It's that time again, when new video games require new video drivers. NVIDIA is on top of things for anyone picking up Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and/or Need for Speed Rivals, not to mention any other games recently released, with the new GeForce 331.82 WHQL driver. This new driver is the Game Ready one for ACIV and NFSR, as well as boosts up to 19% in other games compared to the 327.23 WHQL drivers. There's also some huge improvements for anyone gaming at 4K, as there's as much as a 50% framerate boost in the likes of Battlefield 4, Crysis 3, and Metro: Last Light. GeForce Experience gets bumped up to 1.7.1 with the 331.82 drivers, which removes the CPU restrictions on ShadowPlay. So now anyone with a GTX 600/700 Series GPU can record their gameplay with a minimal performance impact (if any).
If you're already running GeForce Experience, feel free to start the download when prompted. Otherwise, you can grab the GeForce 331.82 WHQL drivers from GeForce.com, as well as check out the full release notes.
