[Various] GeForce 337.50 "wonder driver" Beta release - Page 50

post #491 of 1057
Well i tested a lot of games on my 4670k 4.5 ghz and gtx 760 didnt see improvments in any game:( maybe like 1-2 fps most but that is within the margin of error most of the games i tested are actualy cpu bound so i guess 4670k is far from being a bottlneck even at stock let alone at 4.5 ghz
i hoped for atlleast 2-3 fps in AC4 so it dosnt drop below 30 at some areas though i guess that is just ubisofts lazy coding im not even at max settings and still droping below 30 in taht game in some places with a 250$ gpu an 230$ CPU.thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

It's almost like before mantle released when people didn't believe that reducing CPU overhead and CPU bottlenecks was where the performance was going to come from...

Mantle offers very limited gains in GPU bound situations.
337.50 offers very limited gains in GPU bound situations.

The situations where you have a CPU bottleneck are the situations where you're going to see more performance.

I wonder if we'll still have the same arguments being made when DX12 finally launches since it's going to be yet another way of dealing with the same issue. rolleyes.gif

so those who have in overclocked i5&i7 will not need this driver

Now, Nvidia comes out of nowhere with this driver, just reading a couple post, way more promising than Mantle. Nvidia for me for now on. Not a troll post btw, take it as you want.

Look, I'm all for improvements on both sides (I go back and forth constantly) but this is drivel. If you have a 290x why are you saying mantle isn't even that good from what you heard? Try it out yourself! I could not be more impressed myself with just beta drivers for it. It doesn't even have an official driver and two games are on it - that's good progress so far IMO for a brand new api.

If the Nvidia users even get half of the performance mantle can bring in real world scenarios I will be very impressed. I'm not saying it as a dig, I'm just saying it as a reality of a driver update vs a custom api.

I'll be uploading a video soon and graphs of my results soon. Results are interesting.

Looking forward to it. Thanks for taking the time to run some benchmarks smile.gif

Are we to assume you believe that Nvidia is only functioning @ half the frame rate as mantle in BF4 & Thief on comparable systems? (barring 500$ budget builds which have next to no bearing to 99% of the people on OCN)

Im running gtx 670 sli at 1440, all settings max apart from no AA and res scale down to 90% due to lack of vram, im getting 94fps average, minimum 67fps.

pretty sure rubber banding is from you and the server desyncing aka ur internet

I don't see how Bart can blame AMD for DICE/EA rushing a game to market. Mantle works pretty well from my personal testing and what do you know, it caused NVidia to suddenly improve their drivers to tailor to the existing DirectX 11.2 API. If Mantle wasn't released, does he really think the effort would have been put forth so quickly? He should be thanking them.

On a side note I love the R9 290 and 750Ti, so I'm no fanboy and never had any serious issues with either brand.

Not at all. Companies based on profit (not a bad thing) only do what they need to when they need to. Some of the earliest speculation on Mantle was that it would finally get NV/MS off of their duff's.
