Nvidia chasing (beating?) AMD's Mantle benchmarks

Postby Extreme_One » Mon Apr 07, 2014 4:18 pm

NVidia have released a new Beta driver that they claim will improve performance in a similar way to AMD's Mantle.

The new release, named 337.50, is available today, and has been designed to make the existing DirectX 11 API much more efficient for Nvidia graphics cards. They are doing this by reducing the CPU overhead that the driver and API generate, which in turn means you get all the performance your graphics card can muster without being hobbled by DirectX distracting your CPU.

Interesting!

Looking forward to the stable release.

Lots of CS:GO players have noticed a big FPS boost (20-30+) with this driver - going to test it out myself on a few source games and see how it goes :) even 5-10 more fps from my laptop's GPU would be great too!
