the nvidia article mentioned that DX9 games could also benefit.

As with 337.50 Beta’s single-GPU DirectX 11 optimisations, CPU overhead reductions apply globally, benefitting the majority of DirectX 9, DirectX 10, and DirectX 11 games the instant they go on sale.

Bad comparison,

all dx10 games are rendered through the DirectX11 runtime on 7 and higher.

which is why I rate this over Mantle any day of the week.

AMD made Nvidia step up their game thumb.gif
post #746 of 1057
Yeah, but AMD did this same kind of thing three times in just one year during the 79XX series (CAP 12.2, 12.7, 12.11). Arguably the benefit by the very end (even just 12.11 alone) was more substantive and repeatable than 337.50 seems to be.

I wonder what else red and green are holding back from us... wink.gif

I think a really interesting question is whether the improvements from these drivers make the 770 and 780 equal to or better than the 280X and 290/X respectively. Back in Catalyst 12.11, the 7950/7970 hopped over the 670/680.

you keep believing that (wrong) story.


DirectX 12 has been indev for just over 4 years now, well before mantle was even though of, and within the same time frame that AMD LIED ABOUT THERE NEVER BEING A DIRECTX12

they removed that ages ago,

and no.

http://www.extremetech.com/gaming/180088-nvidias-questionable-geforce-337-50-driver-or-why-you-shouldnt-trust-manufacturer-provided-numbers

bench mark roundup, & bashing, all in one place.

They call NVidia out for using a 3960x in their testing. I checked their mantle article, they didn't call AMD out for using a 3930k & then reporting something like 70% performance gains... rolleyes.gif biased journalist is biased.

I'm wondering if it may have something to do with the recent Windows 8.1 Spring Update? Probably not but at least I'm not getting stuttering biggrin.gif WOO TO FPS GAINS

It may, i suggest installing the latest SATA/AHCI drivers.
