    OMG

    Tested Hitman Absolution, the only one I remember

    334.89 -> 72fps
    337.50 -> 79.randomdecimal fps

    And I have my frames capped at 80, so this is just brilliant!

    Also why has geforce not updated the front page?

    I'm not sure what did i do wrong when uninstalling/installing this driver. I used DDU to uninstall the older driver and then installed the new one but my device manager just says "Device has stopped because it reported problems code 43" and after restart i can't launch nvidia controll panel :|

    Awesome. Hitman is cpu bottlenecked in Ultra because drawcalls of reflections.

    Not sure why people are expecting ArmA 3 / DayZ FPS increases...

    for one its DX9 and two, everyone knows how CPU bound that engine is, and how it'll likely never change.

    Hitman increase looks nice :p - Wish I wasn't at work...

    Did you use DDU under safe mode ? also if on win 8/ 8.1 you have to disable the driver signature control.

    I just did a clean install while disabling the driver signature thing (F7)

    Hoping it helps

    Can't wait till Hilbert finishes a review on these. Now it's becoming clear why Nvidia didn't seem to care too much about Mantle. Thumbs up boyz in green!

    Actually that means that it can record windowed (fullscreen) games. Awesome.

    No fps increase visible in Rift, but since it's DX9, i kinda expected that.

    Looks promising. I wonder how long it will take AMD to implement the same method?
    I think Nvidia found a work around that they implemented form their recent DirectX 12 involvement.

    From initial benchmarks i think Mantle is a bigger game changer but this is a nice stop gap with benefits seen across many games until DX12 comes out in 2015.

    Maybe like... forever? There drivers still can't do anything with multithreaded code as far as I'm aware.
