Aside from possible software problems such as instability or strange behaviour that you may get, the new 304.48 drivers offer as much as 60 per cent frame rate gain in games such as Total War: Shogun 2 for GeForce GTX 680 owners.

Clearly optimised for the Kepler architecture the 304.48 drivers also offer up to 18 percent better performance in Batman: Arkham City, up to 15 percent in Dragon Age II, and up to 10 percent in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat.
