Under the release notes only the GTX 580 is mentioned and a lot of the performance improvements seem to be focused around AA / AF and when the cards are running in SLI.
Of course, it does mention improvements on other models including the GTX 400 series, so with a slightly cut down version of our normal benchmark line-up, we'll see how the GTX 580, GTX 570 and GTX 460 compare with one of the older drivers that we've been using for a while.
Let's get started!
3DMark 11 is the latest version of the world's most popular benchmark. Designed to measure your PC's gaming performance 3DMark 11 makes extensive use of all the new features in DirectX 11 including tessellation, compute shaders and multi-threading.

GTX 580 - Here we see no real change.
GTX 570 - Here we see no real change.
GTX 460 - The Performance Preset seemed to have dropped back ever so slightly.
