Tech Connect Magazine tries out 3 of nVIDIA’s newest drivers to see just how well they are improving. Driver revisions don’t tend to have huge impacts on performance overall, though the bug fixes can certainly help. Once the testing was done, it turns out that the WHQL certified 180.48 is your best choice … at least until the 181 series appears.
