Nvidia has released a new set of GeForce beta drivers, version 340.43. If you were expecting major changes in this update, I'm sorry to let you down: Nvidia just added a few new SLI and 3D Vision profiles for users of those technologies. The company also recommends that you install these drivers if you're planning on playing Battlefield: Hardline, GRID Autosport, or Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare in the near future.
Here's a list of the new SLI profiles in these drivers:
- 3DMark SkyDiver Subtest – added profile
- Battlefield: Hardline – added profile
- Dark Souls II – updated SLI profile, added NVCPL HBAO+ profile
- Elder Scrolls Online – added profile
- LuDaShi Benchmark - added profile
- WildStar – updated profile to support 32-bit .exe
If you're using 3D Vision, you can now experience Banished, BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea, and Krater with the goggle tech, as well.
GeForce owners who have the GeForce Experience software installed with the beta update channel enabled should receive these drivers automatically. You can also download the release manually at Nvidia's drivers page.
