NVIDIA Editor's Day 2017 - During NVIDIA's Editor's Day at GDC 2017, the company didn't just unveil their new super-beast graphics card in the form of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti - but also the price drops on the GTX 1080 (with the faster 11Gbps GDDR5X memory) and the faster GTX 1060 (with 9Gbps GDDR5).




On top of that, the company also revealed its DX12 performance improvements over the last few months - all through driver updates. NVIDIA provided some performance numbers of their games running on a GeForce GTX 1080 at 4K, with games like The Division, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Gears of War 4, and more.


The biggest gains come from Rise of the Tomb Raider and Hitman - with performance improvements of 33% and 23%, respectively. NVIDIA compared the performance of the game on release, against the latest drivers, with some impressive performance increases. Things will only continue to improve in DX12 for GeForce gamers into the future.
