Interesting in the fact that both AMD and NVIDIA has problems with Skyrim when it comes to SLI/Crossfire. Though in the case of SLI, NVIDIA did do a bit better on Skyrim then AMD.
Still, it's nice that both companies are trying all that they can to boost the performance of both games for those cards. Battlefield 3 included since it feels like we've had tons of drivers for the Beta and now we're getting an onslaught of drivers for the main game as well. I mean we're customers, we've payed for these cards and now they're giving us drivers that improve the performances of both games.
Even though they're both beta drivers, it's still greatly appreciated.

I really hope these drivers fix the issues I was having with BF3. My framerate was OK, but I had all kinds of weird stuttering in my controls. They did mention that it fixes some stuttering, I just hope it fixes mine.
"I have never been the least interested in role playing games. I tried it out once with Final Fantasy, can't remember which one. Boring like crazy. But lately every one can't seem to stop taking about Skyrim , it must be that good. I'm going to try out , who knows, maybe I'll like it."
"On the subject of driver issues , this is happening way too often on the PC side, the Game publishers and the Card makers need to get their act together."
"Who's at fault here, doesn't the Publisher allow full access to the game, to GPU manufactures for full validation before it comes out.?"
OptimusPrimeTime:"Who has at fault here, don't the Publisher allow full access to the game, to GPU manufactures for full validation before it comes out.?"
I don't think the fault belongs to either of them... Do note that GPU manufacturers have a hand in the development of games and also note that this problem dates back to way before Skyrim. It's only recent because the hardware sites reporting it are paying too much attention to it.
I mean when Battlefield 2 was released, it wasn't flawless. Both ATI and NVIDIA must have released drivers to fix certain issues in the game that weren't expected... And it's not like the publisher wants to face bad publicity on the day of release, they want their games to be as flawless as possible but despite loads of testing, one or two issues manages to pop out of nowhere, issues that they didn't even expect.
There is no easy solution to this fix, it's just the way the PC is. Only thing we can do is wait and see if the graphics card manufacturers can fix the problems that arise.
I love Nvidia. Never had problems with their drivers, unlike AMD and the 4850's I should not have gotten. Keep em coming Nvidia.
Props, going to download now :), just got home from a long day of fun! :D
I got the update the day BF3 came out and I have had no problems.
