Default Nvidia Driver Improvements and Best Skyrim Sites

February 29th, 2012, 01:12
First this is a great list of places to visit in Skyrim (some mild spoilers so keep that in mind): http://www.ugo.com/games/skyrims-must-visit-locations



Also Nvidia released some drivers. I have been using them for a couple of days and have to say I saw a noticeable improvement, especially with the HD DLC. The eye candy is eye-poppingly sweet!

If you're playing Skyrim and have an Nvidia card, you'll definitely want to grab the latest driver update. The Nvidia site boasts of significant improvements to Skyrim framerates. Indoor scenes should run 45% faster and Skyrim's grand outdoor vistas will see a 16% boost. The drivers also come with an improved version of the ambient occlusion effect added by the last set of drivers. This adds a subtle layer of extra shadowing and darken the deep cracks in Skyrim's rocky landscapes, boosting their cragginess factor by about 14%.
