GeForce 304.79 beta brings TXAA, SLI profiles and bug fixes

By on

You've probably barely broken in June's 304.48 beta drivers, but Nvidia has already prepared another update that brings "essential" changes for The Secret World players as well as other improvements and fixes. Perhaps the most notable change in 304.79 beta is the inclusion of TXAA, which was first announced alongside the GTX 680 in March and is said to smooth more aliased edges than MSAA while also significantly reducing temporal aliasing.

The first title to support TXAA is the aforementioned Funcom MMORPG, The Secret World, which launched today in North America and Europe, conveniently enough. Nvidia promised to publish an in-depth look at TXAA in the game in the near future, but in the meantime, the company offers a launch-day interview with Funcom's CTO and lead designer. It's worth noting that the release notes say TXAA is only supported by GTX 600 series graphics cards.

GeForce 304.79 beta drivers also carry new or updated SLI profiles for The Secret World, End of Nations, Nexuiz, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, Tornado Force and Tribes: Ascend. Bug fixes include some that caused compatibility issues with GTX 400 and 500 cards in Civilization V, flickering or missing mouse cursor with hardware cursor enabled, PCs to reboot instead of shutting down, and a black screen after driver installation.
