Fired up FC3 just to see how the drivers affected performance. (From .70) Annnnnnnd....now the textures on the arm holding the firearms are flashing. Goodie.


Edit: Reset graphics settings and restarted, set to ultra again. Now it works. FPS much higher on .90 than .70.

Edit 2: Nope, if I fast travel the flashing textures come back, and on more than just my arm.

These drivers don't do anything the last driver didn't, for people other than GTX690 owners.

I thought the same thing, as that is how they were advertising it in the driver notes (marketing scheme to make you want to upgrade to the 6-series); however, I have GTX580s in SLI and as soon as I installed this latest set of drivers and fired up FC3, I noticed a significant difference in performance.


Really? Did you update from 310.70 or something lower?

Yes, I upgraded 310.70 to 310.90. I figured I would give it a try anyway, and I'm glad I did. FC3 just seemed much smoother to me with consistently higher frame rates while running FRAPs. The driver notes stated there was updated SLI profiles as well.

Also not sure why they were so reliant on the escape button either. Crafting, skills, encyclopedia, maps, everything is on the escape button menu. Far Cry 2 had really cool implementations for that stuff, this seems like a reversion.

Yeah, that implementation left me scracthing my head; it seems to take you out of the game too much. There should be a bind to <J> for Journal like in DISHONORED or something.

A bit off topic but since people were talking about Far Cry 3... I feel like they got the character development wrong in Far Cry 3. As soon as you finish the intro you can turn yourself into a crazy badass in an hour or two. I thought they were going to go for the whole guy doesn't know how to use guns dynamic which would have been really neat but abandoned it quickly.

The AI is god damn terrible too. I love the base gameplay but I'm like 3 hours in and a total murder machine, nothing stands a chance and I just walk over everyone. The game is just way too forgiving in general, I can't imagine how absurd it will be when I've fully unlocked the skill trees.

Play is very annoying though!

Put it in permanently in offline mode and the only annoyance you will have is it an extra dialog when you click play from the Uplay screen.

Try doing that for Heroes VI though: still annoying

PS: At some point FC3 gets a really Just Cause kinda unrealism about it. Enjoyed the living hell out of it! Ppl who are there or finished the game should know what I'm talking about xD

Well I got a noticeable (and nice) performance boost in Far Cry 3 DX11 with them.

And while I don't think I'm that far into the game, the story got realllly dark talking to the girl fixing the boat.

Killing is like winning

Now I'm more interested in the story.

Grin.....that is where I just left off in the game as well. The more I play this game, the more I like it and get into it. UPlay is very annoying though!

I definitely noticed a significant performance boost in FC3 with these updated drivers.

Woohoo! Performance improvements for GTX 690. Downloading the driver now. Can't wait to see how they perform with my two 690s in Quad SLI.

They're dated yesterday.

Your link is .70. These are .90.



Not if you look to the left where it says Latest GPU Driver

Exactly. And when you click on the little i there, it takes you to a page that says:

Version 310.90 - WHQL
Release Date Sat Jan 05, 2013

One of those digits is not the same there, know-it-all.


Well damn, Blue's link goes to a page that makes it look like the 310.70 is the newest. Idiot.
