    very strange that you get better performance with such an old 680 as the new drivers are always optimized for new games and new card o_O

    No performance boost here!:(
     
  6. 20% higher that sounds amazing . What driver was you using before?

    Not sure something quite old, 32o something. Settings in OP gave me about 50+ fps average with frequent drops into 40s and even occasional 20s - I had to play with DOF on medium and speed blur on medium too to get 60-70fps. Now I get 60-70 with these settings maxxed.
     
  8. That explains it , their was what they called a wonder driver that came out a while back cant remember the number , so if u havent updated for a while then that will be why.

    I was jumping from 347.09 to .25 and there was amazing 1% performance increase on GTX 660 OC'd... but considering that maaany earlier updated did not bring any improvements and that the card is kind of old... it's a PLUS! :D
    They definitely optimized some stuff on this update. (Also I run pretty low on special effects. It's possible that with things that use special architecture like anti-aliasing, reflections etc tuned up to High/max there would be a bigger increase.)

    I run with GTX 780Ti 3Gb Driver 340.52 and really no bad problems so "if it aint broke don't fix it" I reckon.
    If you research the Nvidia forum there are some unhappy customers that have changed over to 347.25.

    I'll wait a bit longer I think before I jump.
    It has taken me this long to be happy with what I have got, nothing worse than having problems and to be p##### off with AC again.
    :):)

    I started a thread about this a few days ago as well. Im definitely seeing a boost in performance. Not only in assetto but in other games as well

    I don't doubt there are improvements in the new drivers but I would be unlucky enough to be the one to stuff up.:mad:
    I suppose you could just roll back drivers but I don't know whether that always works out to go back correctly?
     
  13. I agree with the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" philosophy. I installed the 337.88 drivers when my new PC arrived in August last year, and I am still using them. If you are installing the latest drivers to try and get your framerates up to 62 from 60 (for example), then you might want to reconsider in the future if it all goes tits up now. It's different if new drivers introduce additional features and upgrades that make a significant difference to your games, but releases of that type are generally few and far between.

    if someone can remember the number of those magic drivers, that would be great! thanks.
     
  16. Any driver after basically has the "magic" lol so just install the latest ones .

    Sure, but can you imagine that my current drivers are newer that the magic ones, so that no need to update:rolleyes:

    This was wise in the past when installing display drivers was a nightmare task you only attempted when you had lots of time to put things right. But nowadays, installing any version of a driver you want is so easy that you can pretty much have these things auto-update imo.

    installing drivers with 3 screens rig can still turn into a nightmare! I have had once to reinstall Windows because of screen resolution that went wild :mad:

    Upgraded from September 2014 331.82 and can't really see much difference.

    The fogging seems to be a bit more obvious, the ailiasing maybe look a little better...

    Nvidia recommends everyone upgrade to these drivers. They unlock features and improvements on older cards after the release of new cards quite frequently. But if your good at configuring your card you might not notice improvments. If your running everything stock then you'll see some improvement.

    The reason nvidia does this into maintain a degree of parity and not force developers to write backward compatable drivers in their games. Consoles do this also, over time drivers/firmware changes to access other memory regions etc.

    It's the way of hardware evolution. The way to determine if you should upgrade is if it suggests it improves all supported card models. MSAA enabled for all cards now? Great! Otherwise they are writing drivers for specific game or supported 3rd party hardware features... But even these can help other games too as they enhance existing options on the cards.

    I'll install these later today.
