Nvidia rolls out its 270.51 Beta drivers

Written by Slobodan Simic

Big performance improvements
Nvidia has just rolled out its latest Geforce 270.51 Beta drivers that bring decent improvements for the GTX 560 Ti and the GTX 580 card. In addition to the performance boost for those cards, Nvidia has implemented its "Nvidia update" feature as well as some updates for Nvidia 3D Vision, Nvidia Surround and Nvidia CUDA.

The new Geforce 270.51 driver features support for all GPUs since Geforce 6 series including ION GPUs, but the main performance improvements are for the GTX 580 and the GTX 560 Ti including up to 326 and 516 percent boost for Dragon Age 2 on single and SLI GTX 580 systems and various other games. Another interesting feature is the new Nvidia update that keeps your PC up-to-date with the latest Nvidia drivers simply by notifying you whenever the new ones are available.

Some updates, including feature and performance, are made to the 3D Vision as well as Nvidia's Surround. The last but not least is added support for applications using CUDA 4.0 features such as Unified Virtual Addressing (UVA) and GPUDirect v2.0.

The driver can be found over at Nvidia's website where you can find the full release highlights as well.

You can't polish a turd, Nshittia. Give up now. Even Warrior won't swallow that shit forever.

What about the gtx 570, 480, 470, and 460s?

Right.. The turd which happens to have had the best drivers for ages now, and as held the performance crown consistently. Not to mention is making great strides in general computing on the GPU for the better of us all. ATI merely holds the price crown, because they have to, since they are second best.

Performance crown? Only shit-eating idiots want highest performance at all costs (both $ and Watts). Who on earth would anyone want these power-hogging shitheaps in a GPU cluster? Do you have any idea why Fermi was thrown out of Oak Ridge?

Do some research, moron.

All this bs about NV having the better drivers xd

and what performance crown are you talking about ? They had it with 480/580 for single chip cards but for crazy prices and TDP, thats not worth it. Even biggest NV fanboys should agree that last 2 years were AMD time.

??? im not asking if they suck im asking if their drivers improve on these gpus as well? because it says gtx 580 and 560.
the reason being is many own these chips and play DA2 and want to know.

Well, the drivers are for this cards too, so very likely they should, if NV didnt mess up the so much better drivers ofc ^^

true but these are the 2nd set of beta drivers since January, and no Crysis 2 shogun2 improvement as well ( in shogun 2 Nvidia's gpu does poorly as well as DA2 but the later was improved)

they come out with more gpus then official drivers these days lol.
eg. since January Nvidia launched the gtx 590, 560 ti and 550ti, but no official new drivers.

I heard about Shogun 2 and DA2 but even Crysis 2 ? A friend with 460 can play it pretty well or its a problem with newer ones only ?

APB seems to have problems with NV cards too now (before it had with AMD ones, lol)
