This is a very safe WHQL release. Disappointed there weren't the big improvements we were told to expect from the delayed release, Nvidia seem to be too busy with their new branch of drivers than work with PC gamers but thumbs up for fixing various game stability issues and improved frametimes. I'd await the soon to be announced beta than install these. If your running competitive benchmarks you have to install the latest WHQLs but the time til the next set is going to be some wait again.

 

Read the Nvidia forums amongst many others for feedback on these and nothing to note at all for performance improvements, just minor fixes. Some are experiencing performance issues with GPU utilisation being lower and lower framerate than normal unless they force maximum power which then creates an issue with heat, +10% higher than normal. As for BF3 there are small improvements for those that had experienced flickering and mine remain with the last 326.80 WHQLs.

 

Nvidia rep ManuelG says they will support PCIe 3.0 ONLY on the latest Ivybridge-E (4820K, 4930K, 4960X) for those with GK110 GTX 780 or GTX Titan in the next beta before the month is over. No more hacks for those living on the edge of tech but still I think its a placebo fix and recall an old test that show it really only matter with 3-4 GPUs.

Regarding that game Rome II, he said they won't release an SLI profile until the big patch arrives. So far most the Rome II patches are hotfixes and haven't fixed much that would appease most fans and as importantly Nvidia to have something worth improving. As I've previously mentioned in the shoutbox, I'd got SLI to work in Rome II utilising both GPUs fully to see for myself but there are serious textures tiling/popping issues that Nvidia would find impossible to do much with in it's present state and don't blame them for not touching it now - the balls in CA court.

Wait what? PCIE 3.0 only for selected platforms? You meant SLI configurations of 780s and TITANs or every single GPU?

Only PCIe 3 for IB-E and purely down to Nvidia - you can trace this back to GTX680 and SB-E where Nvidia rep ManuelG clarified their position in a post. That fix in particular only applies to GTX780 or GTX Titan, whether in SLI or not.

Sorry now I got it. Only for those with 780 and TITAN. Your sentence was long enough for me to stop reading it in the half haha
