Official NVIDIA 320.18 WHQL Display Driver Feedback Thread (Released 5/23/13)
  1 / 107    
The new GeForce 320.18 WHQL display driver is now available for download. An essential update for gamers jumping into the latest releases, today’s Microsoft-certified driver increases performance by up to 20% in Tomb Raider, 20% in DiRT Showdown, 10% Metro: Last Light, 8% in Assassin’s Creed III, 6% in Far Cry 3, and 5% in BioShock Infinite. Furthermore, compatibility and stability improvements offered at or before the day of release of Dead Island: Riptide, Dungeons & Dragons: Neverwinter, Metro: Last Light, and Star Trek: The Videogame, are included in today’s WHQL, too, to ensure that gamers who did not download our recent betas have the best experience possible. In addition to all of the above, 320.18 WHQL also includes SLI profiles for Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, Dead Island: Riptide, Dungeons & Dragons: Neverwinter, Euro Truck Simulator 2, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, GRID 2, and Remember Me, as well as updated profiles for Natural Selection 2, Resident Evil 6, and TrackMania² Canyon. Last but not least, we are also announcing the launch of the NVIDIA Geforce Experience v1.5 which is now shedding its BETA moniker and is now officially bundled with Geforce 320.18 driver and available as a standalone download.

If your graphics card is factory overclocked or manually overclocked, we recommend that you lower the clock speeds of your graphics card to NVIDIA reference clock speeds and then make another attempt to reproduce the issue you are encountering. For graphics cards which are factory overclocked, you may use a 3rd party utility such as eVGA Precision or MSI Afterburner to adjust the clock speeds of your graphics card.

Is there anything new for Metro Last Light or the Titan Power reporting issues or is this just 320.14 as WHQL version? Also please look into Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, benchmark performance went downhill with 320.xx vs. the older 314.22. The new Benchmark can be found here: http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/benchmark/index.html
