NVIDIA Announces GeForce 337.88 WHQL "Game Ready" Drivers

With summer upon us, and some sizzling hot PC games hitting the shelves, times call for the latest GPU drivers to deal with the games, especially with 4K Ultra HD entering the sub-$1000 consumer space. NVIDIA rolled out its GeForce 337.88 WHQL driver suite, which is the second of its kind to bear the name "Game Ready." It does so, because it ships with a huge amount of performance optimizations specific to games. The drivers also attempt to increase NVIDIA's competitiveness over AMD at higher display resolutions, namely 3840 x 2160 (UHD), and 2560 x 1440 (WQHD).

At UHD resolutions, NVIDIA promises performance gains of 10 percent or more, with Call of Duty: Ghosts, F1 2013, Hitman Absolution, Sniper Elite V2, DiRT 3, Just Cause 2, and Team Fortress 2. At WQHD, performance gains in excess of 10 percent are promised for Call of Duty: Ghosts, Sleeping Dogs, StarSwarm, Thief, World of Tanks, Hitman Absolution, Team Fortress 2, and Just Cause 2. The new drivers iron out compatibility issues with both MST and SST type Ultra HD monitors. SLI profiles are added or improved for thirteen titles, including Watch_Dogs, Windbourne, Daylight, Call of Duty: Online, and PlanetSide 2.

Drivers Holding Back GTX TITAN-Z Launch

It turns out that drivers are holding back launch of NVIDIA's GeForce GTX TITAN-Z flagship graphics card. That's not to say that drivers for the card don't exist. When tested with ones that do, performance numbers yielded by Hong Kong-based tech print magazine E-Zone, reveal that the card trades blows with AMD's R9 295X2 in too many tests to warrant double its price at $2,999; and that it's also slower in some. The only way NVIDIA can sell the GTX TITAN-Z at that price, is by either making it significantly faster, or reducing the price. It looks like NVIDIA is trying the former, and not by tinkering with hardware specifications, but drivers. NVIDIA believes it can yet salvage the $2,999 pricing of the GTX TITAN-Z, by developing drivers that make the card convincingly faster than AMD's $1,499 offering. Retailers and distributors are being told not to sell their GTX TITAN-Z inventory until NVIDIA releases these drivers. The company didn't mention a date to these retailers. Given its track-record with performance-enhancing drivers, one can give NVIDIA the benefit of doubt. It may yet prevent a "GTX TITANIC-Z" from happening.
