    Nothing beats the smell of new drivers in the evening.

    EDIT:
    Hm, while installing, i've noticed it says my drivers are up to date (i had the 12.4 installed before from the other thread). Strange.

    Driver version can mean very little in a beta. It's possible some things were modified within the driver and the version number wasn't changed.

    Earlier it was giving a 404, so this must mean they have their webmasters working on it.

    Just a heads up, These are newer than 13.4whql regardles revision and compile dates

    also, 13.4cap1 is newer than the internals, so install it.

    Hm, despite the same driver it seems to do something. UT3 seems ridiculously smooth now. Even with 24xEQ+SS Transparency AA mode it was perfectly playable. Before, with 12.4 from the other thread, the mouse was all floaty and laggy it was realyl hard to play. But not with these 13.5 BETA. It's a ridiculous amount of FSAA for a single card, but still. Could it be the latency thing fix here?

    I have this weird feeling in few games i tested so far that fps did not change much but games seem to be more smooth. This is really weird, especially when i have hd6850.

    Anyway.. this driver release seems to be awesome.

    hasnt fixed the artifacts in farcry3, fps is lower than before, anti aliasing is absolutely stunning. i havent seen a jagged line yet and everything is extremely playable.

    testing a few other games, but so far it looks good for single cards!
