After last month’s release of their 326.80 beta drivers, NVIDIA’s R325 driver branch has finally reached WHQL certification with today's release of driver version 327.23.

For those of you on a beta upgrade cadence, these drivers should be virtually identical to the last beta, going by NVIDIA’s release notes. Otherwise for those of you on a WHQL upgrade cadence, then these are the first drivers with all of the R325 branch enhancements. This includes the usual mix of performance enhancements – up to 19% in several games versus R319 – new SLI profiles, official Windows 8.1 support, TXAA support for OpenGL, and full support for tiled 4K 60Hz displays (e.g. ASUS’s PQ321Q).

As usual, you can grab the drivers for all current desktop and mobile NVIDIA GPUs over at NVIDIA’s driver download page. And thanks to reader SH SOTN for the heads up. Those of you with AMD drivers may also be interested in the Catalyst 13.9 WHQL drivers.

    It's odd AnandTech more often seems to break news on NV driver releases than AMD. In fact, AMD's new WHQL approved Catalyst 13.9 drivers are also out today.

    Thanks for the tip, hopefully they fix the issues with Guildwars 2 performance that their last microstutter fix beta drivers had.

    Well the truth is that over time Nvidia releases many more VHQL drivers than AMD.

    And the latest AMD VHQL removes Frame Pacing so how is that even a good release?

    Catalyst 13.9 drivers add WHQL certification, drop frame pacing

    Did you read the part where Ryan says "Thanks to reader SH SOTN for the heads up"? I doubt Ryan is scouring the internet for exclusive Nvidia specific driver news. In fact, Anandtech as an AMD portal which has news on all things AMD, including driver releases.

    Right, so where is the NV portal?

    My apologies, I realized the submit news option would have been the appropriate way to convey the feedback!

    hopefully they bring stability improvements to my GTX560, i have had nothing but grief this month trying to understand why windows was hanging all the time, and why i couldn't access one of my screens after. Only after trying all sorts of tests, and installing an old video driver started working again.

    same here 460 GTX.. win7 64 bit.
    314.22 works good for me.. no driver after that worked good.

    I have had similar problems recently with a 560 Ti.
