yeah driver should work well - that's what I thought.

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.

I'm also not quite the fan of patching a leaky boat, so to speak. I like my software and components to work. You focus so much money and development improving dx11 when dx11 is going to be dead next year. Doesn't seem wise. It's like Activision still using the Quake 3 engine for all their Call of Duty games.

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.

What was your GPU utilization?

DX 11 will not be dead next year. DX12 isn't even coming until next year, at which point it will be 2-3 years before it becomes the norm.
DX 11 released in 2008. I would say 2013 was the year of fully dx 11 titles. That's 5 years.

In all games it was 98-100%. Skyrim would occasionally drop to about 89 but it also did that on both drivers.

Unfortunately that's just not so. It'll be adopted much sooner because of XBone being native to DX12. It'll benefit all users and developers across the board and rumors are that anything dx11-11.2 should be compatible.

That is AWESOME news.

I saw a 10% improvement on Avg FPS, but more importantly now my FPS doesnt drop below 24..

I made a post with screens showing my improvement

I think it mostly benefits those of us with older CPUs...

Seems like the 337.50 driver really did seem to boost performance in bf4 which I am happy about, only game I play and barely have time for that as well. Only thing is the game also has received updates since my last logs but here is my comparison on a gtx770, 2700k @ 4.8ghz and 1080p
