But no wonder... because it didn't mention,

"Up to 22% performance increase Crysis: Warhead with antialiasing enabled" !!! (http://www.neoseeker.com/news/10407-...-beta-driver-/)

I just tried it and it works perfect. I had been bottoming out in the lower 30's FPS and now after using this driver I bottom out in the lower 40's! Average and Max frames are also +22%!!! w00t!

(I'd always noticed that Crysis was at least 15% faster than Warhead. I bet they just implemented fixes already used in drivers for crysis. )

I guess without AA on, the driver's AA fix aint going to speed nothing up.

Once again Nvidia is showing their Driver abilities. This is amazing if all the improvements are true.

Was already the with 185.65 and it's true. I tested it. It's a strange experience the game is running smooth now

I'd always noticed that Crysis was at least 15% faster than Warhead with my 280 and 295. I bet they just implemented fixes Warhead in this Driver that they'd already used in drivers for Crysis.

All I know is it's absolutely awesome that both games run at the same FPS now!
