here is hoping for not negative SLI scaling with this updated profile for Resident Evil 6

Nvidia also said that this driver would have a fix for the throttling issue from which owners of Titan and 6xx owners suffered, though I'm not sure if it is included or not

AMD update doesn't have a 20% performance upgrade with their update. As usual, they are left playing 2nd to NVidia.

how come i cant find these on their site, and yes im choosing beta search. also nvidia experience isnt finding them either and i have beta updates checked

EDIT: well i found them but they arent on geforce.com yet. only on main nvidia site for now. they will rob add to geforce and nvidia experience later today

Hopefully gets rid of the screen turning black randomly (but not that often) in BF3 on my 680... it's been a problem for me since 310.14. Downloading now.

I wonder if this fixes all the Nvidia issues with Tomb Raider, I had massive issues with the game freezing even after installing the new drivers
Nicolee  +   605d ago
strangely . if i am running at maximum clock speed of GPU will freeze the game ( it only happened with this game )i fixed the freezing issue on my gtx670 by decrease my core clock gpu speed -20 Mhz ( with EVGA precision ) . now run smooth and even better framerates as i overclocked my memory clock speed to +500 Mhz
MegaMohsi  +   605d ago
interesting yeah im running my evga gtx 660 card which is factory overclocked another +50 mhz and +300 for memory in precision, maybe I should try stock settings

ive heard of this happening with many games in conjunction with factory OC'd cards. its pretty odd

20% just for a software update? That's crazy and really hard to believe.
SatanSki  +   605d ago
Thats what you get for your money
Th3 Chr0nic  +   605d ago
