-10% bump in performance every month or 2.
