    I like these drivers. I played about 50 minutes BF3 End game capture the flag and my SLI is performing really well. No GPU usage drops to be reported. So far enjoying these drivers. ;)

    ps: Can't wait to try them on Bioshock: Infinite when i get home !!! :)

    I still get that seriously annoying pause while playing BF3. I know I'm not alone because I see it in video's people post. The game literally pauses for a second, and it happens often.

    Look at my post... if you look at the graph overlay I can see a cpu spike every 30 seconds to a minute. It's random as well. Yellow line has a long spike causing my video to skip. Didn't have this in the last driver.

    I like these drivers though because Black Ops 2 is so smooth.

    Wow, and here was me thinking that I was alone here, I'm too getting these weird small freezes/pauses in BF3 (PS2 was somewhat stuttery as well).

    I don't recall getting these with R310, In fact, I downgraded to 310.90, and I got them with those as well, so maybe the latest patch introduced this?

    We should get ManuelG and AndyB to comment on this.

    Currently using 314.09.

    These are indeed much better for Bioshock Infinite. I gained around 20fps average over 314.07 with max settings at 1920x1080. That being said, the game isn't very demanding and it stayed well over 60fps the entire time. Like 40-200fps over.

    Also, I love the simple benchmark tool they included with the game. :)

    I encountered CS:GO graphic glitch with this and the previous 314.21 driver, where the hands are literally seen through.

    Crysis 1 performance is also borked with highest settings at 1080p for Nvidia Titan. Couldn't even get over 20fps. o_O But that's been screwed since 314.07 WHQL

    *EDIT*

    Nevermind. Seems Crysis 1 performance is caused only in 314.07 and 314.21. 314.22 only has the 24Hz bug, and i forgot to run it in windows mode. ^^"

    this is why I'm "afraid" to update. I'm still on 296,10 :bang:.
    I calibrated my 46" sammy and really don't want to go thrue that again.

    BTW how are these with Skyrim cos that's the only game I play currently?

    cheers.

    So far so good for black ops 2 and starcraft 2 and no weird driver resets/crashes in explorer.

    i must admit that i'm extremely happy nvidia is releasing updated drivers regularly and they all performed exceptionally well on my rig with a massive performance increase in Tomb Raidah :D

    the 314.22 are also great, haven't purchased Bioshock nFinite yet, but its good to have drivers ready for the game.

    all in all i'm satisfied. ;)

    I can agree these drivers are causing some sort of stutter bug in Battlefield 3 again. The previous set of betas were totally fine.

    I've tried Tomb Raider and Bioshock and both are fine but BF3 is my main game so I'm going to have to uninstall and revert back :(

    Granted this is the first time I've just "installed over the top" of the previous drivers so I'm going to uninstall manually/Driver Cleaner.net/Re-install and see if that helps. If not I'll uninstall and put the previous betas on.

    Rock solid driver for me so far. It fixed an annoying bug I had with the previous release where some games would dump me out of full screen and into windowed mode (Sleeping Dogs, NFS:MW). Haven't had the chance to take it for a spin with the latest releases yet, though.

    Edit: Just FYI, not seeing any stuttering in BF3 on my end. This BF3 stutter is really a weird issue. Seems to be hit and miss, as I have definitely had it before on some driver versions while not on others.

    Well I've just done an hour now with the drivers uninstalled/driver cleaner.net/ re-installed and they seem a little smoother. Not as good as the previous set but I think I need to test them more this evening. Will report back on my findings.

    I noticed micro stutter only if I have V-sync enabled on NVCP. If I set it to 3D application setting then turn V-sync on in game settings it's perfectly smooth.

    why call this driver beta?
    It's not WHQL?
