Nvidia GeForce 337.50 BETA Released On Monday

Published by


Nvidia will release a new GeForce driver tomorrow, Monday Apr 07th. Now this will be a DirectX optimized driver, well CPU overhead lowering driver so to say. So make no mistake and do not confuse it with the DX12 release versus low-level API access. Nvidia listed a bunch of games in the driver release, all CPU limited titles. The driver should help out SLI users though,w here CPU limitation is a more common thing. 

In Multi GPU mode the performance increases as such should be more substantial. Here's an overview of what you may expect tomorrow with the driver release:
