NVIDIA's beta R313 driver with performance enhancements for Crysis 3 (among other titles) has now received WHQL certification. We wouldn't expect much of a difference in performance relative to the beta drivers, but NVIDIA states they provide up to a 5% performance improvement in Crysis 3 with GTX 680. As usual, you can grab the drivers for all current desktop and mobile NVIDIA GPUs:

Desktop 314.07 Windows Vista/7/8 64-bit
Desktop 314.07 Windows Vista/7/8 32-bit
Mobile 314.07 Windows Vista/7/8 64-bit
Mobile 314.07 Windows Vista/7/8 32-bit

Thanks go as usual to reader SH SOTN for the quick notification.

    I'd just like to have reliable HDMI audio, without having to disable and re-enable hdmi audio in the Nvidia driver every single time I switch my receiver back to PC from another source. Let's get the basics right before tweaking performance. Reply

    Interesting, which card and OS are you using? I've never had this happen and all I use for audio is HDMI, PC HDMI -> TV -> Optical out to surround sound. Reply

    Yep I have the exact same issue. In addition, nvidia has never fixed the "silent stream bug". Hdmi audio is the one place amd definitely beats nvidia in (at least wrt drivers). Reply

    Do these drivers have any references to GK110 based parts? Reply

    Up to 5% or 105% performance?

    I'd consider 5% a pretty huge regression.

    Fixed, Mr. Snark. :p Reply

    These versions all require additional 12mV (default 1.0V) to OC gtx460 to 850-1700-4000 and hence lead to 3~5C increase in temperature. Reply
