Let's see.

PS.
"By reducing CPU overhead, CPU bottlenecking is minimised or eliminated, reducing its impact on GPU performance, increasing GPU utilisation, which is key to increasing frame rates."

I have to say - that's a lie.
it used to be a problem - but even with HT off - where my load would go to 80-100% - there was absolutely no FPS differences - even in firefight conditions.

Great job by Nvidia, but this wonder driver marketing......

But this actually does improve CPU overhead significantly....

You see very small gains in GPU bound situations (see anand review for example) but impressive gains in CPU heavy games.

These aren't your normal driver improvement aimed at specific new titles... These are across the board DX improvements that seem to be doing a great job so far.

Or GTA IV's in game benchmark, I know, not DX11 but the CPU overhead in that game is significant, smile.gif

I personally didn't expect fermi to benefit at all and they proved me wrong tongue.gif I am seeing solid 10-15% gains in cpu bound situations with the athlon.

Nothing breathtaking but hey, free performance and smoothness out of an ancient card? Yes please.

Im not getting much of any FPS gain on a 770, my guess is my cpu was doing just fine before the driver. Probly would help me if i had SLI

but being clocked at 4.5ghz instead of 3.5ghz will show you an fps gain on 1080p, no?

There's a wide range of games where clocking to 5g instead of 3ghz improves performance

yeah - I'm at 4.5ghz smile.gif

PS. "This setup with GTX 780 Ti in SLI is PERFECT for this driver. If you'd measure with a single GTX 760, the results would be minimal."

I think it's a bit of a hype-train if you ask me. Seems to be just driver OPTIMISATION rather than anything revolutionary.
Nothing "new" as far as I see in comparison to previous drivers.
Ie. older drivers vs newer one

I tested Crysis 3 and I definitely got higher GPU utilization @ 1080p FXAA and Very High Settings (I normally use 4x SMAA, but intentionally tested FXAA to be more reliant on CPU), tested "The root of all evil" stage. With driver 335.23 I was getting 41 fps in some part and 80% GPU Usage. Now I get 96% GPU Usage and about 46 fps. That's a 12.5% increase which is nice.
