The beta phase for Battlefield 4 will be starting tomorrow and Nvidia has released a new beta driver that is optimized for DICE’s FPS. As the green team suggested, this driver is an essential update for all GeForce GTX users jumping into the Battlefield 4 Beta, as it ensures maximum performance and system stability in the shooter’s eagerly anticipated pre-release test.
