That’s incredible to say the least. Mere drivers to bring more than 60 percent of boost in a game like Total War: Rome II which can be quite suffocating for your rig when played at all high settings is truly remarkable.
Additionally these are only ‘some’ of the titles that will gain an advantage from the latest drivers. You can go ahead and update your card now and see for yourself if the claims are true.
