Nvidia Drivers - 347.88 (March 2015) vs. 340.52 (July 2014) - A 780 Ti Test - FPS - Battlefield 4

With all this talk about how Kepler is being intentionally nerfed to make Maxwell more appealing, I was curious and decided to do a little testing.

I did all my testing with the 780 Ti, overclocked to 1200MHz.
All tests were run on an empty Battlefield 4 server, where I'd basically run from one side to the other.

The results show Kepler has at least gained since July of 2014. For reference, Maxwell was released in September of 2014.

Note - I tried to go all the way back to the beginning (to the release day driver), but the game now requires a minimum driver of 340.52.

Also - the much talked about Super Driver was released in May 2014. So these results would have come after that.

The first graph is FPS logged over time.



Second is the Min / Max / Average FPS of the above graph.

The assumption that Nvidia has done anything to hurt performance of the older cards is ludicrous and does not have any valid proof at all.

If a person compares the numbers from Techpowerup from their 780 Ti, 980 and Titan X reviews, you can easily see that Kepler hasn't lost anything.

Now if one were use the argument that Nvidia isn't optimizing as much as they could be for Kepler in newly released games, that's different.

We can't prove or disprove that.

Ya that's what I have been thinking.
This probably happens on every generation.
And it would make sense that the media blew this out of proportion.
