If you're planning to pick up the new Splinter Cell game and own an NVIDIA GeForce graphics card, you'll be happy to know a new driver is available to get you the best experience possible. GeForce 326.80 Game Ready driver is a beta driver, but it's the perfect way to get the most out of Splinter Cell: Blacklist. It's also the recommended driver for anyone on Windows 8.1 Preview, so it's good to grab for that if you aren't picking up the game. NVIDIA says performance is boosted by 19% in various games compared to the WHQL 320.49 drivers when using a GeForce 400/500/600/700 series card. One card provided as an example, the GTX 770, shows a 15% increase in DiRT: Showdown and 6% in Tomb Raider, while two GTX 770s in SLI provide a 19% boost in DiRT: Showdown and 11% in F1 2012.
Additional features with the GeForce 326.80 drivers include SLI profiles for Splinter Cell: Blacklist and the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins (arrives October 25), support for streaming to the SHIELD (provided you have a GTX 650 or better), and even support for more 4K tiled displays. You can grab the GeForce 326.80 drivers from GeForce.com or through GeForce Experience if beta updates are selected.
