OK, I'll be on tonight. We will play conquest and rip it up. I'm a crack shot with the SRAW.

If some of you weren't aware of the new Nvidia drivers and/or my thread:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1480050/new-nvidia-337-50-drivers-battlefield-4-benchmarks-ht-on-vs-ht-off

Makes a heck of a difference for me right now - just launched NS and it's been super silky.
That said, did experience server lag, rubberbanding and the bandwagon of glitches with BF4 - but driver side - it's beautiful

Percentage Changes:
Avg (Average) FPS:
New vs OLD HT ON: +14.45%
New vs OLD HT OFF: +7.85%




Min FPS:
New vs OLD HT ON: +24.60%
New vs OLD HT OFF: +8.68%




Max FPS:
New vs OLD HT ON: +6.22%
New vs OLD HT OFF: +1.79%

so as i can see, mostly i3 and i7 users will benefit from this new driver? kind of sad that i5's dont have HT :/
post #22095 of 29735
Yeah I always used HT on my i7 and got about a 10fps increase on the average fps... posted this in the 770 club...

Those improvements are awesome!
Makes me wonder how much the Drivers hinder Performance?

Makes me wonder if AMD/Nvidia holds back performances and just release small performances once in awhile for PR boosts.

Doubt it - just like saying:
Companies held back mobile technology.
As technology advances, new techniques arrise too - also I feel that the DX improvements are NOT game based (as Mantle is) - but OS based.
Ie. they're built on top of the OS.

Going to see if I see any differences on win8.1

I didn't mean to say that the Drivers were purposefully unoptimised, just I wonder how much can really be sqeezed out of a GPU/CPU if they've just given it a 14% boost!
I had Kind of assumed that Drivers were already at the stage where further optimisations would be in the 0%-1% range! I never thought that a Driver might only deliver 85% of what a particular Setup can achieve.

oh, you were agreeing with me, I should read through a bit more carefully before posting a reply. whistle.gif

Depends on the spin. Arguably the new driver didn't really improve FPS that much, if you look at the MAX Fps possible, so it didn't really improve the capability of the hardware much.
However it did significantly improve the MIN fps. So it is more likely that M$ opened up DX a little more to the driver teams which were able to optimise the driver some more. So I don't think Nv are purposefully holding back performance. There is always room to improve software. It just takes a lot of time.
