    Odd. If performance improvements for new games didn't exist why would there be any need for driver revisions?

    You should expect reasonable performance increases with a new game, but those should tail off rapidly (depending how on the ball the driver team is) with subsequent releases after the initial optimization has been written.

    In other Nvidia (non-driver) news, the company just exceeded AMD's revenue ($1.251bn vs $1.24bn for AMD) for the previous quarter. Can't remember that ever happening before.

    You don't get continuous performance improvements throughout the titles' life, but more can be done in the following weeks and months in a lot of cases after getting more familiar with the the dev team, game engine and the GPU architecture itself. nVIDIA drivers prove it on an almost regular basis.

    And don't forget about the popularity of the game as benchmarking tool among reviewers...

    Yea I've seen all the games in this driver used in a review.
  9. Too bad my GTX 480 (secondary card) will not see any improvement. It still has some spring it its step, and runs cooler and quieter than my 7950.
