    Have you seen/read this article??

    Hey guys, I'm just looking for an Internet benchmark I think I was directed to from TPU that a History search hasn't pointed me back to. The benchmark article was essentially a performance comparison between launch day/first WHQL drivers for I believe Nvidia's GTX 580 and launch day/first...

    They're here. (The download is available through their official site.) Installin' and will inform of explosions, et cetera et cetera. Will particularly be checking for the Altitude fullscreen mode bug I found with the OpenGL 4.2 beta drivers. I doubt it will be present as this release...
