    I heared it isn't enabled for Optimus systems.

    i5 2450M / GT630M (540M) 2GD3

    The performance gain is amazing using this driver, overclock + utilization is MUCH more stable in BF4

    "Wonder Driver" lives up to it's name :D

    Improvements seem to be very slight on my 770M, but hey, every bit is good.

    So... Is it worth upgrading the driver for 240M?
    :D:D:D

    Check out the quick test by Tom's. As I expected, less than 5% improvement except for Star Swarm, and as one of the comments pointed out this could be the driver itself messing with the rendering.

    So much hype about absolutely nothing lol

    Actually still running 331.65, because this is the only driver of the recent releases that doesn't completely break SLI in Red Faction Armageddon

    AMD had worse results lol
    Thief Gets AMD TrueAudio And Mantle Support - Tom's Hardware

    That Star Swarm got so big results that it makes me believe that this is just like Mantle. Biggest gains will be multi player, SLI, and CPU bound games where CPU overhead plays a bigger role

    EDIT: Yup, Anandtech got better results with SLI

    Huge gains in Titanfall. Didn't measure but I'm sticking much closer to 60FPS, except for when there's a lot of alpha heavy effects such as smoke.

    680m seems to be loving this new driver. I'm happy. Will check back with other games later.

    I knew I'd be CPU limited due to being on a laptop and so far the gains are impressive.
