    Nah 344.11 framelimiting threw nvidia inspector is kinda broke. I limit Swtor at 60fps game normal read 59 and so did most ever other frame counter for as long as i remember now 60 limit reports like 62/63 same effect with any game i limit threw inspector

    Idk then maybe windows issue, Im at win8.1 or even GF104/GK104 specific..

    But I know its ok here and works as it should, it shows 59.9 or 60.0fps, COD ghosts is the only game I have to use nvinspctor fps limiter, otherwise im using msi ab rtss by rest rest.

    Just played Quake4 and Nvinspector fps limit 60fps works too.


    btw is MFAA active/appears only if I use forced/enahnced MSAA?

    Well now I saw it in Q4, Im using enhanced 8xMSAA + 8xTrAA SS.

    These r343 surprise me more and more, MFAA is already here on Kepler too :nerd:
    now all I need is proper DSR (upscaling quality doesn't do anything though),

    Does the MFAA setting work for non-Maxwell cards with inspector?

    Well I tested some more in COD BO2, using ingame 8xmsaa, then enhanced that to 8xmsaa in nvcpl + MFAA on top and I noticed it smoothed the image further - less MSAA shimmering, kinda like using FXAA on top but with sharper image..


    So I guess it does work.

    Pictures,Fraps videos or it didn't happen :p
    Doesn't do anything, not even change GPU usage for me.

    Also: Isn't it apparently not finished yet either?

    These seem to cause stuttering in Skyrim.

    I get a steady 60fps, but it randomly stutters,
    like the frame dips for a split second. This was
    not the case with the last WHQL.

    It also causes some MKV videos files to not play.

    Hope we get an updated, proper driver soon.

    Performance hit should be minimal its @ 2xMSAA at best or even less, its mostly to enhance it a bit, not totally smooth the edges out.


    Why wouldn't it be finished., check their homepage. But then again you have Fermi not Kepler..



    Anyway I did try to compare but its hard to get exact the same spot, this is what I noticed when zoomed in.. With MFAA it appears to have more antialiasing.

    with mfaa i was ~0.5m further away then with msaa, really doubt it would somehow antialis more because of that, usually its the opposite closer more antialiaisng further less.

    I wonder what happens when you enable FXAA and MFAA, lol

    You can even see the stutter if you just move around windows on the desktop.
    Every 2-3 seconds it lags. You will also see this stutter in DXVA2 videos.

    Only thing that solves this is a reboot. Then it will work for a couple of hours.

    I'm back to 340.

    RAGE is retarded on my gtx980 with these drivers, it might not matter because it runs 60 fps minumum but it defaults the memory to 6000mhz which is less than default and it ignores the concept of boost clocks entirely as well as overclocks, the core stays at 1125 all the time.

    I have it overclocked to 7800memory and 1516boost core but it ignores that. It's also not a reporting error as msi reports the downclocking of the memory and the core clock.

    It doesn't happen in Wolfenstein so it isn't a blanket engine problem.

    It seems like it might be working, but I think it could be a placebo effect. I didn't see a lot of differences in image quality, or performance when turning it on, while playing Arkham Origins.
    Geforce.com did say that they're still working on it, and I think it would be implemented as a feature in the control panel.

    I will most likely go back a version. These are the first drivers
    that I have had issues with since getting my 780 last summer.

    These were supposed to bring balance to the force... KHAAAN!! :cussing:

    Let's hope they sprinkle fairy dust on the next release.

    Where did you notice any issues, so far they're very good for my 780GTX, didnt have any problems yet.

    But did you also enhance/force normal AA (in nvcpl) while forcing MFAA on top? I think its the only way how it works, or did I understand it wrong.

    EDIT: btw these were original screens from that closeup above

    8xmsaa
    [​IMG]

    8xmsaa + mfaa
    [​IMG]

    And with forced MFAA it should work less and the screen shows lower gpu usage by 2nd screen, since gpu doesnt have to do all pixels all the time..




    I will try to test again and pay more attention to camera angle and distance. :nerd:

    I can confirm that it does work. I was downsampling 2880x1620---->+MFAA. I think that is = to 8xOGSSAA+MFAA. I knew I wasn't crazy, but I turned it off....since I was losing like 10fps.

    so Im going to say it.


    how well will this driver will work with windows 10?

    I have a disk partition set up on a non important drive.

    and plan on testing out my hardware/software making sure everything works.

    They should be releasing a preview driver like they did with Windows 8
