    guess depends from each card capability ,because i heard of 780s not gaining a single fps with these drivers. Heard more the gainings on the lower end cards for now

    A little bit funny, I just now had some time today to get started on TW3. I have a 780Ti with a slight oc of 1200mhz and nothing on the memory.

    On 352.86 I had the following settings:
    1080p
    Everything on Ultra expect Hairworks off, Foliage Visibility set to Medium, AO Off, Shadow Quality set to High.

    Would rarely dip down to high 50's, but in general kept high 60's-mid 70's.

    New Drivers:
    With the same settings as above, never a drop in the 50's and an average of mid 70's to mid 80's. Also with the new drivers I was able to turn on AO (HBAO+) and tick up foliage distance to high and still haven't seen a dip into the 50's.

    I think they just should have said "Kepler TW3 Fix" rather than imply it will "fix" any other game.

    Very noticeable improvement in TW3

    + Gpu usage / framerate was varying a lot without doing anything (like 3-4 variations per second) making the gameplay very choppy. Now it seems to be more stable.
    However I crashed twice already with one hard lock up in the first 5 mns. It is at the very least as unstable as the previous driver for my system.

    GTX 760 - Witcher 3 (Inn at the Crossroads - Looking at the inn from the road always gave me a minimum)

    352.82 - Minimum: 28 FPS
    353.06 - Minimum: 37 FPS

    :banana:

    Edit: FPS are still quite unstable, but on average I'm seeing about 6 fps more. There's a noticeable improvement.

    Definitely much better performance in Witcher 3 .... very fluid.

    I did have "display driver stopped responding" error but it recovered. Noticed I had started TW3 from Geforce Experience launch button, so now closed it and started TW3 directly. Will update this post ....

    I got a nice performance boost on Witcher 3, I didn't try deeply as i want to, but just loading my save game went from 20-22fps on the labyrinth fight (after triss scene) to 33-36fps. I think towns still the same (so far) but I don't know yet.

    GTX 760.

    G-Sync for windowed mode is interesting.

    [​IMG]

    focused windowed directx games/apps can now change desktop refresh rate. clicking outside the windowed app would seemingly revert to max configured refresh.
    they've been preparing us for this with recent drivers (G-Sync on at desktop).

    Fixed/G-Sync/ULMB modes can now be set in control panel - meaning application profiles support. waiting for nvinspector update :)

    [​IMG]

    previously G-Sync would replace V-Sync setting, now in G-Sync mode ("monitor tech") there's a V-Sync On/Off to go with it. not sure about this one yet...

    edit: never mind, just saw the geforce article which covers it all :)

    This is basically them admitting that if the internet didn't went bananas, Kepler optimization is dead.

    The biggest thing I was hoping for was a fix for the crashing in Witcher 3. Just crashed after 10 mins of gameplay. It's driving me insane. I don't like to complain, but come on guys. It took you 2 weeks to release this driver and it's STILL crashing on the biggest game currently out.

    Maybe the patch coming out this week will help with that, I don't know. But god DAMN it's frustrating.

    In other news, it seems I can now set foliage distance to Ultra (up from High) and maintain 60FPS. Will try some more testing if I can go a few minutes without crashing.

    I have similar hardware to you but nowhere near the 60fps maintained at ultra, although...are you playing at 1080p or 1440p?
