Nvidia Publishes Geforce 310.70 Beta Driver

According to Nvidia, the driver will deliver up to 26 percent faster performance in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, 38 percent speed increase in Far Cry 3, and up to 18 percent faster performance in Assassin’s Creed III, and shimmer-free graphics with TXAA antialiasing in both games.

Nvidia said that the driver will also provide a substantial performance boost in several other games, including Far Cry 3, battlefield 3, StarCraft II and Dragon Age II on GeForce 400/500/600 cards. 12 game titles received SLI profiles, 37 titles got 3D profiles.

Noteworthy is also the addition of CUDA5 support, PhysX version 9.12.1031, as well as OpenGL 4.3 support for GeForce 400-series and later GPUs.

    Meh who cares. New drivers used to be a big deal but now my feelings is just...meh they come out with drivers so often that it just is old now. My GTX 550Ti drivers are fine so I'm not changing unless they randomly start to cause problems.

    Yea I'm a bit at ends here with the lateness of this article this came out yesterday many other tech sites were on top of this. The WHQL version was talked about to be coming out next week on the official nvidia forums. So for most they will want to wait till next week to get the finished product.

    Last year, Tom's hardware did a driver comparison of a 5850 (I think). They compared drivers from launch to the latest one, and noticed that the 5850's performance increased to a 5870's level from just updating from the launch drivers to the latest ones.

    It is news. Go and read the notes, some significant perf. updates. My GW2 now runs smoother.

I would like Toms to do another one of these performance reports on how drivers have improved two-three years after the release of the Fermi architecture.

    This really starts to level the playing field since AMD's latest beta versions of Catalyst 12.11. Nvidia's previous driver launch didn't quite level it out, but this may have done the trick, especially since it's getting more games to support TXAA.

    Now, if only Tom's could be more up to date with their news...
