NVIDIA R337.50 Beta Graphics Drivers With DX Optimizations and New OpenGL Extensions



NVIDIA R337.50 graphics driver



A new set of gaming graphics drivers for all available GeForce graphics cards is available. R337.50 introduces key Direct3D optimizations (humm, something related to D3D12 ?) which result in reduced game-loading and significant performance increases across a wide variety of video games (Total War: Rome II, Sleeping Dogs, Batman: Arkham Origins, …).

R337.50 is an OpenGL 4.4 driver and exposes 322 OpenGL extensions (GL=295 and WGL=27) for a GTX 780 / GTX 680 under Win8 64-bit. Compared to R335.23, two new extensions
have been added:

  • GL_NV_ES3_1_compatibility
  • GL_KHR_blend_equation_advanced



The complete list of all 322 OpenGL extensions is available HERE.

    Will this driver reduce CPU bottlenecked for 3DMark 06 (we remember CPU too bottlenecked) running Win XP x86?

  2. John Smith

    is someone at NVidia still remembers what is 3DMark06 and WinXP

  3. Stefan

    Again Maxwell exposes more extensions than Kepler

    GL_EXT_shader_image_load_formatted
    GL_KHR_blend_equation_advanced_coherent
    GL_NV_blend_equation_advanced_coherent

    no, only optimisations on DX11 rendering path…

    noway it will work under directx 9.0C
