Odd that NVidia have a driver for the new Battlefield turd, considering it's basically the BF4 mantle engine thing, as it's only Beta. Does Hardline use Mantle?

EA must have paid Nvidia to do that to make the minions believe they are getting a whole new game. :p


I only just installed the latest driver today (before this one) .... damnit

Interesting thing that Hardline is AMD sponsored game so scrubs will buy it because of Mantle.

Thanks for feeling my pain :)
I only thought the timing was quite funny, as I literally just finished installing the previous set of drivers, opened my browser, went to TPU and boom new headline stating that Nvidia had released new drivers. I hasn't thought about the loss of my time tbh.

Ok tried these out. They installed fine and everything. Games seemed a little slower so I check out if SLI was enabled (as I noticed temps were really low on the second card) and found it was disabled in NVidia control panel. So I enabled it, and black screen. It refuses to run SLI with these drivers and my setup. Previous drivers work fine though (337.88).

Same here with Titan. I even tried massively downclocking my Titan and CPU, no change. It has to be the drivers and/or Unigine Valley. I have no problems otherwise.

I'm glad you posted that. Good to know it's not just me.

Yeah, it's common problem with 780 series and last drivers. With older driver for example - 332.21 no problems. No artifacts there. It's driver issue, not gpu/memory, so no worries.
