NVIDIA Release GeForce 310.64 Beta Drivers with updates for Far Cry 3
NVIDIA have released a GeForce 310.64 beta driver for it’s graphics cards.
This is what NVIDIA have posted on their blog:
The new GeForce 310.64 beta drivers are now available to download. Featuring the same performance boosts as the 310.54 and 310.61 beta drivers, today’s release gets your system ready for Far Cry 3, which launches in Europe tomorrow, and next Tuesday in North America.
In addition to maximizing compatibility in the new, performance-intensive first-person shooter, the 310.64 beta drivers improve performance by up to 37.6% in the configurations we’ve tested. Furthermore, the previously-released SLI profile is also included, allowing multi-GPU users to maximize performance the moment the game launches.
Using the most popular gaming resolution, 1920×1080, we maxed out Far Cry 3′s many graphics options, selected SSAO Ambient Occlusion (an excellent balance between performance and fidelity), set the game’s version of Transparency Supersampling to “Standard”, and enabled 8xMSAA to eliminate those pesky jaggies. As you can see below, today’s 310.64 beta driver boosted performance significantly, helping the GTX 670 and GTX 680 achieve playable frame rates at this demanding detail level. Please note that we expect improvements of varying degrees to be seen on any system utilizing a GeForce GTX 400, 500, or 600 series GPU, but due to time constraints we were unable to run comprehensive, in-depth tests ahead of the driver’s release.
With regards to the issues you’ve experienced in games such as Battlefield 3 and Assassin’s Creed III, we are actively working to fix them and hope to get most resolved for our upcoming WHQL driver.
