    Anyone else test MOH warfighter yet? Multiplayer is really choppy in Windows 8 compared to 310.33.

    it claimed - Up to 6% in Medal of Honor: Warfighter, but it's not smooth.

    What are you guys finding?

    I think I'm just going to stick with 306.23 for now, it's the first Nvidia driver in a long time that I haven't had some kind of random issue with.

    No black flickering textures in BF3, no P-State bug, no install error, just working as they should. Yay!

    Yea, like we say in the story you should see improvements on all 400, 500 and 600 series GPUs, but we simply can't test them all because we're doing 2 tests per resolution and setting (old driver vs. new driver), per GPU, per game. And when you've got something like Skyrim with Indoor and Outdoor benchmarks, or Black Ops 2 with FXAA, MSAA and TXAA benchmarks, this adds up to a LOT of testing, and that's just on two GPUs!

    Poor old Julio, our perf lab chap, must be wishing for a holiday right about now :)

    Can someone try to confirm the choppiness in MOHW Multiplayer for me? Might happen in SP too, but I was playing Mp, it was bad. Reverted back to 310.33 and it was butter smooth again. /Wondering if it's something with Windows 8 and this driver though.

    Found this:

    "Borderlands 2: Performance increased by 5.3% at 2560x1600 when using max settings and PhysX High. At 1920x1080 performance increased by 3.3%."

    Not much of an improvement, especially if you get slow downs, this increase
    will barely be noticed.

    Borderlands 2 doesn't use the physx libraries installed by Nvidia, they use ones built into the game. You have to wait for Gearbox to update those if they ever do.
