    The new GeForce 310.61 beta drivers are now available to download. Otherwise identical to last week's 310.54 beta driver, 310.61 beta improves compatibility in Hitman: Absolution and Planetside 2, and supports a new Black Ops II SLI profile that's available through NVIDIA update.

    Windows Vista, 7, and 8 32-bit and 64-bit desktop and notebook downloads available at: http://www.guru3d.com/files_details/geforce_310_61_beta_driver_download.html

    If you have any feedback please leave a comment in this thread, and if you have a technical issue please report the problem direct to Manuel via the NVIDIA Display Driver Feedback Form. This will allow us to file bugs and work on any issues immediately.

    Thanks,

    I picked up 1 fps in the Hitman benchmark vs. 310.54 beta. I wasn't expecting miracles - gpu usage was already at 99% throughout.

    What about the slowdowns in Borderlands 2, are they game engine related?
    It would help if they released a BL2 benchmark tool.

    Odd how Borderlands 2 was hyped as a major Nvidia game, very few driver optimisations and although Gearbox have released quiet a few game patches, none have really addressed the performance, or the textures issues in the Pirate DLC, and today they are releasing the second DLC

    They were meant to, not sure if they still are. Every time I ask gearbox about performance issues they just respond with currently working on it lol.

    Anyway, installed these and looking forward to Planetside2 being released :D

    Anyone else have higher idle clocks with gtx 670/680 with the last few drivers including this one? Please check all.

    I had the same issue... until I realised that maxed settings @ 1920x1200 with 8xMSAA + FXAA was using 1,954 MB. In other words, the pauses I was experiencing came from my GTX 680s running out of VRAM and I got this error message after the game froze and eventually crashed back to the desktop:

    [​IMG]

    Even 4xMSAA uses 1.5 GB of VRAM and the game runs at 50-60 fps on the Tutorial mission I'm playing (I'm inside the mansion, past the security door) but, nevertheless, feels juddery/stuttery and nowhere near as smooth as it should do at that framerate.

    P.S. That was with the v310.54 beta driver as I've not had the chance to try these new ones yet.

    Anyone checked if Bf3 still crashes with these like with 310.54?

    Oh, there was no issue, Darren. My point was that I wasn't expecting improved performance on the driver side of things given that I was already getting full usage of my gpu. I was only using 4xMSAA and had plenty of VRAM headroom - no stutters or crashes, but performance only in the 40-60 fps range.

    I ended up turning off all in-game AA and using SweetFX's SMAA injector, which looks great and has minimal fps impact.

    Cheers.

    Seeing they are the same as the previous apart from some SLI profiles i will skip them. Both 310's caused issues for me.

    They're game compatibility updates, not SLI profiles.

    Yep. The game still rarely crashes. But fps in game is really good.

    No, Windows 8 Pro 64-bit.

    @ Uncle Dude - Sorry, I saw you mention 1 fps and assumed you were talking about the game itself. Ooops, that'll teach me not to read things out of context. /blush
