lul. Yeah they do, they gave me an extra 10FPS, however, they also MASSIVLY reduce quality, as in, tree's at a distance are in 16 bit colors! Example... ...Or maybe no example. No idea, but go through my screenshots that I've uploaded, and you MAY be able to find one or two. But yeah, they are worth it, but for me reduced quality of tree's at distance (not noticable much, but still there)

Index of /_img/crysis_screenshots

--EDIT-- Pffft. Of course thats my luck, there is no images in that folder that show the quality reduction, in that case *Downgrades drivers to provide an example image*

~_^ Ignore me lol, There is no Quality loss...Strange, I could have sworn there was... Can anyone else confirm quality loss?

Btw, I got an extra 15FPS, Now the game runs at around 40 - 50FPS with 2*AA and all high, shaders medium, OQ low, shadows medium, physics low (My CPU Sucks)

I swear by the 1.1 patch and the latest Nvidia drivers, in combination, they are guaranteed FPS increases.

I think just from the patch and the latest driver version compared to using 1.0 and the previous drivers [last ones before the current ones], I was getting about 20 less FPS, and I can definitely see the difference.

I do think though, that drivers could easily unlock more FPS...
