why they no give stats for my 670????

and the games they show had a max of 11% if its up to 15 show which game is 15!!!!


and i wonder how long they have had the performance part of this update waiting in their back pocket so they could "match" AMD's move the next day, just like this........

I guess that's one of the disadvantages of getting your drivers (mostly) right the first time -- there won't be much performance to be gained by tweaking later on.

Why do I get the feeling where going to see more of this driver sand bagging of sorts in the future.

These little games have been played all the way back to the dawn of video drivers. Single digit percent gains are intangible and might as well be measurement error, but it still looks good on a news release.

NVIDIA has today rolled out a new graphics driver that delivers performance improvements of up to 15%

Where is the counter AMD "never settle" 4 free game bundle?

Show me the 4 free game coupon then I will consider NVIDIA's counter move worthy.

I am done with Skyrim, I am no longer playing StarCraft II (heck was getting 60fps tops there even before this driver), I am finished with Batman: Arkham City and I am not interested in reinstalling Dragon Age II. Basically don't need it.

When these are out of beta, as well as Catalyst 12.11, I hope W1z retests the 500/600 and 7000 series.

The last day has been really confusing. I blame most of it on the 'never settle for a driver without at least 3 hotfixes', but there's always a chance this driver could change the over-all picture as well.

Hooray for tangible performance increases, even if they both appear suspicious in both where AMD cards now land in performance relative to nvidia's parts when normalized, as well as nvidia magically having a beta in their back pocket compiled and ready to go.

I'll have to test this out with my 670 to see if there are any noticable performance gains. Only downside is I don't exactly have a ton of Benchmarking games as far as I know. I know I could manage some synthetic ones easily, but as far as games it's hard to benchmark consistantly without a pre-scripted benchmark system.

How does the rating system work for the 3D Vision profiles?
So if nobody has an answer than I'll just have to assume that they just make up the rating system based on what they think.

Guys, looks like we don't have to buy new faster cards anymore from now on. We just download new drivers, and that's it:toast:

Really weird. In fallout 3, it rates it "Excellent" but has some funky stuff with HDR turned on. While in Magic Duels of Planeswalker, its rated "Not Rated" but was in fact flawless.
