Nvidia's Geforce 387.92 driver offers a 15-25% performance boost in Forza Motorsport 7

It looks like Nvidia's last driver wasn't really Game Ready for Forza 7

Nvidia release their 385.69 WHQL driver

Nvidia's Geforce 387.92 driver offers a 15-25% performance boost in Forza Motorsport 7

 

Nvidia has released their new Geforce 387.92 drivers, which are said to deliver performance gains of between 15-25% on Forza Motorsport 7, which is a huge improvement over the company's original "Game Ready" drivers. 

 


Our driver team spends a considerable amount of time developing optimizations and improvements for the latest games before they're launched, ensuring you have a great experience the second they're available. The work doesn't end at launch, however, as our team continually searches for further improvements in game code and our drivers, collaborating with developers whenever possible.

The fruits of this labor can be seen today in our new Game Ready driver, which introduces performance improvements of between 15-25%, depending on your system configuration, in the recently-released Forza Motorsport 7.


Aside from these improvements to Forza Motorsport 7, Nvidia's new 387.92 drivers are "Game Ready" for Middle Earth: Shadow of War, Arktika.2 VR and The Evil Within 2.

Would this put them ahead of AMD in Forza or they still behind?Quote

Hard to know. I am back home this week, so this might be worth a late testing/performance review.Quote

1080P
V64 - 136FPS
1080 Ti - 111FPS

1440P
V64 - 115FPS
1080 Ti - 102FPS

From that I'd say on par and call me a tin foil hatter but I bet if AMD didn't have specific hardware in Vega that handles DX12 feature sets well, 1 of them being prefetching, I think it's called that, Then I have a gut feeling Nvidia wouldn't have released a 15-25% performance upgrade driver, Tin foil hat I know Quote

You may be right. But people sure are quick to defend companies who don't care about themQuote

This driver seems to have a slight bug (for me) where my GPU doesn't return to 2d/idle clocks if I start doing something on my 144hz monitor. Its like that fantastic issue they took three months to fix back when I had my 780ti and this very 144hz 1440p monitor.

Its like the GPU switches to 3d clocks if I open a tab/do something that would require hardware rendering on chrome.Quote
