NVIDIA released today a new GeForce R310 driver optimized for the latest big holiday title, Far Cry 3.
Featuring the same performance boosts as the 310.54 and 310.61 beta
drivers, today's release gets your system ready for Far Cry 3, which
launches in Europe tomorrow, and next Tuesday in North America.
In addition to maximizing compatibility in the first-person shooter, the 310.64 beta drivers improve performance by up to 37.6% in specific configurations Nvidia has tested.
Furthermore, the previously-released SLI profile is also included,

Using the most popular gaming resolution, 1920x1080, Nvidia maxed out Far
Cry 3's many graphics options, selected SSAO Ambient Occlusion, set the game's

to eliminate those pesky jaggies. Nvidia claims that the new 310.64
beta driver boosted performance significantly, helping the GTX 670 and
GTX 680 achieve playable frame rates at this demanding detail level.
With regards to the issues gamers have experienced in games such as
Battlefield 3 and Assassin's Creed III, Nvidia says it is working to fix
them and get most resolved for its upcoming WHQL driver.
Otherwise identical to last week's 310.54 beta drivers, 310.61 beta improves compatibility in Hitman: Absolution and Planetside 2, and supports a new Black Ops II SLI profile that's available through NVIDIA update.
