Nvidia's new GeForce GTX 970 and 980 graphics cards have just come out, and you know what that means. New drivers!
Today's GeForce 344.11 WHQL driver update is now available on GeForce.com. Along with support for the new cards, Nvidia says this release enables the "ultimate gaming experience" in a handful of new and upcoming games, including Alien: Isolation, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, F1 2014, and The Evil Within. I assume that means those games won't crash or set your computer on fire or anything.
The 344.11 drivers also introduce support for G-Sync and what Nvidia calls G-Sync Surround, which seems to be marketing talk for multi-monitor G-Sync setups. We recently reviewed one of the first G-Sync monitors, Asus' ROG Swift PG278Q, and came away quite impressed. The ROG Swift PG278Q is currently listed at Newegg for $799.99, but it's out of stock. Folks hoping to set up multiple ones in a Surround setup will need deep pockets—and a little bit of patience, too.
Finally, the new drivers include some bug fixes, which are listed in Nvidia's release notes here. Happy downloading.
