    Not much of an improvement although I have not tested it "in the field"

    Could you disable Hyperthreading and lower the clocks to say 2.4GHz? You CPU is not even close to a bottleneck here (which is great). I think the benefits here are in CPU limited scenarios, games like SC2 and other cpu bound games will show a huge difference me thinks.

    i guess the Valley Benchmark don't see HT since it only write x6 at the end of the processor :laugh:

    Benchmarks like this sre not going to see much of an improvement, since they are far from CPU limited.

    I saw a pretty good improvement in Battlefield 4. My experience is a lot smoother now (when the server isn't rubber banding) on the newer beta versus the previous official driver.

    I also play BF4 and I did notice it was smoother..... I think Nvidia was making claims as outlandish as AMD about their mantle.... I have yet to see a 40% improvement though.

    outlandish claims? where are the total war tests? how about sleeping dogs? if their claims are cherry picked, you have to run the same cherries

    Why dont you try some cpu intense benchmarks instead?

    Because comparing it to gpu bound benchmarks its pretty much useless.



    here have a look at my boost scenario, I already posted this in another thread though

    Guys,

    I don't get off on benchmarking so if you all want these different tests done, do them yourself and share the info.

    Cheers

    What a pointless thread then. Make benchmark thread, puts one benchmark.

    So the point here is old Nvidia games anyway, Batman 2011...its old enough to be potty trained!!!

    And now we are going to start benchmarking to show off our epeen by downclocking and choking it? Its amazing how Nvidia can give its users the Cleavland Steamer and they go 2 girls on it.

    You do know that this driver was tailored to only improve performance in those games that they listed right? And that performance can vary from system to system, so some will see improvement, some wont?

    This is a great trend we are seeing. PC gaming in the future will be less expensive and PCs will last longer requiring only GPU upgrades once in a while. This kind of software technology will make PC game much more accessible for many people. Frankly as this matures I see anyone with a i5/i7 Sandy bridge and up cpu should be fine for years especially when overclocked.

    Wrong, the performance boost will happen across most DX9 and DX11 games, especially CPU limited, though GPU limited games are showing big boosts too. The ones listed are just the more substantial ones. Battlefield 4 has been getting some big boosts for people, but its not listed.

    At least it was a contribution asshole, I don't see you posting benchmark results.

    I don't usually post benchmark results, but when I do they are actually useful.

    Posting a Valley run for the new driver....not useful.
