NVIDIA Releases GeForce 344.75 WHQL Game Ready Driver

In what's been a month of driver releases on a near-weekly basis, NVIDIA released its latest "Game Ready" driver, GeForce 344.75 WHQL. In addition to game optimizations for some of the latest game releases of the week, this driver introduces multi-frame sampled anti-aliasing (MFAA), which can be enabled across GeForce GTX 600, GTX 700, and GTX 900 series graphics cards. Game optimizations with this release include FarCry 4, Dragon Age: Inquisition, The Crew, and World of Warcraft: Warlords of Dreanor.

NVIDIA Rolls Out GeForce 344.65 WHQL Game Ready Driver

In what is NVIDIA's third Game Ready driver release in the past three months, the new GeForce 344.65 WHQL is launched specifically for the week's hottest game release, Assassin's Creed Unity. The driver comes with optimizations for the game, its SLI profile, and optimal settings for GeForce Experience. The driver also tags along improvements to the optimizations of the past two "Game Ready" releases, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and Civilization: Beyond Earth.

NVIDIA Outs GeForce 344.60 WHQL Game Ready Driver

While AMD launches WHQL-signed drivers every three or so months, NVIDIA seems to be making a habit of launching one ahead of every major game release. The company's new 344.60 WHQL "Game Ready" drivers, released today, come just in time for the year's biggest shooter, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. In addition, the driver comes with an updated PhysX System Software (version 9.14.0702), CUDA (version 6.5), and GeForce Experience (16.13.56.0). Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare doesn't support Windows XP, so NVIDIA didn't bother with an update for that OS. Grab your driver from the links below.

NVIDIA Rolls Out GeForce 344.48 WHQL Game Ready Driver

NVIDIA rolled out the GeForce 344.48 WHQL "Game Ready" drivers, timed to launch with Civilization: Beyond Earth, Elite: Dangerous, and Lords of the Fallen. These drivers enable Dynamic Super Resolution (DSR), which debuted on the "Maxwell" based GeForce GTX 900 series, on all older "Fermi" and "Kepler" based GeForce GTX 500, GTX 600, and GTX 700 series GPUs.

NVIDIA Releases GeForce 344.16 WHQL Drivers

Well, that was fast! NVIDIA gave WHQL signing to the GeForce 344.16 Beta drivers it released earlier this week. The drivers still support just GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 graphics cards. The release notes document (PDF) is still not clear on exactly what these drivers bring to the table, over the recently released 344.11 WHQL, but we believe it could be an important bug-fix specific to NVIDIA's new GPUs.

NVIDIA Rolls Out GeForce 344.16 Beta Drivers

Shortly after rolling out the GeForce 344.11 WHQL drivers following the launch of its GeForce GTX 900 series GPUs, NVIDIA slipped out GeForce 344.16 Beta drivers. The driver only supports GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 GPUs, and doesn't come with a working release notes link, and so we're left to guess that NVIDIA found a bug specific to the GTX 980 and GTX 970 that needed immediate fixing, and rushed out the 344.11 Beta. Grab it from the link below.

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.
