Correction: This is a driver for the GTX 600 series cards. The newest driver for the GTX400/500 series is still 314.07.

Bet you didn't even read the release notes :P :

"New in GeForce 314.14 Drivers

Performance Boost – Increases performance by up to 23% for GeForce 400/500/600 series GPUs in several PC games vs. GeForce 314.07 WHQL-certified drivers. Results will vary depending on your GPU and system configuration. Here is one example of measured gains:"

Nvidia has not properly updated its website yet, so use the links found in the article in order to download them.

I don't understand how the drivers aren't on the manufacturer's website but are on some random website. I'll try downloading 'em, but I seriously doubt they're appropriate for my 460. Even Nvidia Update can't find a newer driver than 314.07.

EDIT: Guess I was wrong, they work. Although I have no clue what improvements in what games I can expect.

@Buljo: The download links are from Nvidia's website ;). They simply have not updated yet the pages for when searching a new driver

400/500 series cards probably haven't been tested in benchmarks.

OMG 23% increace on sniper elite... a game that already runs at over 100fps. I'm still waiting for Farcry 3 to be fixed... the stuttering is annoying.

Plagasx1785d ago

I hope to god these fix the crashing issues with Crysis 3..

iistuii1785d ago

Hopefully for you, but I've been fine this time. I had same problem with Far Cry 3 when released, nothing worse than crashing in a new game.

SITH1785d ago

I hope these fix issues with mechwarrior online.

MooseWI1785d ago

Damn. Going to go home later and get this for my 670.

I wonder if there are any SLI boosts for my twin 660ti's.
