Battlefield 3 performance boosted impressive 38% by update

DICE recommends Battlefield 3 optimised drivers from NVIDIA

Battlefield 3 is already looking like a stunner but when it comes to the Battlefield 3 beta you can squeeze an extra 38 percent from that bad boy.


Just download NVIDIA's 285.38 beta drivers, which are optimised for Battlefield 3 itself.

Don't just take our word for it either, Rendering Architect at DICE Johan Andersson is working on Battlefield 3 and recommended them specifically via Twitter.

Here's what the drivers do:

What's New in Version 285.38

  • Increased performance in Battlefield 3 by up to 38%.
  • Improved overall stability and image quality in Battlefield 3.
  • Improved compatibility and performance for RAGE.
