GeForce Driver 337.78

Dream
Level 7
Updated this morning to 337.78. I was two/three updates behind.

The local geforce program had trouble downloading the driver directly from Nvidia but I was able to download directly off the site without issue.

Made a system restore point, did a clean install, zero problems thus far. I'll post if I encounter any. Nvidia is claiming ~10% or more improvement for a wide variety of games. Looking forward to seeing if those claims pan out :cool:

This new driver was mainly released to improve GPU performance in Watch Dogs and trust me it really does, before updating my GPU drivers I was playing Watch Dogs at around 30-40 fps with mid graphics on my G750JW with the update I easily get 50-60 fps on mid graphics and high with 30-40. So it is worth updating if you are planning to play Watch Dogs.

Does this cause the 5min boot slowdown on 3D version laptops?
I have G750JX CV069P Win8

just tried to install from nvidia website and it said that the driver wasn't compatible with 8.1. At a loss.

It helps to give us the details, which version of Nvidia driver? What laptop do you have?

If you downloaded the correct Windows 8.1 x64 version, you won't get a Windows 8.1 compatibility problem 🙂

don't download this driver...beware!!! it made my gpu reach to 90c..and some peoples cpu reached to 105c with it...no matter what i did i couldnt go back to my old temps i had to fresh install a windows..and now my max temp is 72c after 2 hours of gaming in bf4..before in less than 2 minutes it would reach to 82c and then climb up...i have the gtx 870m 6gb...maybe it only does that for 8 series but a lot of people complaining about how laggy and stuttery this driver makes their system..watch dogs ran like crap..i would recommend to stay away from it and use the beta driver.
