Nvidia has rolled out an updated beta graphics driver for those with an Nvidia graphics card running on either Microsoft's Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 Preview operating system. This driver is also a "recommended driver update" for those on Windows 8.1 Preview.
"This Game Ready driver offers the best gaming experience for Splinter Cell: Blacklist and is also a recommended driver update for the Windows 8.1 Preview. GeForce R326 drivers also provide performance increases for a variety of different games," Nvidia stated on the driver download page.
This beta driver increases performance up to 19% for those who own a GeForce 400, 500 ,600, or 700 series GPU, compared to the previously released 320.49 WHQL driver release. For example, in GTX 770, there is a 15% improvement when playing Dirt Showdown and a 6% improvement when playing Tomb Raider.
