    P.S. TressFX hair now looks so much better than before and has much less of a performance hit than before (just as promised). It blows in the direction of the wind outdoors, remains more static indoors where there's no wind and doesn't spazz out as often. It also seems to have more weight to it. It isn't perfect but it certainly looks more natural and hair-like. Still want to know what conditoner Lara uses though to keep her hair so shiny, clean and bouncy!

    Ok thanks for info. :)

    Its new, it softens main shadows and takes a small fps hit compared to before at normal.

    why would i lie ? i show all details at max and my GTX680 run at 1306core with 7400 mem, so my I3770K at 5Ghz HT

    remeber that a 3770K at 5Ghz is like having a 2600K at 5.4Ghz

    dif on 3DM11 is 1k so the IVY pumps a lot

    I got a huge fps boost in Tomb Raider with these drivers compared to the 311.35 Quadro drivers.

    GeForce 314.21 Beta: Patch 1.0.722.3

    Ultra Preset:

    Min FPS: 58.4
    Max FPS: 86.0
    Average FPS: 72.8

    Ultimate Preset:

    Min FPS: 32.0
    Max FPS: 62.1
    Average FPS: 44.8

    GeForce 311.35 Beta: Patch 1.0.722.3

    Min FPS: 44.7
    Max FPS: 60.0
    Average FPS: 52.6

    Ultimate Preset:

    Min FPS: 28.2
    Max FPS: 43.4
    Average FPS: 35.7

    I reinstalled the 311.35 drivers to double check and the results were the same.

    These two benchmarks are from the Quadro 311.35 thread and were taken after the first patch. You can see the Quadro drivers are still getting the same fps.

    Could that be a Fermi bug because I do not see white lines with everything, and I mean everything, maxed at 1920x1200? I even tried FXAA and both SSAA options and did not notice any obvious graphical oddities except for some rare TressFX hair hiccups.

    I'm having an issue with SLi still, tried both these new drivers and previous beta drivers and previous WHQL drivers.

    Most of the time, I get 60 fps solid on ultra settings, with my 560 ti's in SLi.

    But I get random slowdowns, especially in combat, and if I look at my GPU load, one of the GPU's drops to 1-2% usage.

    Sometimes it's GPU 1, sometimes it's GPU 2, but during each and everyone of these massive slowdowns (I'm talking going down to 15 to 20 FPS) the GPU usage on one of the cards plummets.

    I've tried disabling SSAO, tesselation, everything.

    Any ideas?

    Are you really using that cpu or did you forget to update sig?

    Run well with Crysis 3 i heard.
    It's the cutscenes where i still see gpu thrashing and at these times the TressFX occasionally suffers flickering.

    Ive just tried the benchmark once again after a nights rest, and all seems to be fine somehow. maybe the game or drivers went bonkers or something. really weird!
    Here are my settings though

    -EDIT-
    After running the benchmark several times (and closing the game each time) im running into the same strange hair jumping around again.
    a reboot fixed it.

    -EDIT2-
    I seem to have this behaviour also when forcing vsync in the game itself. (no forcing through nvcp).
    Its really strange the problem comes and goes even without rebooting.
    Dont really know if its the new drivers or the new patch, but i didnt have this behaviour before.

    The problem is that after 10 or 15 minutes i have heavy an strong artifacts.
    My screen becomes full off distorted lines and colours and i have to quit.
    I had exactly the same problem with 314.07, and i waited for the new drivers to fix the issue.
    Anybody else facing the same, or i should begin the rma procedure ?
    My vga is rock solid and completely trouble free in all other games.
    Good temps and always at stock clocks.
