Best Driver for GTX 580?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Could you tell me what is the best driver for my GTX 580?

Also, I've heard that a recent driver release has added about 12% performance boost to the card, is that correct?

Thanks.

The standard Nvidia driver is generally the best to use (as manufacturer versions can be sometimes outdated) available here (just input your OS details and away you go).

As for your second question, I'm can't say. You may have to consult the release notes of the most current driver version to see which games (if any) have a performance increase with the new drivers.

beta drivers 266.35 are working pretty well for me now.. Would suggest you go with that until the normal are released.
