    Same here. Skyrim seems to run slightly faster in some sections but significantly more choppy (lower framerate) in others.

    I filed a bug report. http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=232034&view=findpost&p=1423654

    I play Skyrim in 1080p with 301.42 at higher-than-ultra settings (14k grass fade distance, forced CP anisotropic 16x) on my rig, a 550m@823MHz (from 475MHz), RAM@1140MHz (from 899MHz), and slightly reduced shadowmap. Sandy Bridge 3.5+GHz turbo. Game runs smooth (over 30fps, often much higher).

    So it sounds about right that a notebook like his running at 1366x768 can achieve medium/high settings at a somewhat playable framerate.

    Those drivers are better overclockers for my GTX 670 than my previous ones and I get with them a new record of 1250MHz Core. But still after going up to 1275MHz or 1300MHz Core (including boost clock) i get artifacting in 3DMark11 although temps are still @ 64C or 72C what the deuce??? :

    3DMark11 - GTX 670 - 301.80 - Score P8430 - No OC
    3DMark11 - GTX 670 - 304.48 - Score P8557 - No OC
    3DMark11 - GTX 670 - 304.48 - Score P8947 - +100 Core
    3DMark11 - GTX 670 - 304.48 - Score P9244 - +100 Core and 3.2GHz CPU
    3DMark11 - GTX 670 - 304.48 - Score Pxxxx - +125 or 150 Core === ARTIFACTS in 3DMark11 while temps are still in 64C-70C

    Probably need more voltage for higher clocks, but sadly these cards are voltage locked unless you mod your card.

    After playing (and finishing) Mass Effect 2 for 3 hours, using nvidia FXAA, I must say: These are the drivers I was waiting for! Good job nvidia! Silk smooth speed, graphics, and vsync forced on, great stuff!

    Noticed a flickering/disappearing mouse-cursor on Saints Row: The Third myself. Not visible when it's stationary, visible when you move it but flickers.

    Deus ex 1fps.

    Seems like they made benchmark games run better and made lots of other titles FUBAR with these drivers. I haven't seen something this bad ever. 1fps? WTF...

    mmm your actually right, needs more juicee. I was able to unlock the voltage in MSI Afterburner but I havent tried cranking it a bit up.. I dont think its worthing that right now. I guess i will stay at 1250MHz its good enough on the Core.

    No wow problems here

    No problems here with WoW. I use 64 bit Win 7, DX 11, adaptive v-sync. These drivers have worked great for me, on all the games mentioned in prior posts.

    Guys these drivers are constantly crashing for me in BF3.

    1. Constant Crashing in BF3 - I never had this issue with the earlier ones. The microstutter is definitely improved but not worth it FOR ME at this cost. The system is 690 Quad SLI at +100 core and +150 mem. Heaven runs just fine for several runs without crashin on this OC. Could it be the OC causing the crashing and somehow destabilising the hardware?

    2. Absolutely ZERO improvement in Shogun2. Can someone else please verify the Shogun 2 issue?

    Back to 302.59 for now. I like it better when my computer shuts down properly.

    it has been 8 minutes and the driver is still installing

    looks promising :)

    edit: did some benchmarks, performance is on par with 302 series driver. zero gains.


    nvidia marketing are at it again me thinks. at least didn't break anything for me

    How do you get these drivers to install, if you replace the .ini file you get the blue screen of death, wont install without the .ini file replaced though

    been using the drivers since release, absolutely excellent, all the issues i had with 301.xx are gone including vsync issues, great fps increase too.

    i gained 10fps in Crysis 2, i mean ok gtx 690 and the game is already stupidly fast but moar is good :D

    all other games gained 2 to 5fps.

    Can someone else run Test B (the giant creature fight) in the Lost Planet 2 DX11 benchmarks using maxed settings, DX11=High and 8xQCSAA please (my resolution is 1920x1200) using these drivers as both times I've ran it my PC has frozen about half way through the test, forcing me to hard reset. Because of this I have no error message so I've no idea what the cause is though I suspect it may be the driver as I've ran this test before with other drivers without any issues. Test A runs OK by the way.

    I'll add that my PC has been 100% stable (i.e. no blue screen crashes) since I've had my GTX 680 and now GTX 680 SLI and I've not changed any settings/drivers in months apart from installing new graphics drivers.
