On the GTX 680, performance improved by up to 17.6% in Batman: Arkham City, 12.4% in Dragon Age 2, 4% in Lost Planet 2 and 9.8% in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat.. Other improvements include enhancements to the control panel with game profiles, user experience enhancements such as, new and updated SLI profiles and new and updated 3D Vision profiles. They are also required for the new GTX 660 and GTX 650 cards, since older drivers won’t support them. The drivers can be downloaded from the link below and the full list of enhancements viewed.
With the launch of a recent update for The Secret World, gamers can now leverage TXAA, a new super high-quality anti-aliasing technique introduced alongside the latest Kepler GPUs. Designed specifically to reduce temporal aliasing, TXAA is a combination of hardware anti-aliasing, custom anti-aliasing resolves, and a temporal filter.
