NVIDIA's beta R313 driver with performance enhancements for Crysis 3 (among other titles) has now received WHQL certification. We wouldn't expect much of a difference in performance relative to the beta drivers, but NVIDIA states they provide up to a 5% performance improvement in Crysis 3 with GTX 680. As usual, you can grab the drivers for all current desktop and mobile NVIDIA GPUs:

Desktop 314.07 Windows Vista/7/8 64-bit
Desktop 314.07 Windows Vista/7/8 32-bit
Mobile 314.07 Windows Vista/7/8 64-bit
Mobile 314.07 Windows Vista/7/8 32-bit

Thanks go as usual to reader SH SOTN for the quick notification.

    Already corrected.

    I'd just like to have reliable HDMI audio, without having to disable and re-enable hdmi audio in the Nvidia driver every single time I switch my receiver back to PC from another source. Let's get the basics right before tweaking performance.

    Interesting, which card and OS are you using? I've never had this happen and all I use for audio is HDMI, PC HDMI -> TV -> Optical out to surround sound.

    Yep I have the exact same issue. In addition, nvidia has never fixed the "silent stream bug". Hdmi audio is the one place amd definitely beats nvidia in (at least wrt drivers).

    Do these drivers have any references to GK110 based parts?

    Up to 5% or 105% performance?

    I'd consider 5% a pretty huge regression.

    Fixed, Mr. Snark. :p

    These versions all require additional 12mV (default 1.0V) to OC gtx460 to 850-1700-4000 and hence lead to 3~5C increase in temperature.
