    These have the same larger shared system memory size like regular Geforce drivers.

    305.53 and 305.67 had 1024mb, 306.63 has 2816mb.

    So these are newer than the v306.23 WHQL drivers then but betas? I will install these later and check them out.

    Are there any release notes that detail the changes/additions/improvements since the last certified set?

    Ah, so these are a developer driver then and possibly using code that is older than the 306.23 WHQLs for some games?

    The last couple of dev drivers have worked very well for the 690,have yet to test these.

    Thanks for that info. Here's hoping the issues with BF3 are fixed.

    My issue with Battlefield 3 seems to be fixed. No more graphical glitching as seen with this POST. Granted I have only tested the Alborz Mountain map, I am hoping the rest of the Armored Kill maps are glitch free as well. I will report back after I have had time to test the maps thoroughly.

    lol
    It's in there, I don't think they updated the page properly for the new driver.

    How does one find out this info? I've sifted through several of the driver's files and never found anything about branch/version.
