It seems there is only one difference between these and previous set:
Nvidia drivers already use more CPU than AMD drivers anyway but these new drivers are using more CPU power. My CPU score went from 9411 to 9139 with these drivers.
This driver is also for the crysis 3 SLI fix. Currently in .95, SLI would not work in the multiplayer beta.
Installed ok here using Windows 8 Pro 64-bit with SLI 670. Haven't tested any games yet.
As expected still no options in regards to maximizing, task bar centering and the lock screen still is messed up when using three screens.
i rarely use the installer, generally i uninstall previous drivers and use Device Manager to update to new drivers, never failed me to this day, i'm currently using the 313.95.
apparently the installation problem happens to Non-English users, still kudos to nvidia for fixing the problem anyway.
Idk about 313.95 Crysis3 performance im using 313.96 atm and Crysis3 performance is top, gpu usage always 90-99%, cpu also pretty high 90-95% in most demanding 16player areas, otherwise ~ 75%.
That's no fun, but I guess it wouldn't matter much unless game performance also suffered. Do you have any games to benchmark?
curious, has anyone tried the 313.95/96 with Mechwarrior Online? any difference with SLI performance and/or with surround?
i ask because since these drivers are crysis3 optimized and might somewhat affects other games on cryengine3?
Ah well, it looked so promising while it lasted..
Got this in BF3 AfterMath DLC, happened after idk good hour or so. And when I tried to restart the game it always crashed with this error when i switched to fullscreen.
One time it was another similar DirectX error and it said this is due to bad driver, try different or reinstall.
I never had this error before, ok only with some old 301.xx driver.
The good thing was I could use my max OC 930mhz/2290mhz in Crysis3 or in BF3, but yeah now i got this.. I'll try to reinstall and see how it goes.
played 4 hours straight bf3 and no problems
Do you have enabled Origin ingame chat or did you use it while you played?
I have a feeling its something with that, after I started switching between chat and back to game it eventually crashed and never wanted to start again, always hanged with this DirectX error.
At first it was ok, but when i opened some gameshop internet site with flash content (it was slow) it kinda crashed few minutes later., before that it was stable without issues..
Idk was it origin fault or maybe that high OC somehow corrupted the driver, but then again Crysis3 didnt fail, although i didnt use chat much while playing it.
Nope, i dont like using overlays (uplay, origin) but using steam overlay tho.
SLI is not working (at least not properly) for me in C3 Beta. I did not install .95, installed this directly. Any ideas?
this version is just as ****ed as last one. brand new formatted windows 8 installation after the last driver ****ed up on install
edit: english version on brand new windows installation -FUCING ROFL
NVIDIA you are a big joke
310.90 installed flawlessly. i have not been able to install 313 version on windows 8 pro 64 bit yet
There has to be some compatitbility issues with a galaxy 680, win8 64 pro and this driver. i have not had another driver fail to install on a fresh windows installation ever
this driver have solved the problem with tdr and assassin's creed III'
Because 313.95 have same problem, I overclock my gpu's 900@1,088v
and with this game I take crash for this file: nvlddmkm.sys
313.96 works like a charm, just like all the other NVidia drivers over the past 30 years that I have been installing. Never had any issue…
When installing new drivers I follow this procedure:
° Switch your overclocking to stock on your CPU and GPU
° De-install your actual driver and reboot PC
° Use Drive Sweeper (in normal or in safe mode) to clean any leftover NVidia files
° Install new drivers and perform initial testing.
° Follow ‘The Overclocking Master-Guide’ guide (see link below) to OC your GPU and re-test your previous OC on your CPU.
This always worked!
I also use a free tool to make my PC run very smoothly, called ‘Mz7 Optimizer’. Furthermore you need CCleaner (free) and Game Booster 3 (free) is a must have for any gamer.
If you don’t have a SSD disk you should run a good disk defrager tool (like PerfectDisk) to defrag your drive, run it every week.
A small footprint anti virus software like Kaspersky AV is also a must have. It keeps your PC clean from garbage making your PC slow.
Remark: don’t trust on the system recovery to go to you previous drivers, it’s not a bullet proof system. So basically you need also a good snapshot/backup from your system to recover your PC in case things go very bad. I use BESR from Symantec, a fast and good recovery system.
All not needed, ccleaner etc. can do more damage (they can be usefull, yes), game booster for high end, and in this case yours, useless, defrag every week, nonsense. AV software doesnt clean your system from garbage and is also not needed (if you have experience and know where you're surfing + vm, etc.). Never had a virus in years.
Have you use windows 8?
I Have more problem with tdr, less with windows 7.
Have u use assassin's creed 3?
It's show more problem with my videocard and frequency stock.
I up my vcore of 0,12 volt for no crash with stock frequency.
Sorry for my english
Im impress with these drivers even my aging quad 580's still pumping to 112 fps even went up to 140 with preset to very high and Smaa High,texture resolution to very high, motion blur high basically just maxed out. crysis 3 engine runs well even on old gpu. crysis 3 MP beta is actually pretty fun
by the way how enable very high textures in crysis 3 i have enable after restart its swith back to high
