    Can't wait to try these on when I get home. Work sucks when new drivers are out! :)

    I can confirm Metro 2033 fixed with this PhysX and also confirm a noticeable improvement in FPS on BF3 and even some older games...

    Regarding BF3 the FPS doesnt drop down so ridiculsly anymore for example from 120 to 50, it dips down to let's say 80ish or so.

    Some issues I had are also gone...

    The marketing point behind TXAA is painfully obvious, but nVidia could still be the first to implement SMAA so that we wouldn't have to use an injector (and SGSSAA through nvinspector). That CAN be an exclusive feature if they were willing...

    i always seem to have issues win win8 x64 and nvidia drivers. I do the clean install and then my pc ends up rebooting. Then i cannot install the driver. I have had to do a system restore. Even used driver fusion. no joy at all.

    Yes, they made a big thing about Borderlands 2 supporting this feature, and politely forgot to tell us it was removed. So currently 1 released game supports it.

    Everytime I have a midterm, there's a new driver. WHY ANDYB WHY.

    Results are strange.
    Either I'm in a different place and GPU use is generally higher or these drivers do use more GPU.

    Anyway...
    At default video clocks, it becomes GPU limited at times and seems a little bit smoother, not much though.
    When I up my video clocks (approx + 20%), it is no longer GPU limited, but becomes CPU limited instead.
    Performance is actually worse, there is more stutter by a long way.

    I wrote in the NFS MW 2012 thread that as I upped the GPU clocks, CPU use scaled with them, so its not a surprise that the CPU becomes more loaded.
    What is a surprise is that it actually performs worse, despite having more resources on tap to display the same thing.

    Something is very wrong with the way that CPU use scales with GPU clock speed, yet doesnt give any on screen benefit.

    Nothing else loaded, no utilities, besides EVGA PrecisionX & Asrock Tuning Utility. This was a fresh win 8 install with 310.33 loaded. Want to try the newer ones on my EVGA 660ti SC card.

    Yes is WAS. Until you've decided to use Driver Fusion.
    Do not use 3rd party system tweakers/uninstallers.

    Try disabling driver signing in Windows 8.

    The steps to install a unsigned driver on windows 8 is as follows.

    1. From windows 8 control panel choose General –> Under “Advanced Startup” –> Restart now.

    Now the system will restart and might take some minutes to show up the boot menu. Wait for It patiently.

    After some time you will be prompted with a menu with following options.

    1. Continue

    2. Troubleshoot

    3. Turn off

    Choose Troubleshoot

    Then the following menu appears.

    Refresh your PC
    Reset your PC
    Advanced Options
    Choose Advanced Options

    Then the following menu appears

    System Restore
    System Image Recovery
    Automatic Repair
    Command Prompt
    Windows Startup settings
    Choose Windows Startup Settings, then Click Restart.

    Now the computer will restart and the boot menu appears. Choose “Disable Driver signature Enforcement” from the menu. Now windows will start and you can do the installation of the driver that is not signed.

    How do i modify the sharpness ? Couldn't find this option in nvidia control panel.
    NVIDIA SSAA
    "Added negative LOD adjustments for NVIDIA’s full-screen sparse grid supersampling mode to improve image sharpness"

    No problems to report on my end. Not sure if blind or what but I cant see and performance increase in Dragon age 2. Every other game i've tested so far appears to be playing better. Or maybe it's placebo. Either way i'll keeps use this driver for now.

    thanks, tested this and the game runs normally at least, haven't arrived at any slow down areas yet though to see if this helps any.

    Do you have to disable driver signing permanently on Windows 8 to use those drivers? When I tried using the 310.33-drivers my Windows-8-installation refused to boot until I uninstalled them.
