Coinciding with last week's release of the GeForce GTX 760, Nvidia dropped a set of 320.49 beta drivers which were welcomed by gamers with mixed feedback. Today, Nvidia has released a WHQL version of its 320.49 driver which hopefully sets right the issues (e.g. freezing, BSODs, image corruption) reported by some beta users.

As usual, 320.49 improves performance over its predecessor in a number of recent titles. Many of the performance gains made in games like Metro: Last Night, Assassin's Creed 3, Starcraft 2 and BioShock: Infinite are a subtle 5 to 10-percent. Meanwhile, Dirt and Tomb Raider receive a substantial bumps in performance (17-20-percent) under certain conditions and configurations.
The WHQL release also resolves a number of bugs, like artifacting issues found in Battlefield 3 (e.g. blue rectangles, image corruption), Eve Retribution and Assassin's Creed 3 (purple artifacts). Dual-monitors setups will no longer cause GPUs to run at higher performance levels than they should while GeForce GTX 680M-equipped notebooks will no longer go blank after enabling SLI or 3D mode.
More than a dozen new SLI profiles have also been added. Far Cry: Blood Dragon, GRID 2, The Walking Dead and Resident Evil 6 are just a few worthy mentions.
Included with 320.49 WHQL are PhysX 9.13.0604, HD Audio 188.8.131.52, support for CUDA 5.5 and earlier. Supported products include most GeForce, Quadro and ION GPUs made within the past several years.
