New NVIDIA Beta Drivers Add FXAA

GeForce.com now offers new NVIDIA GeForce beta version 301.24 drivers, adding new gaming features and promising a performance boost in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Here's a bit on what the new driver family introduces:

With the release of the GeForce 301.24 beta driver, a high-speed, shader-based anti-aliasing technique can be applied directly to hundreds of games through the NVIDIA Control Panel. Called NVIDIA FXAA, this technique is up to 60% faster than 4xMSAA, and can produce results equal to or better than the ageing anti-aliasing solution. Furthermore, FXAA is able to anti-alias increasingly-popular transparent textures, as shown in our Batman: Arkham City Graphics Breakdown and Performance Guide, making it the clear winner in many of today’s games.

" enable NVIDIA FXAA, NVIDIA Adaptive VSync, and NVIDIA Frame Rate Target on all GeForce 8-series and later GPUs "

Is this from the newest driver release notes!? Or just things planning to be implemented?

Havent had a chance today to check out the newest beta drivers yet, but if those are all in I'll be upgrading tonight to check them out!

EDIT: D'oh, 2nd sentence in on the beta driver release page. LOL I am *very* happy they have gotten these things implemented for GPU's all the way down to the 8 Series. Fuck yes. Looks like some tests of this new functionality are in order tonight =) Hopefully now the only external program I'll have to use for video is D3DOverrider for Triple Buffering forcing in D3D games. (Still hoping they expand this into drivers, but I've heard it isnt going to happen because of policies on the directx side of things)

I love how they use the term "Frame Rate Target" instead of "Frame Rate Limiter". Marketing at it's finest.. not making people feel limited with words like "Limiter" around
