>AMD/Nvidia release new graphics drivers ahead of BF3 beta

>Nvidia and AMD have both released new beta graphics drivers ahead of the Battlefield 3 open beta, so make sure to read on and update your drivers before you hop on the beta in order to get the best experience.

For Nvidia owners, the new 285.38 beta driver supposedly increase Battlefield 3 beta performance by 38% compared to prior drivers. You can check out the official article from Nvidia here, or grab the direct downloads below:

For AMD owners, the new Catalyst 11.10 preview driver also touts performance improvements. AMD doesn’t allow direct linking to their driver downloads, so you’ll have to head over to the official bulletin from AMD to grab the new driver.
