I noticed a constant 10 fps improvement in HL2 but for some it might only be 1-5 fps.

But there seems to be a bug with the 4.12 about texture optimization but you have to REALLY look to notice it.

Anyways here:

Some people find the 4.11s better though...it really depends on what games you play and etc. You should read the release notes as it documents all the driver optimizations.

4.12 is touted as the HL2 driver same as 4.9 was touted as the Doom 3 driver.

4.12b is the beta if you didn't know on that chart.
