How about you title the article, "Nvidia's 334.89 WHQL Drivers Boost Performance for 8 Games." I think that would relate to the article better.

And also need to mention that these improvements are what Nvidia is claiming, not what Tom's is reporting from testing in the title. Like, "Nvidia's 334.89 WHQL Drivers Claim They Boost Performance for 8 Games."

I just want Mount and Blade to be boosted from 200fps to 600fps, and to post a comment at Tomshardware. The second has been accomplished Nvidia, :D

Actually it should mention that this driver sucks and you should stay on 332.21. If you take 2 seconds to read the responses on the GeForce.com forums you'll see this driver has improved almost nothing.What sucks is that it actually had a noticeable improvement in G-Sync for BF4 (which isn't formally mentioned) but the FPS dropped.A lot of users are reporting much worse issues such as Surround not working, flickering screens, black screens, etc. This driver doesn't seem to have much to offer and Shadowplay with G-Sync is still screwed.

I "upgraded" to this driver last night in desperation - I've had nothing but issues with my card for months (flickering, black screens, driver getting blown away every time windows installs updates.) The best "help" their support has been able to give me is to roll back to a driver from last March as this has "been successful for others with my issues."Oh, and they also told me to trouble shoot my Windows update issues by seeing how well in works on Linux.Keep up the great work, Nvidia - you're doing a bang-up job of driving me back to ATI.

Sound like you have a defective card friend. I would return it for a new one.

So, instead of claiming that the new drivers are great, why doesn't ANYONE point out that the old ones were demonstrably crap?
Good point. However, I think something to this effect is to be expected with newer hardware. Its not an exact science to optimize drivers for individual games. I'm glad to see they're keeping up with their support.

I agree with Thor220. I had the same types of issues with an AMD APU, I thought it was just underpowered but when contacting support it turned out to be a defective product. When I had the laptop replaced (covered by warranty) it worked flawlessly, within its own limits. I'd recommend checking with the manufacturer to have it replaced. If warranty has already expired you may be able to escalate through support to get someone with authority to acknowledge its defective and still honor the defective product, but no guarantees. Best of luck.

I remember reading the update notes yesterday thinking, I haven't played a single one of these games in a long time ... Then I thought, oh god, NVIDIA hasnt actually been working on these improvements since they came out, have they? Then I thought, if they haven't been, then why on earth would they suddenly find % increases in these games and not newer titles.

I just wanna remind you it is a beta. It will go through optimization on the developers end and the drivers end in no time. I play on lowest settings and although i hated the COD series, I can't seem to put this game down.

I'm curious where you came to that conclusion, have you worked with graphics API's prior? I'd love to hear some reference regarding how its an exact science. I've done some googling in my time but have not seen anything that makes it sound as if API's are as easy as you make it sound.
