After last month’s release of their 331.40 beta drivers, NVIDIA’s R331 driver branch has finally reached WHQL certification with today's release of driver version 331.58.

For those of you on a beta upgrade cadence, these drivers should be similar 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 R331 branch enhancements. This includes the usual mix of performance enhancements – up to 10% in several games versus R325 – new SLI profiles, driver-based HBAO+ support, official Ivy Bridge-E support, and OpenGL 4.4 support. Furthermore NVIDIA is labeling these as a “game ready” release for Battlefield 4 and Batman: Arkham Origins (both coming out at the end of this month), so these will be the preferred drivers for those games.

As usual, you can grab the drivers for all current desktop and mobile NVIDIA GPUs over at NVIDIA’s driver download page.

    Does this driver tank Folding@Home numbers? The beta of this driver caused my PPD to drop from 110k to 30k, so I have some concern in this area.

    Don't worry, science, nor companies will pay you a dime for wasting your electricity and being NON GREEN anyway. You're wasting your time. Play a game instead, let the pill companies come up with their own stuff on THEIR dime. You get nothing from what you're doing except a higher electric bill. :) This driver just fixes BF4 and Batman perf.

    You are one of the 290,000 people who are wasting electricity on this crap. I'm sure NV doesn't care. Why do you?
    Let them run up their own bills. Donate money to something if you need to feel good. Causing rolling blackouts isn't more of what we need, which is exactly what would happen if another 10mil join you running pc's at 100% all day :)

    Does anyone know if this R331 driver fixes the freezing and BSOD issues with Fermi (400/500 series) cards?
    I've been having that issue on my GTX 460 and 560 Ti with every WHQL driver above 314.22.
