The main one being fixed here is Dragon Age 2 it seems. Not really gonna bother with these drivers since most of these improvements are for SLI and I don't have DA2 and im on a GTX 400 card so I doubt those get much love.

Holy jesus.

I have been waiting for you.

516% increase in DA2 is nice, although 516% increase over 10 fps is only... 60?
