    • NVIDIA FXAA Technology – shader-based anti-aliasing technology available from the NVIDIA Control Panel that enables ultra-fast anti-aliasing in hundreds of PC games. FXAA delivers similar quality to 4x multi-sample antialiasing (MSAA) but is up to 60% faster, enabling substantially higher performance in games. FXAA is supported on all GeForce 8-series and later GPUs. Note: This feature is disabled for games that already have built-in support for FXAA.
    • NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync – dynamically enables vertical sync based on your current frame rates for the smoothest gaming experience. Adaptive VSync is supported on all GeForce 8-series and later GPUs.
    • NVIDIA Frame Rate Target – dynamically adjusts frame rate to a user specified target. Support for this feature is enabled via third party applications via NVAPI.
    • NVIDIA Surround Technology – Adds the following new Surround capabilities. Visit GeForce.com to learn more.
      • Add in a fourth accessory display to get access to your email, web, or other applications while you game.
      • Maximize an application to a single physical display when in Surround mode (enabled by default).
      • Confine the Windows Taskbar to the center display (enabled by default).
      • Enable bezel peeking – a feature which enables users to temporarily peek behind the monitor bezels using a hotkey (Ctrl + Alt + B). This feature is designed to be used in conjunction with bezel corrected resolutions.
      • Add or remove resolutions from the list of Surround resolutions (only those selected will be available to applications).
      • Full center display acceleration for single wide display modes (center display must be connected to the master GPU).

    They've added those features awhile back.

    I hate 3dvision and SLI because all they do is consume resources.

    This is BS "FXAA delivers similar quality to 4x multi-sample antialiasing (MSAA)" but overall good support for surround and SLI

    Meh, if I were still playing alan wake, sli support for it would be nice, but other than that, who cares.

    They need to release more detailed change logs though. Those are so vague. There could be other fixes that I may want, but I don't know about.

    Umm this is not the release notes, this is the exact same as last release notes. The SLI for Orcs must die and alan wake is already there. Along with other things.

    Yah this is 301.34 driver..this is not a new release its been out for awhile now on nvidia site since April 9th.

    .34 isn't even on the geforce website, .24 is the latest there.

    Not saying the rest of what you said is wrong, only that .34 hasn't been available at least for me. .24 came out in April though.

    Fixes? That implies that the previous drivers were broken in someway. Surely this can't be true, everyone on here says nvidia drivers are flawless. Please remove such slander from the OP.

    The drivers are only for 670 and 690. Dont know how "ton of fixes and performance enhancements" can apply to a card thats just been released today and one that hasnt been released yet.

    Heck no you are totally correct. but there are still optimizations they have to do for certain games,, and SLI etc..

    I installed it and you have new options in the nvpanel compared to the 301.24 ,,its solid soo far played a few games,,, etc....

    I wouldn't call it BS at all. It typically smooths edges better than 4xMSAA, but does very little to reduce shimmering.
