New drivers boost performance up to 19 percent
Suffering from a severe case of the Mondays? Should you decided to blow off work and get in some extended game time instead, you can boost your GeForce graphics card’s performance in a handful of titles by downloading newly available drivers. Nvidia just released its GeForce R331 Game Ready driver (331.65), which is WHQL certified. Double digit percentage performance gains are there for the taking in select titles.
The biggest bump in performance applies to Sniper Elite V2, in which installing the new driver on a GeForce GTX 690, 770, 780, or Titan graphics card yields a 19 percent improvement. Here are some other examples Nvidia provided:
- Dirt: Showdown – up to 13 percent
- Battlefield 4 – up to 12 percent
- Metro: Last Light – up to 9 percent
- Sleeping Dogs – up to 9 percent
- Max Payne 3 – up to 8 percent
- F1 – up to 6 percent
Nvidia also added and/or updated several SLI profiles, added support for 4K Surround, enabled GeForce ShadowPlay technology, and enabled GameStream technology.
You can grab the new driver direct from Nvidia.
