Definitely hurting from a PR standpoint. It seems to be pretty hit or miss from a performance standpoint on the top tier. I think NV would actually be trying to do more if Mantle was on more than two titles. Not to mention that A.) thief has been received poorly by most people, and B.) runs on UE3, which doesn't really require that much horse power to begin with. Nvidia definitely still has issues with BF4, but reports of "smooth game play" mean more to me than a gain of 5 FPS.

I look forward to the WHQL release of this driver.

People keep saying that this "is for the top tier" which I don't really agree with. People with older CPUs are seeing larger performance gains than those of us with ivy/haswell 4 cores, & sandy 6 cores.

Definitely one of the biggest Nvidia driver releases to date.
Aimed at higher-end rigs or SLI'ed rigs.

Helps 6 nd 7 series cards.
5 series seems to not really be effected.

It actually helped my 560Ti in BF4 very much when paired with an older Athlon but my FX didn't feel any different. BF4 was never so smooth on that Athlon though biggrin.gif it's not a placebo. FC3 was totally unaffected as well but that game has been pegged at 99% gpu usage anyway.

No real gains in FFXIV but I think it still runs off of 32 bit. Here's hoping the 64 bit patch will bring better performance in hub towns.

Far Cry 3 is definitely GPU bound, depending your CPU. Sandybridge & up w/ a 4.2+ OC should lead to a pretty much GPU bound scenario 99% of the time.

Tried Planetside 2 all Ultra except for flora and some shadows on my current system. Went from 100+vs100+ battles only getting 50-80fps to never dropping below 100fps average of 125fps, made the gameplay extremely smooth and my 144hz monitor absolutely loves it.

That's a mobile kepler, it should work with this driver nicely.

This has been happening to me as well. But not only did 337.50 driver do this. 335.xx did that to me as well. thinking.gif
I still prefer 332.xx driver the best.

Did about 7 benchmark sessions with FRAPS frametime, fps etc of a few of the games they listed in the driver details (Sniper Elite, Hitman, Tomb Raider, Sleeping dogs, Metro LL, Far Cry 3, Skyrim) before and after the new "wonder driver". All I can say is that with my GTX 780 at stock, it does the sum total of nothing. I will upload the FRAPS bench viewer images in a little.

The games that have a built in benchmark are extremely easy to tell just how little this new driver does. Maybe a gain of 2% fps but that's within the margin of error. Skyrim lost 1 average FPS and even though it has no built-in benchmark, I recorded my run with a video camera and then did the exact same thing again. So much for 25%. Hitman gained about 2 fps but again, within the margin of error. Sleeping dogs gained about 1.5fps.which is nice but it's no 23% (I realize it says "up to" but come on...that was maybe 2%). Metro last light was within 0.2fps of each other, so again nothing there. Sniper Elite v2 was the one game where I actually saw a 3fps increase, which equals about 5-7%. Tomb raider lost 2 fps, but that is also within the margin of error.

I did a complete uninstall and erase of the driver, and a new clean install of the wonder driver. I am running windows 8.1.

This driver isn't bad by any means and anytime there's a new driver that isn't broken I am happy. But it seems their quoted gains are a bit outlandish. They should really specify what cards exactly that we see these gains from. I plan on going back tomorrow and re-doing them all as well as testing things such as splinter cell, battlefield, metro 2033, titanfall etc with another clean sweep of the driver.
