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.

This is not true, MFAA is only available on GTX 9xx series cards.

I can confirm no MFAA for 780Ti.
Also those drivers broke the SMAA in FC4. Now when enabled, it's a complete blured image.

Because they fail at rendering fur thats why :D We've had fur rendering that didn't look much worse than this like 10 years ago. Can't remember the name of the game, but i think it was made by some german developer or publisher and it was happening in some sort of jungle secret research complex with animals that were turned into robotic hybrids with metal skeleton and flesh over it. And when you shot them, the flesh would be actually torn off. The game was rather mediocre, but the dismemberment and fur rendering was pretty advanced for its time. Not sure why the hell i can't find it...

EDIT:

Found it. The game was Vivisector: Beast Within



Video quality is a bit rubbish, but you can see the fur render being done on those beasts. The game was released back in 2006. We are talking GeForce 6000 and 7000 series era. That's freakin ancient history and they could do fur rendering that basically doesn't look much worse than it does today. Ugh...

And another crappy, rushed out driver, plagued with issues.
Now I get blackscreens out of nowhere in kerbal space program.
Why can't Nvidia make a driver anymore?
Did all the competent people quit?

That game looks good even for today's standards. Put some shaders and HD textures and can be good to go :))

There is already a hotfix for this driver and the issues with DP.
344.8 hotfix.
I'm really beyond annoyed with Npoopia lately.
Thousands of dollars I spent building this sli 980 system, just to get crappy drivers.
Seriously wth happened to Nvidia quality control and competent programmers?

So just to be clear. MFAA is only for 9xx cards, right?
