    Nice, guess the Ansel update can't be too far off now for Witcher 3 and Mirrors Edge Catalyst as this driver adds support for that feature.

    Also game ready for a bunch of VR titles and "Obduction" has a profile added for it that disables SLI.

    EDIT: Or only Mirrors Edge Catalyst going by the release notes.

    EDIT: PDF quotes.
    EDIT: [​IMG]

    Huh Mirror's Edge Catalyst wasn't even listed but now it seems to be the first game out with support for Ansel, what with all the demoing in Witcher 3 I had assumed that game would be first.
    (Then again take a less popular game and see how the feature is received and what people like and dislike about it and make it ready with those adjustments in time for support for future, more popular games.)

    EDIT: GeForce.com Mirror's Edge Catalyst and Ansel article.

    Oh, right, I forgot about the VR titles support. So there's a reason to release Game Ready drivers in July 8)

    Isn't the performance where it should be?
    In DX11 games the GTX980 sit below around 15 to 25FPS behind a GTX980Ti, the AMD RX480 sits around the same on DOOM VULKAN.

    People see the huge gains AMD gets from Vulkan compared to OpenGL and people expect the same on Nvidia but if you compare in average the performance is where it should be even on Vulkan.

    edit: example The Wither 3, see the gap between the 980 and the 980 Ti.

    GTA V and plenty more are the pretty much the same.

    The RX480 is comparable to a GTX980 in most cases so I think it is a valid comparison, not to mention AMD themselves marketed as a 2x480 beating a single GTX1080 and in average the GTX1080 beats SLI GTX980.

    you should by now it won't happen, until the witcher 3 buzz will happen all over again, only if all people will request it on all forums, only then some "magic" driver will appear.

    Vulkan runtime version remains the same so yeah, don't expect some vulkan update soon

    They have lol.

    Both Vive through display port and dvi clocking problems fixed.

    If you think you're not getting enough performance in Doom, then, I think it's time to get counselling.

    As per the driver notes about improvements for this title the "Nvidia VR Fun House" game/VR benchmark/GPU demo is also out now for demonstrating Nvidia's VR capabilities. :)
    (Requires a Nvidia GPU.)

    Seems to be pretty demanding on the GPU or well GPU's as it appears that three of them are recommended with two GPU's doing one eye each and the third for PhysX.

    In other requirements the 1070 is used as recommended for the low preset and the 1080 for medium with 1080 'or greater' for high alternatively a 980Ti SLI setup.

    Eh it's part benchmark so I guess the high requirements reflect that.

    It's ridiculously easy to stay above 60fps in Doom, even with fermi, i don't know what the issue is. There is a limit on how much improvement can be done to a game.

    Nvidia control panel seems to be instant now. Don't have to wait ages for it to scan games before you can change settings, hurray! A much requested fix, nice.

    Onto games now...

    I guess people are mad AMD got a huge boost from vulkan. but yeah, doom ran amazing on day 1 for me, and I finished it without needing to wait months for 60+ fps.

    Yup also ID said they are using some ASync compute features even in Vulkan.. so it seems AMD will have the advantage as Nvidia doesn't have any hardware Async Compute support especially in Maxwell and earlier generation cards.

    Well they added limited support in Pascal, but it isn't quite the same as the AMD setup.


    Still though there isn't that many games using ASync features, so I don't think it will be a big issue unless a ton of games start using it.
