You really think Quadro drivers have performance advantage and better IQ?
Better IQ can only identified by a professional grade monitors running at true 30-bit. If your able to see some better IQ its a placebo effect

If you're already on the 285 series drivers there's no reason not to upgrade to this.
post #7 of 35
Hm, that's weird. Nvidia doesn't tell me there's an update available.

post #8 of 35
Does anybody happen to know what is the best driver for AMD cards to use with BF3 (based on the performance in beta maybe) ?
