Nvidia Rolls Out GeForce Drivers to Amp Up Skyrim, Diablo III, Mass Effect 3
The new GeForce drivers are here!
Nvidia has posted new WHQL drivers for its GeForce line of video cards, spiffing up the performance for a number of games. Specifically mentioned are the performance improvements possible for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, the Diablo III beta and the Mass Effect 3 beta.
For Skyrim, Nvidia says its beta drivers released back in December have helped to boost frame rates in interior locations such as dungeons by 19 percent, and by about 2.8 percent in exterior locations. The new drivers should improve upon those figures even more. And the new drivers provide what Nvidia calls “Ambient Occlusion shadowing,” which translates to “more shadows that look pretty.”
Diablo III users also get Ambient Occlusion shadowing, Nvidia says, and players running the Mass Effect 3 demo can expect about double the performance out of their graphics cards with the new drivers.
