    Hmm a little confused here bu the bioshock infinite profile for AO?

    Does this mean it's an SLI profile?

    Not a clue, I'm afraid. That's Manuel's department, and he's currently enjoyed a well-earned holiday.

    GeForce GTX 680:

    Up to 41% faster in BioShock Infinite
    Up to 60% faster in Tomb Raider
    Up to 23% faster in Sniper Elite V2
    Up to 13% faster in Sleeping Dogs


    I dont like this 41% upgrade for Bioshock Infinite.Maybe another fail like Tomb Raider?Smells to me something like its messed up AGAIN.btw i have a GTX660Ti but here it shows changes for GTX680?2 things that annoy me here:


    1st)Would there be any changes to my 660Ti even thought it says about 680?

    2nd)Why do they always keep listing and reporting changes since the last 3 or 4 drivers to 680 only?Dont they care for 660Ti or 670?Why always supporting the celebrity cards like 680 690 and titan?



    Yes i do really smell something very fishy with Bioshocks 41% upgrade.Lets see the following reports in performance when the game will come.

    Does this driver add support for Trials Evolution Gold Edition from Ubisoft/RedLynx which was released on 25th March 2013? Currently this game have serious performance issues on systems with two or more graphics cards regardless of whether Single GPU mode is forced on or not. The only way to fix the issue is to disable SLI, force dedicated PhysX to one GPU or create a profile and force SFR rendering, the latter of which results in a longer than normal black screen as the loading screens are not shown. The developers are insistent that updated drivers are required to fix this issue but despite asking twice on the GeForce.com I have not received any response from NVIDIA that they are even aware of the issue nevermind working to fix it.

    Also, the release notes for this driver mention adding Ambient Occlusion support for BioShock Infinite but I have to ask why as one of the DX11 features I've seen mentioned is HDAO (High Def Ambient Occlusion) support so why does it need a driver flag as well?

    Obviously there will be improvements, just not as much. It says so in the article.

    And yea there definitely is something wrong with the game hence the huge increase in FPS, but glad it's fixed as soon as the game's out, that's top-notch support :) Now lets see if it has the old code again like TR did.

    Except this time the updated drivers are out before the game's release not 10 days after!!! Admittedly, many people will likely play the game without realising there are updated drivers but they are there for when they need them at least.

    This driver has been released before the game is even out. Prior to that, according to the graphs, a 680 could hit 60 fps with everything maxed at 1902x1080 anyway. Now they can hit over 75. Nothing seems fishy about that at all - just seems like good driver support to me.

    They say in every single driver release article that they can't test and post results on every single card due to time constraints. Improvements are noticeable across the whole range of 600 and even 500 series cards, although to a lesser extent on lower models. They've included the GTX 660 in some of the graphs - gauge your performance from that.

    When that happens unplug the display cable from the GPU and then plug it back in. Worked for me after I had the black screen after the driver install.

    Probably, TR needs to be updated (new patch is supposed to be released today) as well for this new TR optimzation in v314.22 AndyB talked about to take effect.

    The previous 314 drivers were unstable for me, I hope I have better luck with these.

    you guys are killing me with the over brightness on hdmi connections.

    black screens are bright gray, unless I switch rgb to the other setting. but the other setting is too color saturated.

    so I been using the full RGB tool to fix the problem

    I only have this problem with 300 series drivers. I didnt have it with any 200 series drives.

    Does this fix the black screen install issue (esp for Sony Vaio laptops)? Stuck on 310.90...
