Nvidia releases its second GeForce WHQL driver in a week
While we’re sitting at home playing video games, Nvidia’s team of software engineers are toiling away on new driver releases, two of which have come in less than week. Yes, it was a mere six days ago that Nvidia gave gamers its GeForce 344.60 WHQL driver, a release that was intended to boost performance in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Now you can download an incremental update to GeForce 344.60 WHQL, which is primed for Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Unity title.
According to the release notes (PDF), that’s about the extent of the upgrade. No big surprise considering the nominal jump from 344.60 to 344.65. Nevertheless, there are some minor additions and tweaks that go beyond Assassin’s Creed Unity.
As with before, there are some new SLI profiles to play with, including the aforementioned title plus Heroes of The Storm and Train Simulator. Nvidia also modified the cache size threshold in Ryse: Son of Rome’s SLI profile to improve performance and reduce stuttering.
Nvidia updated the 3D Vision profiles for Dead Rising 3 and Strife to “Not Recommended” and “Fair,” respectively, while giving both titles “Excellent” ratings for 3D Compatibility Mode support. And that’s pretty much everything – hopefully you didn’t wet yourself with excitement over those new profiles.
