That's weird, seeing how PlanetSide 2 is a "the way it's meant to be played" title, you would think they would market this driver around PlanetSide 2 as well.

I got a decent boost. I have a stock FX-8350 like the person in the steam thread you linked, and had similar performance with old drivers, around 60fps on Ultra. With the new drivers it boosted performance to 74fps on Ultra with SLI GTX 670. On fully maxed out settings 1200p, I get 45fps.

Or they could be seeing the effects of a unified rendering pipeline which had a few shared bottlenecks optimized out with the new driver. Gee I don't know.

My results:

~5-10 FPS improvement on 64-man Siege of Shanghai. I still have trouble maintaining 95% GPU usage, so there could be improvements.

My 337 Star Swarm run is 100% faster despite having more batches per frame, which is neat.

That must be true. I just fired up the Witcher 2 and set ubersampling from 1 to 2 and still getting 60FPS, where as before was getting mid 40's. My GPU doesn't even reach it's max clock anymore. Sadly I see no improvement on Crysis 3, though that could have been because my computer hung after blanking to black while installing them. Haven't tried FC3 or Borderlands 2 yet.

i dont know to me this is just a driver that some how makes your PC use more resources...
My 3930K is being used almost 100% on BF4 now... before it was just 40-50% and i have notice a gain on MIN FPS only

This drivers are just making my PC wattages usage higher, like 100watts more.

If anything thats the results of these drivers. If you are being CPU limited and have a CPU will a lot of cores it will make use of them.

And a gain on max is all e-peen; min is what counts in terms of playability and performance-related experience, especially if you are trying to at least match a 96 or 120 Hz refresh on 1440P+, for example . Tho your numbers kinda make me scratch my head there...40-50% sounds very low for this game in general and 100 watts is a lot.
