NVIDIA rolled out GeForce 337.81 beta software suite, which addresses a couple of outstanding issues. To begin with, it fixes Ultra HD display not working perfectly on SLI configurations, on certain displays, such as Samsung U28D590D. SLI and multi-GPU configurations support single tile monitors. The driver adds SLI profiles for Watch_Dogs. The driver is currently only available for Windows Vista / 7 / 8.x. The rest of its feature-set is consistent with GeForce R337 series drivers.

Yay...finally I can play on 4k on my monitor. What drove me nuts is my TRI SLI had the grunt, but you would get this flickering when SLI was at 4k. Hopefully when I get home that will be fixed.

No....no...impossible. Nvidia drivers are perfect, this was caused by AMD or display manufacturers.

I think at least some of those people who go around complaining about and bashing AMD drivers could be hired to do just that. I've seen it on youtube too.

AMD drivers and Nvidia drivers suck equally at times, and then are great at times. I prefer Nvidia drivers just because I like the control panel more and few other things that come with Nvidia cards in general, but having owned both, they are pretty equal(except for multi GPUs. Nvidia takes the cake easily with that one). One line of drivers will absolutely suck, then the next few will be great. Repetitive cycle for both of them.

I almost always have both companies drivers in use and have few issues with either to be fair.
So,, is it Titan Z go time now??.

No, silly.

First they have to release a normal driver that supports it.
Then they make another driver that enables Titan Z SLI profiles and say up-to 80% driver improvement.
At this point, they will release the SLI profiles in the same driver for the Titan Z.

Don't feed the trolls.

With the probable exception of focus group members (and anyone familiar with John Fruehe's Bulldozer bullshit knows that is far from a one company trait) it's probably idiots from the same defective gene pool that bash Nvidia drivers incessantly. Reading these forums, and if I didn't know better, I'd think that every Nvidia driver blows up cards. Some people must not get out much.
With that said, I'm glad nVidia continue to make loads of money. :p
What is even more amazing is that they continue to do so -according to some people- even whilst paying out for shills, bribing reviewers and OEMs, shelling out for all the driver related cards that blow up, selling products at a loss, and giving away vast quantities of GPUs to prop up marketing. Imagine how much cash they'd rake in without all these expenses :rolleyes:

Eh the 337.50 sucked for my 670 GTX FTW sli, I tested about 20 or so games, the 331.81 is probably the best sli driver I've used to date. Currently using the 332.21 as I'm really unsure about Nvidia's newer drivers......

Might come down to GPU and game optimization. I'm using 337.50 with GTX 780 SLI and on balance the newer driver is delivering (very) slightly better framerates. Most of my gaming is FPS (Battlefield 3 n' 4, Crysis series, Metro, STALKER mods) so cant attest to RPG or strategy themed gaming, and haven't had any stability problems - excepting Lost Alpha, which is game related.

I tested the 337.50 on following games: Crysis 2/3/ Metro Last Light//Tomb Raider/ Dead Island Riptide/Star Wars: The Old Republic/Skyrim/Test Drive 2 UL/Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit/Most Wanted/Alan Wake/Payday/Fear 3/Outlast/Wow-64 bit
all games except for Metro LL halted fps drops and cpu temp increases, up to 4C in some games. Not a good driver for 600 series sli
