Headline features include performance optimizations of up to 19%, over a dozen new and improved 3D Vision profiles, half a dozen new SLI profiles, and support for the newly-launched GeForce GTX TITAN Black, GeForce GTX 750 Ti, and GeForce GTX 750. Additionally, there are numerous tweaks and changes to ensure maximum performance and system stability in all titles, as detailed in the release notes.

Performance Optimizations

Today’s Microsoft-certified WHQL driver increases performance by up to 19% in over half a dozen titles. Gains were measured on the GeForce GTX TITAN, GTX 780 Ti, GTX 780, and GTX 770, but should apply to other GPUs also. (please note that results will vary depending on your GPU and system configuration).

  • Up to 18% in Sleeping Dogs
  • Up to 16% in Hitman Absolution

3D Vision

Unlike the majority of 3D movies, 3D games truly immerse you in the action, dramatically enhancing your experience with layered effects that bring games to life in a way no other technology can. To enjoy 3D Vision-enhanced games you'll need a compatible NVIDIA GPU, a 3D Vision monitor (we recommend models equipped with LightBoost, fast response panels), and a pair of 3D Vision 2 glasses (with an emitter if one isn't built in to your monitor). Simply plug and play, and press the predefined hotkey in-game to activate 3D.
