    The AO profile for Skyrim gives the same effect as the profile for Fallout 3. Too much overdone and dark-ish, at least for my taste. I personally use the profile for Oblivion — much better and subtle shading.

    The other thing for this new branch is that I think NV fixed OpenCL performance back to the levels from R270 drivers. Tested with SmallPT.
