With the release of the GTX 780 just a few days ago also came the release of some new drivers from Nvidia. The newly available 320.18 WHQL drivers are recommended for anyone with a GTX 780, but they also bring some hefty performance boosts on “older” cards like the GTX 660. There is an extra 20% of performance on offer in Tomb Raider and Dirt Showdown compared to the 314.22 WHQL drivers. Metro Last Light, Assassin’s Creed 3, Far Cry 3 and Bioshock Infinite also get performance boosts of 10%, 8%, 6% and 5% respectively.

Here you can see a demonstration of the performance boost on a GTX 660.
