Nvidia guarantees that this new release offers a great performance boost in some games, so even though Windows 8.1 Preview might not be too reliable for gaming, a slight improvement should still be noticed.
“[It] increases performance by up to 19% for GeForce 400/500/600/700 series GPUs in several PC games vs. GeForce 320.49 WHQL-certified drivers,” Nvidia said. Dirt: Showdown, Tomb Raider, F1 2012 and Batman: Arkham Origins are the games that should benefit from the new drivers.
This Game Ready driver offers the best gaming experience for Splinter Cell: Blacklist and is also a recommended driver update for the Windows 8.1 Preview. GeForce R326 drivers also provide performance increases for a variety of different games.
