The new NVIDIA GeForce 285.79 beta drivers are now available to download. Recommended for all DirectX 10 and 11 Battlefield 3 players, the 285.79 beta drivers introduce three fixes that improve fidelity and performance. A Windows Media Center black screen fix is also included, in addition to new and updated SLI and 3D Vision profiles for a range of titles, one of which is The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
The complete change list is as follows:
  • Includes several bug fixes and performance improvements for Battlefield 3:
    • Fixes cases of irregular performance (stuttering) primarily seen on DirectX 10 GPUs. The fix improves the performance of both DX10 and DX11 GPUs.
    • Fixes shadow map corruption seen with DirectX 10 GPUs.
    • Fixes cases of black corruption lines/triangles with DirectX 10 GPUs.
  • Fixes black screen during playback using Windows Media Center.
  • Added or updated SLI profiles for the following games:
    • Aion v3.0
    • Anno 2070
    • Assassins Creed: Revelations
    • Bastion
    • Need for Speed: The Run
    • Payday: The Heist

    • Batman: Arkham City Updated Rating To 3D Vision Ready
    • Deus Ex: Human Revolution Rated Excellent
    • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Rated Excellent

Those who have originally tested your frames for BF3 I'd love to hear what sort of improvement you may have seen to verify what nVidia told us here

I know it's buried deep in the BF3 thread, but what's the way to see the FPS?
