HERE COMES THE GREEN BEAST NVIDIA :D

NVIDIA-GeForce-337.50-Driver-4-850x495.j

 

The latest GeForce driver is almost here, there’s still no access to download link, but at least we have more info.

Most of those slides were created with a system equipped with Intel Core i7 3960K CPU at 1080p resolution. It does matter, since we are talking about CPU bottleneck here, and 6core systems will surely benefit more than quad-core.

According to new slides you should expect up to 71% better performance in SLI and 64% with single-GPU configuration. Of course, don’t get too excited. Such results will be seen only one one game – Total War: Rome 2, which was not necessarily poorly written, but surely bottlenecked by the DX API.

Gamers who own COH Black Ops 2, Sleeping Dogs, Aliens vs Predator, Sniper Elite and even Thief and Battlefield 4 will surely like the new driver. We are looking at average 10-20% improvement in those games. How will this affect other titles? In few hours we will know the answer.
btw Thief didnt have SLI support, only CF and that was patched in late, boost is due to SLI prob

I assume this performance improvement only goes for their newest cards, essentially hyping up a lot of people by lying in their face. I'd love to see some extra frames in BF4 on my 560ti.

"Normalized FPS"

 

What kind of a metric is this?

 

Also:

 

Most of those slides were created with a system equipped with Intel Core i7 3960K CPU at 1080p resolution. It does matter, since we are talking about CPU bottleneck here, and 6core systems will surely benefit more than quad-core.

Considering the 780ti is 200-300$ more than a 290x [at least here, where they havn't shot up because of mining] it seems like a reasonable difference. and AMD CCC 14.4 WHQL is comin in a few days ^^

 

And it's interesting that they didn't graph the 780 which is in the same price bracket :D

Someone fanboyed in their pants. What a mess!

 

There's a few problems though:

  • The difference in BF4 with 290x between dx11 and mantle is far larger than 780ti between the old and new driver.
  • Does anyone have any idea what "normalized frames per second" is? How much is 0,07 nfps? Epic matrix derp.
  • Mantle still owns Star Swarm. If mantle becomes part of Dx12, then everyone, including nvidia, will benefit.

PLEASE stop spamming the entire page with a pointless nvidia image at the end. It holds no relavance.

Wow, 1.15 FPS? That sounds pretty terrible to me.

I think normalized is pretty easy to understand. If the FPS R9 290X gets is 100% then GTX 780ti with the new drivers will be nearly 120% of performance. If, let's say, R9 290X gets 100FPS, then GTX 780ti will get 120. It is a dumb metric I know, but it shows they are trying to hide the raw numbers because the difference will be insignificant. Also, that graph if full of shit. Look at the GTX 780ti's performance before the new drivers, it is already better than the 290X with mantle according to them and not all that worse than the gtx 780ti with the new drivers. So, TLDR those graphs and that title is full of shit, please sort it out, it sounds biased and sad really. Will Nvidia GPUs perform better with the new drivers? Yes. Is it a big difference? No, and you can thank mantle for the existence of a difference at all. AMD brought the competition and forced M$ and Nvidia to reply [with directx12 and new drivers]...
