Is it only DX11? So DX9 games like Diablo III won't see improvements?

Any more info on this? Does it help with ghosting/convergence issues that some games have?

Yes but look at the bigger picture,

Batman AO uses U3E
Hitman A, TR uses Glacier2 engine
F1 using EGO engine, Grid2, Dirt3, etc..

Totalwar2 is a RTS example,
Skyrim RTP example and dx9 code with speedups..
^
both with big fps boost cause of those extra direct draw, cbSet, vertex and index buffers, all extra ~300% more compared to 335..

*Skyrim looks around the same as Starswarm and starSwarm bench got ~15fps boost if im not mistaken.

EDIT: RedFaction Armageddon is another very interesting example, game engine has stalling issues by collapsing buildings (gpu usage drops), maybe those extra buffers will help as well, will test this one too.




So anyway, where is the link?

I think since the news came out about the next 337 would have all these improvements, they just wanted to let us know the exact date it would be, so people don't keep on asking when it is going to be released.

So this is the so-called wonder driver ? Well i dont see something regarding AC4. Thus i will try in AC4.

If they say bla bla, more DX11 performance, this means increase in all DX11 games.

I am sure of this, that list of games is probably the "default" games titles that nvidia uses to test it, and make a changelog.

True. But there's also the possibility Nvidia has done specific driver optimizations for certain popular DX9 games.

In terms of benchmarking this driver, I do hope many sites do a better job than they did with Mantle.
It has been pointed out that CPU-bound scenarios will be improved, so any improvements will be shown better the weaker the CPU is.

AC4 run that bad?
On my system it run so-so only when Physx is set to high. But at normal AC4 run great.
Could also be bugs / optimization needed in the game. The game is capped at a ridiculous 60 fps even with Vsync off... poor 120hz monitor users...

Dude these are performance drivers doubt they are magical in any way. 2 or 3 posts here and your cursing already. I doubt these drivers will help a rig where the entire rig is a bottleneck. Don't like my opinion block me.

I'd say he'd notice a difference in some games, if my i7 is choking in single core performance in a few games, his Athlon even with a 640 would be having a heart attack.

I've been lobbying to get this fixed for ages. One of the devs actually replied to me on Twitter and said he'd look into it, so who knows.
