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