    95% of main improvements are SLI related, so if you run on a single GPU and your present whql driver is fine, just stay with it. Trust me.

    OK I'll trust some random off the internet somewhere.. :3eyes:

    Anyway it's not true there's no single gpu improvements with this driver, while most are sli fixes there's still important single gpu fixes like the BFBC2 stuttering.

    OP happens to know Everything. Just trust him ;)

    Therefore, 5% of main improvements are single GPU related. And that's enough for most of us.

    3dmark boosts, more stable than 280.xx, higher fps in dx11 games and applications...yeah OP, you're right, these drivers sucks.
    Better stay with whql with 200 driver crashes, more heat and less optimizations.

    The 285 series contains quite a lot of fixes for some unreleased games, so even single GPU users will benefit from them in the near future.

    GUYS! This man speaks the truth! Don't make the same mistake I did. I installed this driver and I only use single GPU. Well things were going smoothly then all of a sudden my graphics card started making this odd noise. Like a growling. I opened my case and all of a sudden the graphics card sprang to life and started to eat my face.
    It turned my GPU into a ZOMBIE!
    Luckily my cat was near by so I threw him at it and while it ate I swiftly removed these drivers.

    So yeah whatever you do DON'T USE THESE DRIVERS.

    Did you notice "uglier" AA? I think this is where the performance boost came from.


    I saw a bit worse AA in UT3 (less detailed in the distance and at certain angles), well with both 32xCsaa and 16xQaa it looked the same. heh Masseffect2 AA string helped a bit, but its not 100% it like it was with default ut3 AA string and older 270.xx driver..




    @ Thread starter
    sorry but you are wrong.
