NVIDIA has finally released the driver that packs optimizations and bug fixes that provide increased performance for Kepler-based GPUs.
Finally! Hopefully this means I can get a stable 60 fps on Witcher 3 now
so much for performance increases ;-pppppppppppp nvidia. YeaH we get it we need 980tis for witcher yeah keep dreaming...ill just oc my 780 a tad more
Added 3D Vision support for about 10 games and then listed them as "Not Recommended"? Sigh, this is why it's been a long time since I've put on my 3D Vision glasses. Annnnd... Thus being another reason why I'm totally looking forward to VR.
Not sure if that's sarcasm at the end or not. VR will support 90% less games than 3D Vision...
Sarcastically truthful. How's that for a response. VR will have phenomenally better 3D visuals than nVidia 3D Vision, that is an absolute, undeniable given. Therefore, I'm assuming your comment about support is only for head tracking... Which is NOT what I was sarcastically hinting at.
Nice, DSR and some sort of motion blur feature, ile have to do some monkeying around.
Pretty sure that motion blur thing is only for GSync monitors.
Just in time for my GSync monitor to arrive tomorrow :D
this definitely improved my 780 in the Witcher BIG TIME.
How much did it improve?? I cant tell 100% but im thinking mine improved somewhere between 8-16 fps maybe more lol im not even sure. What settings are you at aswell?
yeah somewhere between that many frames added now as you. There's a smoothness now compared to the jitters before every now and then. I have all post processing on and everything on ultra except hairworks OFF, foliage visibility, and background characters... those are set to high. Constant 60fps now.
I might need to try your settings i had everything ultra hairworks off and got 42-60 fps average about 52 and with foliage visibility set to high i had average 56, depending on the area. Also my card is a reference so i might have worse performance compared to you. But overall pretty playable framerate when if it hits the thirty's i get major stuttering.
well my 780 is actually a 6GB EVGA version. that may have something to do with it too. I should check how much VRAM is being used
Well you said you had two things on high. I have 1 thing set to high and the vram usage i have never seen it go beyond 2.5gb your evga card would certainly get better performance as it runs cooler and is able to be overclocked higher than a reference. If its overclocked how much have you increased the core clock and memory?
my card isn't OC'd. I'm willing to believe it's because your card is reference. I have a super clocked 780 6GB but I haven't OC'd it beyond it's EVGA stock. What else do you have set to ultra?
Got huge gains in Far Cry 4 as well. Might actually finish it now.
Anyone Who streams PC games to their android phone using Moonlight shouldnt download this yet or it wont work, you will get a "cannot launch game since NVFBC is not supported". I had to rollback my drivers. In short wait until moonlight updates on android
I have an FX 6300, GTX 660 TI with 16 GB of DDR3 Ram at 1333 speed. I of course cannot reach 60 fps but I can play this game High settings with Textures and a few other settings on ultra on a smooth 30 fps. On the Nvidia control panel, I selected half refresh v-sync and in the game settings i selected unlimited frame rate. The game play is very smooth no hiccups. Only noticed once in a cut scene next to a fire it dipped to like 27 for a sec or two but that's it. I noticed my GPU is about 75 to 80 % with some spikes of 99%. I am still tweaking my settings to see what more i can squeeze but so far I am beyond pleased with the performance. To add: I can select Ultra settings and the game sticks to 30 but I start seeing a little bit of jerkiness and screen tearing which i rather not have so I have High with textures and some other settings set to ultra with a steady and smooth 30 fps.
