If you’re planning on giving the public Battlefield 3 beta a shot on your PC later this week, and have a Nvidia GPU, then you might want to load up on the latest 285.38 beta drivers. They’re said to — next to improved overall stability and image quality — beef up the game’s performance by up to a rather significant 38 percent (DL them here).
They bring improvements for a number of other titles as well, including upcoming release Rage which benefits from improved compatibility and performance.
AMD has said it’ll release its own Battlefield 3-optimized drivers sometime today as well. Keep and eye on your favorite download sites for those.
