People over at the guru3d forums are claiming some wildly increased framerates when using this new 84.56 beta driver. I myself am using it now, and I too have seen some signinficant in-game performance from Oblivion as well as in benchmarks (3dmark 06 went fro 6040 to 6275 just with the driver change) from the 84.21 and 84.43 drivers I had been using with my 7900gt.

Bear in mind that this is a "beta" driver, and your experience may vary, but most people are really liking what this has done. BTW, it is WHQL certified.

Here's the thread over at guru3d where they are discussing this driver's performance:

Let us know how it works for you. :)
