    Got it yesterday when they hit and YES they did make a difference for my gigabyte 7970gh edition card. I noticed slight improvements in the Crysis3 beta vs 13.1

    Unfortunately nothing was mentioned in the release notes about Far Cry 3. This seems like a smaller update, although it might contain a few fixes or performance improvements that haven't been mentioned in the release notes. I wouldn't be able to say anything about that though. 12.11beta/13.1 did have some nice FC3 performance improvements though. Do consider, this is still a beta release.
