As always, these are beta drivers use at your own risk.

Small improvement in fps for me, around 5-10 fps in Lion's Arch.

    hmmmm, let me know what you guys think once you've downloaded and played a little. I'd rather you risk first and I reap the rewards of your testing lol.

    Actaully I know most of you probably didnt look but this info was available on my launcher, it said that hardware issues detected at very top, and when I clicked it, it told me i needed to get 304 and I wqas running 301.

    But the thread is about 306. I actually already had the 304s. The 306s gave me, literally, 12 more FPS in metrica province in this place I always use to test my FPS.

    Was available on my as well during Launch (12am Midnight Aug 25) v304.  But a new set of beta drivers came out today (v306) which is what this post is pointing to.

    Uncertain if the launcher will pick that up this soon (will find out when I get home).

    Good to hear, what temperature does your card get  while playing the game, I have the same card so I'm trying to make comparisons. I was also running the game at 80 average fps in all areas so I'm looking forward to see what improvement it will make.

    Remember... all I'm offering is the truth. Nothing more.

    Well I am not a computer savvy person, but none of the beta drivers have helped me get above 30 FPS on med settings. I have tried both beta drivers and my FPS is all over the place but I stay mostly around 30 FPS although I have gotten up to 60. I was reading massive increases for others so it makes me wonder where I am going wrong.  I am pretty sure it is my pc though.

    Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q8200 2.33 GHz

    Nvida GTS 450

    8 gigs of ram

    Win 7 64 bit OS

    Hope others are seeing good results as well.

    I'm seeing a phenomenal performance boost with these drivers on a GTX 460SE. My fps used to fluctuate between 30-60, now it almost never drops bellow 50 even with everything set to max. Right now it's at 85 fps.

    Turn off vsync, if you haven't already.

    drivers do give an improvement on my system with my 670.. i can now run supersampling without the constant fps spikes i was getting before so Im happy:)

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    Do these have any improvements over the 305.67 drivers?

    Funny enough did I get those an hour or so before you posted this because I just randomly decided to get new drivers and the regular ones seemed old. :)
