Grand Theft Auto V finally comes to the PC tomorrow. To help GeForce owners prepare, Nvidia has released new graphics drivers tuned specifically for the open-world opus. The 350.12 drivers include the requisite performance optimizations along with SLI and GeForce Experience profiles for GTA V. They also bear Microsoft's WHQL seal of approval—no beta branding here.
As the release notes (PDF) explain, the drivers bring more than just GTA V goodies. SLI profiles have been added or updated for Assassin's Creed: Rogue, Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty!, Project CARS, and Victor Vran. There are tweaks for 5K monitors and 250-DPI scaling in Windows 8.1, too, plus improvements for SLI setups running ShadowPlay or GameStream at 4K+ resolutions.
On the general-purpose computing front, the 350.12 drivers add support for OpenCL 1.2. The Khronos-backed standard is supported across a wide range of Kepler- and Maxwell-based products dating back to the GeForce 600 series.
