Battlefield: Bad Company 2 exhibits the most impressive results in our benchmark suite. Released one month prior to the 480's launch (and therefore available when each of these drivers went live), there isn't a single case in which we see less than a 30% performance jump.
Yet, the trends are the most interesting part of this. At 1680x1050 and 1920x1080 without AA/AF, we see a very staggered graph. We found that upgrading to 260.89 dropped performance slightly, though they were still higher than the initial scores (197.41). Once you get past the jump from 197.41 to 257.21, the four other charts show a fairly linear progression from driver to driver. Across the board, it's that first update that introduces the largest performance gain.
