    And that "up to" clause really makes those numbers meaningless. I remember a particularly egregious case where "up to 50%" was claimed in a game, but only when gaming at 4K resolution with 3x Titan or something like that. :rolleyes:

    I'm at work. Someone test this with a 680m and tell me if it does anything please... :)

    Eh, I'm not expecting much to be fair but this could potential be very cool if the improvements work across board (and I don't see why they wouldn't seeing as the 7** series is basically a rebranded 6** series).

    660m, Metro LL benchmark. +2% gain. It's like Xfiles: Performance boost... Out somewhere.
    However I felt it was more "fluid" and no stuttering though.

    Hope games will have better result.

    I think they just hyped this driver because of mantle, most of the performance improvements are like 2-5%, not even upto 10% let alone upto 71%

    In other news your cable company has been promising you download speeds up to x mbps for years.. I'm sure there will be situations where this driver shines but for those of us with relatively beefy CPUs it might take a while to run into one of those situations.

    Probably something along these lines for the "up to 71%" claims. :rolleyes:

    Well, maybe it is placebo but I think I might got few fps to Metro LL. I recall it was 18-sh - 19-sh last time I eperimented with settings (aka SSAA 2X FHD and Advanced PhysX on my not prepared for this GPU) while now I got 20-22 underground.
    This is in compare to 331.86 + Win7.
