An essential upgrade for all GeForce users, these drivers enable NVIDIA FXAA, NVIDIA Adaptive VSync, and NVIDIA Frame Rate Target on all GeForce 8-series and later GPUs


Good to see older GPUs are supported as well.

Yeah loving the the FXAA option, really benefits those with older cards that can't afford to use MSAA.

Great write up on the drivers as well.

Are these beneficial for the new 680's or just bringing the last Gen upto speed?

Almost all of this stuff was in the 301.01 680 driver, but now it's available to everyone.
Any chance you can comment on Batman Arkham City FPS its still poor on my GTX580 with DX11+ PhysX enabled will these ever get fixed as we know Nvidia had a team of developers onsite @ Rocksteady in Feb ;)
