Nvidia Releases 314.07 WHQL Driver

Nvidia has released the 314.07 WHQL driver for its GeForce series of graphics cards and is viewed by the company as being "an essential update for gamers jumping into Crysis 3" as it increases performance on single and multiple-GPUs by a maximum of 65% and features an "excellent" 3D Vision profile for the game. Other improvements include a 27% gain in Assassin's Creed III, 19% in Civilization V, 14% in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, 14% in DiRT 3, 11% in Just Cause 2, 10% in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, 10% in F1 2012, 10% in Far Cry 3 and improved SLI performance in DMC: Devil May Cry and the F2P shooter, Warframe.


The GeForce 314.07 WHQL drivers are available from the GeForce.com homepage for Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows 8.

    First it kinda annoys me how the 500 series has been thrown under the bus on these graphs even though there are lots of people with 500 cards and second this driver removed the option for a centered taskbar I used to like on a multimonitor setup. Multi monitor users get thrown under the bus also which makes no sense since at work everyone has two monitors, at my desk I have four and at home I have 3. It's 2013, people use more than one monitor.

    what do you mean they are thrown under the bus??? You make no sense to me... They onlyshow the graph for 1920x1080 because that is the most common resolution played at... Not because you see no improvement in all resolutions... Who cares if you don't put your card in the graph... you should still see improvements in game.

    While I can understand your woes with multi-monitor issues if that's true, how is this throwing GTX 500 owners under the bus? Most of Nvidia's recent driver releases help those cards in addition to the GTX 600 series and even if they hadn't, it's not like new drivers don't at least support the older cards. There's only so much performance optimization that can be edged out of an architecture. They have their limits.

    I wish tomshardware could do a review putting driver performance enhancements to the test with a wide range of cards (new to old, (eg will a will a 6% improvement testing on a gtx 680 by nvidia translate into any performance improvement at all on a 200, 400, and 500 series card?

    (or will there be a case where it may actually lower performance with certain game and card combinations)

    That seems like it'd take a long time because of the huge workload. I can say that I'm not aware of any situation where it lowered performance on older cards. I can say that performance gains are probably not going to be proportional from the 600 series to the lower series because they're not even proportional for different cards in the 600 series, but I can say as much as they'd be there.

    There's a difference between bragging and adding another perspective to a post that was made earlier.

    I wasn't trying to.. I was just backing my comment above where he said multi monitor people get "thrown under the bus". Sorry if that was unclear.
