Benchmarking NVIDIA drivers. Find out if it’s worth updating your current driver version.
Every time NVIDIA releases a new Game Ready driver version there is a question that comes to our mind: should I update NVIDIA GPU drivers? The question is simple, but the answer isn’t.
The general rule suggests us to always update our drivers to the latest version as that ensures us to get latest bug fixes, security updates, optimizations for most of the latest AAA games, and in terms of support for new features. However, all this doesn’t ensure the best performance in terms of raw performance (Avg FPS numbers) and frame times stability (1% and 0.1% Low avg FPS or P1 and P0.2 FPS numbers). It is precisely at this point where comparative performance analysis of GPU drivers are key, since they allow us to validly and reliably estimate significant improvements or regressions in graphics performance attributable to driver version changes.
That’s why Gaming Experiencer offers you a data-based answer to that recurrent question by publishing comprehensive benchmarks of the graphical performance of latest NVIDIA GeForce drivers across a variety of gaming scenarios, including those of the main graphics engines.
