Battlefield 3 isn’t just a huge title for developer DICE, but hardware companies as well, who are already seeing plenty of folks upgrading their PCs or building brand new ones for it.
NVIDIA Preparing Special Battlefield 3 Drivers.
Both AMD and NVIDIA will have you covered with “special” drivers, meaning likely performance optimizations and few or no graphics issues.
AMD says theirs will be released sometime next week along with the regular update (11.9); word for NVIDIA is it’ll be ready Monday, September 26, a day before early access starts (everyone else gets in Thursday, September 29). We’ll let you know when they’re live, and also when the beta hits.
