It seams like these drivers have the best results in directX 11. Can someone from ED comment did they improve FPS in EDGE regardless of engine progress ?

For the last year or so I've run performance benchmarks using fraps within DCS every time Nvidia has released a new driver. It has never shown any remarkable difference when I've installed new drivers, this time was no exception. Im using a track file to record the fps so the margin of error is very small, like +- 0.25 fps

 

Edit:

 

335.23 WHQL driver average result on 3 tests: 65.2 fps

337.50 Beta driver average result on 3 tests: 64.4 fps

removing shader control from the CPU alone is worth it. :thumbup:

Glad to see improvement haven't tested my setup yet. It does not happen everyday when a company releases a software/driver that improves performance even on older hardware kudos for nvidia. Still would like to hear what edge testers have to say

A slick beta this driver! Runs stable and smooth for me. I don't know if the absolute maximum f/s is higher now though because I've got my FPS capped at 33, but I'm gonna test that later as well...

OK, had my FPS fluctuating between 45-166 in a fairly busy mission, but the sim really isn't usable for me with these settings - getting far too much screen tearing and irregular stuttering and I just can't have that. So back to the lowish f/s cap I go...

Why are you using SoftTH? Use Nvidia Surround, your video card supports more than 3 monitors.

 

Cause I run monitors in PLP configuration. NVSurround cant do that.
