NVIDIA GeForce 310.64 Beta Spotted in the Wild

Just as enthusiasts are beginning to test their hardware with Far Cry 3, and the GPU-toasting visual marvel that it is, NVIDIA released a driver specifically for it. Although intended for testers, the driver made its way onto the NVIDIA website. According to the change-log posted by them, the GeForce 310.64 beta enhances performance on Far Cry 3 by as much as 38 percent, in addition to all the performance enhancements and bug fixes being trickled down by previous R310 series drivers.

Jeeeez 3 drivers in almost as many weeks. Seems like unusual behaviour from Nvidia when compared to normal. But the more improvements the better I guess. :)

It's good to see AMD and NVIDIA finally poking at the performance tweaks. It seems to me like we haven't had any proper (and generic) performance improvements for the last 2 years or so.
Though i have to admit that they've added quite some pretty nice features like MLAA2 and FXAA by NV. That also counts for something.

Already installed it but not coz of Far Cry 3 i don't like the Far Cry Series its some bogus type of game shitty if you ask me, but that's just my opinion, updated the driver just for the sake of updating.

Sucks that you feel that way. I have always hated the FarCry series, but this was, to me, better than the rest. Many people will say it's like skyrim, but i find it less fragmented than skyrim, feels a lot more fluid. The map is smaller yes, but all the same, this game changed my opinions of the series - there may be hope yet. 1 and 2 however, will remain terrible in my eyes...

I remember the day Farcry 2 came out so well. I was tempted, by the devils to buy it. Went round my friends house who just bought it for his xbox, watched him play it for 10mins, laughed in his face, and then went home with money not wasted.

But also might get a pretty nasty hangover.

Crap I had that happen to me. I invited my friends over and I was playing the game on my 360. I tried so hard to sell them on the game, saying stuff about the most realistic fire effects and what not, all the while thinking why I was playing this crap lol.

Those bastards didn't buy it, they laughed....they shall pay!
