NVIDIA has released a new beta GeForce driver. Version 275.27 adds support for the newly released GeForce GTX 560, improved display scaling and Nvidia Update.
Beta driver 275.27 adds supports for the newly released GeForce GTX 560. Nvidia cites performance increases in several games compared to the current 270.61 drivers. Examples include:
- Up to 4% in Crysis 2
- Up to 5% in Civilization V with SLI
- Up to 9% in Portal 2
- Up to 13% in Bulletstorm with Antialiasing enabled
- Up to 15% in Batman: Arkham Asylum with PhysX High
- Up to 6% in Crysis 2
- Up to 8% in Portal 2

Nvidia also says that gaming performance may increase by up to 12% for dual-core CPUs in CPU-limited cases.
Display scaling options have been improved and now show a preview. It is now also possible to set scaling options for all display types including analog displays.
An override option has also been added for Windows 7 that forces games to respect scaling options. For games that don’t support custom resolutions, desktop resizing now creates a custom, resized resolution with 1:1 pixel mapping and resizes standard resolutions.
This optional component will automatically check for driver updates as well as the latest game profiles.
