I get that this new nvidia driver is for 600 cards but does it offer improvements for 500 cards? I have a 580 and am wondering if i can even install this new driver, or if it'll even work at all. I looked at their site and I have the latest driver for the 500 series (306.97). I was just interested in BF3 improvement.

I agree that the graphics dont look as good as the 1st crysis games,which are over 5 yrs old.The problem is that farcry3 was made for consoles(xbox)1st, which is 10 yr old tech, not the GTX680.So your never going to get cutting edge graphics running a game made for 10 yr old tech(xbox) on new tech(GTX680).Thing is crysis1 still looks better on a GTX8800 than farcry3 looks on a GTX680.Strange.
BTW Im runnig farcry3 on an i5 2500K proc and GTX570 vid card,on ultra,and Im getting 30-40 FPS.

What is there to prime when the graphics look god awful for today's standards?

Something is seriously wrong with your eyes. Seek medical attention ASAP.

I don't know, it just looks too cartoonish to me. Maybe its the lighting.

They're not going for photo realism; as did the predecessors, its right smack in the middle of Crysis (realism) and Borderlands (cartoony). If you're system can hack maxing out everything, i think it looks quite beautiful. I have to say, that i did expect more though, both from visual fidelity and framerate.

This is pretty accurate. It's not like Crysis but it's not too bad really given the size of the maps. We're running it at 2560x1600 on a GTX 680 and it's about locked at 32fps or so on Ultra.

I'm running it at 1080p with a 680 as well and I'm only getting around the same fps, with the newest beta driver so what gives Ubi? Might have to slot in that 2nd 680 that I was going try to hold off on till Xmas.

The key is lowering post and shadows a bit as well as turning off MSAA if you can stand the jaggies - these are not well optimized yet (if ever). I'm in the same boat as you and i will get at lowest 45 fps with everything else maxed but these items. Actually even with 2MSAA and those other two maxed as well its still pretty solid but with them on there's a bit of a microstutter.
