NVIDIA have today released the version 270.51 BETA GeForce software suite. The suite is compatible with GeForce GPU 6-series and up and installs the recommended drivers for CUDA, PhysX, 3D Vision software, NVIDIA HDMI audio drivers and related software.


A new feature with 270.51 is the automated driver update feature. This feature keeps your PC up-to-date with the latest NVIDIA drivers by notifying you when a new driver is available and directing you to the driver on NVIDIA's website.

This driver includes an absolutely huge list of performance increases and some of the increases are very impressive. NVIDIA claim performance for Dragon Age 2 can be improved by a whopping 516-percent when used with GeForce GTX580's in SLI running 2560x1600 8xAA/16xAF Very High, SSAO on. Impressive.
