The new NVIDIA GeForce 310.90 WHQL driver out today offers speed boosts in several games. In particular, it offers up to 38% improvement for Far Cry 3 on a GTX 680. For Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 it delivers up to 26% improvement and 18% for Assassin’s Creed III, also on a GTX 680. The new driver also delivers “smooth, shimmer-free graphics with TXAA antialiasing in both games”.
Other improvements include new SLI profiles for Far Cry 3, Black Ops 2, Dota 2 and more. There are also updated 3D Vision profiles for a long list of games including Black Ops 2, Assassin’s Creed III and Dishonored which is surprisingly still only rated as “fair”. NVIDIA have also included a security update for their Display Driver service (nvvsvc.exe). The full list of improvements can be seen at the link below and the new driver downloaded. Alternatively, the new driver can downloaded from your current driver control panel.
