[Various] GeForce 337.50 "wonder driver" Beta release - Page 40

post #391 of 1057
wonder if ditching DX10 helped them get this performance boost.

my 550 Ti sure could use some love Nvidia or maybe make the latest drivers not crash or BSOD.

Anyone compared 3d mark or valley score with this new driver vs older ones?
post #393 of 1057
These drivers are very good. I'm able to lower my 3570k overclock from 4.8 to 4.4 and still keep steady 100 fps vsync lightboost in bf4. It seems like game is running smoother too. I wonder if they can get more performance out with next few drivers.

Going to lower the overclock on my cpu to 4.2 and see how BF4 performs with sli 670s.

What's the difference between the 220MB one and the 268MB one? I got the first one from nvidia.com and the latter from guru3d.com.

Also, the Drivers section on GeForce.com doesn't seem to be working for me for some reason.

I was really looking forward to this driver, but in my case, 337.50 seems to perform worse than 326.19 i have been using since the last year.

TF2 (ctf_Fort, empty server)

326.19 - 214 fps
327.50 - 213 fps


Crysis 1 (save game)

326.19 - 91 fps
327.50 - 91 fps


Skyrim (ENB, lots of mods, save game)

326.19 - 47 fps
327.50 - 43 fps




All 3 games are GPU limited with my settings though. I don't have any new games atm so this is all i could test. I did reinstall 326.19 just to confirm the 10% worse frame rate in Skyrim and I was back to 47 fps when i loaded the saved game. And I have also timed the loading of these 3 games with and without shader cache and difference was within the margin of error. All of them are installed on the SSD.

Also, there is a bug in the control panel where i couldn't select the Team Fortress 2 profile, it would keep switching to the Crysis 1 profile so I had to use the Nvidia Inspector in order to set the Ambient Occlusion. Oh well, back to the 326.19 for me.

do you have a custom fan profile set up?

I do indeed - fans hit their max @ 88% and 75% respectively. They can't go any higher - so I'm thinking of flashing the bios. To get them to 100% able fan profiles.

Here's my fan profile:




On another note - within the hour I'll produce CPU USAGE comparisons with HT on vs HT OFF

Could be 64 vs 32bit? Interesting find though

It seems that guru3d has provided active links to these new drivers at the bottom of the page.

Loving the XP love right there <3

I saw no gains in sc2 in this driver - and it seems to have broken NVENC in OBS, so i'l have to roll back to be able to use nvenc as i want to (was about to make a 120fps comparison video to count pixels and compare microstutter)

yeah I think one of them throttles - realised this in heaven benchmark.

Just installed the new driver and I can confirm significant performance improvements in Borderlands 2 and Crysis3 on my 560ti. (rig in sig / build log)

At 1650 x 1050, With everything at max in Borderlands 2:

Maximum frame rates did not improve.

Minimum frame rate went from 45fps to 57fps (ish) biggrin.gif

MAX CPU temps DROPPED from 36*C to 32*C

MAX GPU temps ROSE from 61*C to 66*C

I used to play at high / medium to maintain 60fps on my 60Hz screen. I'm going to max it out to see if I get any tearing or dropped frames with VSync on.

This is in general game play, running about shooting the walls etc. I'm off to do a proper mission.

So far - top banana!

Edit : Solid 60fps in game now.

Both are 64-bit versions. Only difference I have found is in the name. The 220MB one says english beta and the 268MB one says international beta. Haven't installed either yet though.
