Nvidia outs 270.61 WHQL drivers

Written by Fudzilla staff


Performance boosts, new 3D Vision features
Nivida has rolled out a new set of WHQL drivers which promise to deliver significant performance boosts in certain titles.

RPG lovers will be thrilled to hear that Dragon Age II now runs up to 6.2 times faster on a GTX 580 SLI setup, while it ends up 3.6 times faster on the mid-range GTX 560 Ti. Other titles saw a much smaller, but nonetheless significant increase, ranging from 11 percent in Just Cuase 2 to 4 percent in Mafia 2.

Nvidia has also tweaked 3D Vision support for all enthusiasts who embraced it. Frame rates jumped across the board, particularly with SLI setups, with a staggering 367 percent in Call of Duty: Black Ops, 350% in Left 4 Dead 2, NFS:Shift 259 percent and so on.

3D depth of field effects have also been improved, that is to say 3D crosshair is now several times faster. Nvidia has also simplified the installation of 3D Vision by integrating the 3D Vision USB controller into the driver, along with some other optimizations.

You can check out the details here.

Great. Another performance driver when they should be working on the bugs. Reviews everywhere mention problems with certain settings now. Nvidia has been ignoring the bugs to make better performance claims.

Look what happens when nvidia doesn't have the money in TWIMTBP games. No more holding back the final code drop from AMD. Now its nVidia who is scrambling to get the drivers right. Justice is being served to nVidia now for screwing with the games. Nvidia would rather spend money to sabotage games than quality check their drivers.

The Nvidia checklist:
Check to see if new drivers make your games more blurred.
Check reduced IQ to get better frame rates.
Pray that more games aren't crashing
Keep a really close eye on those temps. We all know how Nvidia drivers have a long history of frying the cards

@Mr. Awesome

You're absolutely right. Optimus has been crashing YouTube since January. That's 3 whole months! Guess what nVIDIA says the fix is: disabling hardware acceleration for Flash! In other words all you need is an Intel proc :)

NVidia drivers have something that ATI/AMD could do but won't do: the ability to create and GPU-scale any custom resolution.

My presbyobic eyes are grateful to Nvidia for the custom 1536 x 960 resolution on my Dell 24 inch 16:10 monitor.

AFAIK, there is no way to get such a resolution with AMD graphics drivers.
