    Default NVIDIA Releases the GeForce 301.24 Beta Driver

    NVIDIA has today made available a new graphics drive, the beta-tagged GeForce 301.24 which includes support for the GeForce 6, 7, 8, 9, 100, 200, 300, 400 and 500 Series cards, as well as for the GeForce GTX 680.

    GeForce 301.24 beta highlights


    - New GPU Support - Adds support for the new GeForce GTX 680, the fastest, most efficient GPU ever built.

    - Performance Boost - Increases performance for GeForce 400 Series and 500 Series GPUs in several PC games vs. GeForce 296.10 WHQL-certified drivers. Results will vary depending on your GPU and system configuration:

    GeForce GTX 570/580:

    ● Up to 23% in Just Cause 2 with SLI
    ● Up to 21% in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
    ● Up to 17% in StarCraft II with SLI
    ● Up to 14% in Far Cry 2 with SLI
    ● Up to 9% in Bulletstorm
    ● Up to 7% in Civilization V
    ● Up to 6% in Deus Ex: Human Revolution with SLI
    ● Up to 6% in Dragon Age 2 with SLI
    ● Up to 5% in Metro 2033 with SLI
    ● Up to 5% in Total War: Shogun 2

    GeForce GTX 560/560 Ti:

    ● Up to 20% in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
    ● Up to 15% in Just Cause 2 with SLI
    ● Up to 13% in Far Cry 2 with SLI
    ● Up to 12% in Bulletstorm

    - NVIDIA FXAA Technology - shader-based anti-aliasing technology available from the NVIDIA Control Panel that enables ultra-fast anti-aliasing in hundreds of PC games. FXAA delivers similar quality to 4x multi-sample antialiasing (MSAA) but is up to 60% faster, enabling substantially higher performance in games. FXAA is supported on all GeForce 8-series and later GPUs. Note: This feature is disabled for games that already have built-in support for FXAA.

    - NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync - dynamically enables vertical sync based on your current frame rates for the smoothest gaming experience. Adaptive VSync is supported on all GeForce 8-series and later GPUs.

    - NVIDIA Frame Rate Target - dynamically adjusts frame rate to a user specified target. Support for this feature is enabled via third party applications via NVAPI.

    - NVIDIA Surround Technology - Adds the following new Surround capabilities.

    ● Add in a fourth accessory display to get access to your email, web, or other applications while you game.
    ● Maximize an application to a single physical display when in Surround mode (enabled by default).
    ● Confine the Windows Taskbar to the center display (enabled by default).
    ● Enable bezel peeking - a feature which enables users to temporarily 'peak' behind the monitor bezels using a hotkey (Ctrl + Alt + B). This feature is designed to be used in conjunction with bezel corrected resolutions.
    ● Add or remove resolutions from the list of Surround resolutions (only those selected will be available to applications).
    ● Full center display acceleration for single wide display modes (center display must be connected to the master GPU).

    - NVIDIA SLI Technology - Adds or updates the following SLI profiles:

    ● Alan Wake
    ● Call of Juarez: The Cartel
    ● Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
    ● Deus Ex: Human Revolution - The Missing Link
    ● Left 4 Dead
    ● Orcs Must Die!
    ● Portal 2
    ● Risen 2: Dark Waters
    ● The Darkness II

    - NVIDIA 3D Vision - Adds or updates the following 3D Vision profiles:

    ● All Zombies Must Die! - rated Fair
    ● Ghosts 'n Goblins Online - rated Good
    ● Oil Rush - rated 3D Vision Ready
    ● Postal III - rated Good
    ● Rayman Origins - rated Good
    ● SevenCore - rated Fair
    ● Stacking - rated Good
    ● Unigine Heaven Benchmark v3.0 - rated 3D Vision Ready
    ● Wargame: European Escalation - rated Good
    ● Warp - rated Good
    ● Wings of Prey - rated Fair
    ● Krater - rated Poor

    Other Details
    ● Installs PhysX System Software v9.12.0213.
    ● Installs HD Audio v1.3.12.0.
    ● Supports OpenGL 4.2
    ● Supports DisplayPort 1.2 for GeForce GTX 680.
    ● Supports multiple languages and APIs for GPU computing: CUDA C, CUDA C++, CUDA Fortran, OpenCL, DirectCompute, and Microsoft C++ AMP.
    ● Supports single GPU and NVIDIA SLI technology on DirectX 9, DirectX 10, DirectX 11, and OpenGL, including 3-way SLI, Quad SLI, and SLI support on SLI-certified Intel and AMD motherboards.

    Nothing about their " your display driver stopped working..........." msg...Suffering infrequently for last few days..Currently im with latest WHQL 296.10 .Should i dwld this BETA one...
    People should stop blaming games for allegedly *copying* each other: "oh this game is Skyrim copy", "this game is WoW knock off", "this game is just another DMC" - enough!

    On this rate every 3rd person action will be God of War, every 3rd p shooter Gears, every 1st will be CoD.. it's ridiculous. They are called genres people! And if you look carefully you'll see allot more than mimicry out there.

    That seems to be a common problem but 296.10 should've fixed it lol. You should try this, so far I haven't seen the same complain.

    actually not, 295.73 fixed that but with 296.10 it returned along with pink artifacts but using this beta since 2days still no problem, lets see, so @Reventon you should try this. One more thing i noticed is increased load temps during gaming, is that so in your case??
