The Shield tablet is out today, and so is a set of WHQL-certified GeForce drivers ready to take advantage of the device's GameStream capability. Thanks to Nvidia's new 340.52 WHQL drivers, folks with GeForce GTX graphics cards will be able to stream their PC games straight to the newly released slate.
The 340.52 WHQL drivers have a few other tricks up its sleeve, too. Nvidia says they provide the "best possible gaming experience" in Metro: Redux and the Chinese version of Final Fantasy XIV. The drivers also add 3D Vision profiles for Banished, BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea, and Krater, and they include the following SLI profile changes:
A full list of release notes for the new drivers can be found here in PDF format. The drivers themselves can be found here—or straight through Nvidia's GeForce Experience software, if you have that installed.
