The new GeForce 310.70 drivers are now available to download. The culmination of our recent beta releases, these WHQL-candidate drivers improve performance by up to 37% in the year's most popular games, add TXAA support to Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Assassin's Creed III, make Sparse Grid Supersampling easier to use, get your system ready for the latest releases, including Far Cry 3, Hitman: Absolution and Planetside 2, and resolve key issues, like shadow flickering in Assassin's Creed III.

Complete details about every change and feature can be found on GeForce.com.

Hi AndyB.

Do these drivers fix the intermittent crash people are experiencing within Battlefield 3 ?

There are also changes for Far Cry 3 according to GeForce.com and the release notes. (Likely just an updated SLI profile)

Wrong. Previous driver didn't have correct profile.

Quote:
Release 310 drivers introduce power-optimizing enhancements. As a result of these
enhancements, you may notice that GPU core clock speeds are different with this driver.
For example, the GPU core clock might be faster when the GPU is in idle mode than in
previous drivers. Or you may notice higher GPU core clock speeds after closing or
opening certain games than in previous drivers.
This is because the reported GPU core clock frequency is no longer correlated to GPU
power-saving states. Instead of lowering the GPU core clock frequency, the hardware and
software use other methods to put the GPU into a low power state when the GPU is idle
or in response to changing application requirements. This ensures optimum power use
while continuing to provide high graphics performance.
Mobile users should read this thoroughly and file a bug report if they actually experience an attestable higher power consumption.

I thought they just photochopped 310.64 to 310.70. Then I have to wonder what is the benefit of new profile if performance is the same.
