If you like to keep your PC looking all WHQL-certified, you might have been waiting since October 2011 for a new NVIDIA driver. That's when release 285.62 arrived on the scene.

There have been numerous beta releases in the interim, but the GeForce manufacturer has finally introduced a new WHQL driver that takes us up a few notches to 295.73.

The new release, available from GeForce.com, touts performance increases in a number of games, including The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which enjoys an FPS boost of over 40 per cent in certain scenarios.

A bump in performance is always welcome - and in this case long overdue - but NVIDIA also rounds out the driver package with a couple of other noteworthy additions.

Support for Ambient Occlusion has been added for Skyrim, Diablo III and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, and new SLI profiles are available for a wide range of games including the popular Mass Effect 3 demo.

Point your browser to GeForce.com for a full list of everything that's new, and remember to share your upgrade experience with other users in the comments section below.

Driver improvements for a game that isnt out yet eh? I see…
D3 is in testing and will be a massive release. Keeping drivers optimised now means less problems at release.

You're not in the Beta then? ;)
The most important fix is the fact that you can now watch TV (live or recorded) in Media Center again, something they broke in the 285.62 drivers, forcing us to use beta versions.

I had no probs watching TV in MC using 285.62. What OS? Win 7?
