    Just try the inf from the previous 344.11 ;) Should be the same. Or add manually your DeviceID with the same strings as the 970/980 (no magic needed!).

    Example for my GTX770 (Device ID 1184, Vendor 10DE (NVIDIA):
    1) Look out for the section [NVIDIA_SetA_Devices.NTamd64.6.0]
    2) Add these lines:
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1184% = Section034, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1184
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1184% = Section035, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1184
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1184% = Section036, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1184
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1184% = Section037, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1184

    3) Look out for the section [Strings] and add this line:

    NVIDIA_DEV.1184 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770"

    Voila. Don't forget to boot in the non driver-signing required mode at windows 8+.

    Edit: You can get you device ID with GPU-Z, Inspector or via the Hardware-Manager (rightclick on your videocard->properties->details->Hardware Ids). In my case its PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1184&SUBSYS_28271462&REV_A1.

    Anyone know how to enable MFAA? I have a GTX 970 in my rig and want to try it with bf4 but just toggling "Enable sample interleaving (MFAA)" under "Other" in the profile is inconclusive as to the effect in the test range for me in motion... framerate stays identical, and I don't think it's working as quality appears literally the same zoomed in at 200% on the same spot of the screen on geometry with a BMP screenshot comparison. How do I actually enable it?

    EDIT: Per techreport it is not enabled in the current drivers yet. It will be available on-off for all games with no need for game integration like txaa had, though which is great news!

    Modded x64, windows Vista/7/8/8.1 INF from international driver.

    dunno if that makes any difference atm, because now when I DL'd international link it has the same nvdisp like US only, instead of nvdispi like usually.


    nv_disp.inf

    http://www56.zippyshare.com/v/23979265/file.html


    Disable driver signature if @ win8.x..


    I didnt rename, I coped corresponding strings, that renaming is not so good.
