NVIDIA Releases GeForce 331.82 WHQL Drivers Ahead of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag

NVIDIA has released GeForce 331.82 WHQL drivers! NVIDIA says that this update is ideal for all GeForce GTX users and that Geforce 331.82 WHQL is the Game Ready driver for Assassin’s Creed IV and Need For Speed Rivals. GeForce 331.82 WHQL drivers also bring major improvements for 4K gamers running at 3840×2160 screen resolutions. By doing a ton of optimizations, NVIDIA was able to get up to 50% faster framerates in Battlefield 4, Crysis 3, and Metro: Last Light at 3840×2160!

GeForce 331.82 WHQL also includes GeForce Experience 1.7.1, which includes the long-awaited ShadowPlay Beta, an innovative gameplay recording tool that can constantly record the action with a minimal performance impact thanks to the H.264 encoder built into GeForce GTX 600 and 700 Series GPUs.

You can download 331.82 WHQL directly from the Drivers page. For the complete set of release notes please click here.

    I have both a GTX 460 and an GTX 650 Ti Boost on two different machines. A few months ago I updated drivers and started getting systems freezes on both machines, especially every time the system would try to come out of standby … it would freeze and have to be cold-booted. I tried rolling back to several older versions of the drivers, but for the GTX 460, only 314.07 is stable and for the GTX 650 Ti Boost, I am now testing 314.22 (every driver after that causes the freezes). I called Nvidia tech support and they are the ones who suggested that 314.07 would be stable for the GTX 460, admitting there is an issue. I am not sure how newer drivers get the WHLQ label because a huge number of people have reported/blogged about this problem with Nvidia drivers. I am scared to use an Nvidia board for my next computer.

    Three WHQL drivers in a row? That must have cost quite a bit… usually it’s 2-3 beta drivers between WHQL
