  1. Two of the season's most anticipated games - Dragon Age: Inquisition and Far Cry 4 - launched today and if you picked up either (or both), you'll likely want to snag the latest drivers for your AMD or Nvidia graphics...

    I saw no improvement in Far Cry 4 with the new driver, anyone else care to report?

    Me too, no noticeable improvement with my R9 290.
    BTW, We'd like to see a DA Inquisition performance review.

    DA performance review would be most welcome, specially on the cpu department, which I haven't seen so far. It is, definitely, the most cpu intensive game I've ever played and I'm under the impression that my 4.2GHz 2500k might be bottlenecking my gtx 980 in this particular game. So, I'd love to see how other cpus fare on this game.

    I'm trying to keep my nVidia driver updated. Looks as if I am going to stop for awhile. They are releasing WHQL drivers more rapidly than I care to install them now.

    Agreed. I feel as though every time I turn on my rig there is an updated Nvidia driver.

  9. I can confirm the amd driver improves frame rate. I added about 4fps after the driver update, based on the dragon age Inquisition benchmark. 4 fps is mainly unnoticeable for me though.
     
  10. That's what I call "optimized". I have a 295x2 and before the update I could barely reach 30 fps in Ultra, but now, it runs at about 80fps... Strange though, I had he latest "stable" driver for AMD, it shouldn't have made such a difference...
     
  11. I also have not seen any performance difference on my 290
