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.
