13.4 vs 13.5 beta driver?

Finally finished my system yesterday (yay!), and I installed the 13.4 drivers to go with my Sapphire 7970 Ghz ed. After playing a bit of Crysis 3 maxed with 8xMSAA with my card running at 1150/1600 (haven't messed with voltage yet), sometimes it runs fine and sometimes the FPS takes noticeable drops. Will the 13.5 beta drivers offer any performance increases over the 13.4 drivers, or should I turn down the AA a little?

Thanks!

The best performance improvement you could make is to not use 8xMSAA. 4xMSAA is generally about as good as you'd notice without studying a side by side screen shot.

Agreed. Crysis with max AA is extremely hardware heavy.

Ok, I will probably turn that down, but will the drivers offer any improvements for Crysis 3? After I looked around online I couldn't find anything saying it would or it wouldn't.

It will help if the drivers offered improvements. I don't know if that is the case, but it shouldn't hurt using them. Assuming no new bugs are introduced, newer drivers are always at least equal to old ones.
