lol, Quite clear that both companies are hoping to rake in big sales from upgrades to play Battlefield 3.

Funnily enough, neither company have said anything about optimising new drivers for Modern Warfare 3.... why? I can only guess the obvious: MW3 doesn't have any new technologies that the existing cards/driver's don't already fully support. LOL!

That, and who cares about MW3? BF3 is all the hype at the moment. lol

Funny you say that Klawful, At the moment I am sitting only around 10fps lower fully maxed out - so the beta is either not taxing the gfx cards as much as anticipated, or, it simply suits my card more than some others ( I have heard of a friend really struggling with GTX550's for some reason )

Te and myself where playing BF3 Beta the other night just after the server's where down for a while and our frame rate went from 55-75fps to around 90-120fps so it's obvious they have plenty of tweaking left to do.

Yeah, mine has jumped up to around 160 average. I think 2 cards is overkill.

The link from Tom's Hardware post is no longer there, found an alternative link that worked...

Unfortunately there seems to have been a technical mishap with the official upload, but James Prior of ATI support and enthusiast site Rage3D has uploaded it himself in the meantime.
