Heads up on new Nvidia drivers

Recommended Posts

I just got the fresh down from Nvidia, 197.13 beta. They seem to give me about 10% boost in FSX. I created 2 test situations with the same view and settings prior to driver change. So, same setting, same position and aircraft, about 10% FPS up on unlimited.I hope they perform well too.

Have you run any tests for fs9? (not sure if you use that anymore)

No tests ran on FS9, but as my FS9 is maintaining 40fps no matter where and what I fly, there is no point of testing for me there any more. But I have an old situation file, which I tested last time here on the forums, and it gave me around 90fps, now this same situation shows 97fps.Hope that helps.

EDIT: Nevermind, I found the driver.

I don't see much of a difference. Took off from 32L in the PMDG 747 with FSDT KORD and UT2 max commercial traffic 1% GA traffic. On the takeoff roll with lots of the airport in view, about 21 FPS. Once airborne going to spot view and putting the whole airport in the window, about 18. Ballpark same as before.

Maybe correct post would've been if I added YMMV.

Thanks for the heads up :( I've updated my drivers regulary and haven't experienced any difference in performance for a very long time. But with these drivers I got a 20-25% increase of my average fps compared to the previous 195.62 drivers. I benchmarked two flights, one over a dense urban area and one flight over a rural area. :(

Gave them a try (coming from 196.21) with my three testflights: zero difference. Not worth the trouble. Apparently the 195.62 driver was very bad... :( For those who reported an improvement: such posts are rather useless if you don't tell us what your previous driver was. And make sure you use the same settings... :(

As I said in my post: I haven't experienced any significant performance difference with any driver version since 181.22 up to the 195.62 on my system.Could you please post some info about your system? IMO as important as telling what driver version that you came from and using the same settings when benchmarking drivers. :(

Previously using 196.21 but I did not notice a real performance increase. On the other side, these drivers (197.13) finally got rid of the occasional texure flashing I had before so :(.

I was disappointed in them and went back to the 186.18 release which for me has better IQ.
