New Nividia GeForce Beta Drivers Available Today

Nvidia released today a new Beta version of its GeForce driver suite for the much-anticipated Battlefield 3 beta happening now. What’s important about this GeForce 285.38 beta is its timing, and what it brings to the table. Nvidia perfectly managed  to make this beta coincide with the release of the Battlefield 3’s beta, and on top of that make sure that this beta version of theirGeForce suite increased performance of the game. So not only are you playing the most highly anticipated game of 2011, you’re now playing with a 38% increase thanks to this new driver. Nvidia has been spectacular with addressing issues with their new GPU (Graphics processing Units) or Video Cards this year, and this is just another star on the chalk board ofsuccess for them. I am curious about what AMD is planning surrounding the release of the Battlefield 3 beta.

 

New in Release 285.38

 

-Increases performance in Battlefield 3 by up to 38 per cent – performance measured vs. GeForce 285.27 driver on GeForce GTX 570 at 2650×1600 (DX11)
