There are a ton of great games releasing this March – including SimCity, StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm, Resident Evil 6, Hawken PhysX, and more.  We’ve been working overtime to get ready.

NVIDIA today rolled out a new set of beta drivers optimized for these titles, just two weeks after the release of the GeForce R313 Game Ready drivers for Crysis 3.

GeForce 314.14 beta drivers boost performance by up to 23 percent and are now available for automatic download and installation using GeForce Experience. That makes it easy to stay up to date with each new GeForce Game Ready Driver.

The new drivers – and our new GeForce Experience service – are examples of how we’re working hard to deliver more immersive gameplay to millions of gamers. We want to thank the million PC gamers everywhere who have already downloaded the open beta of our GeForce Experience and are helping us make it better.

Here are some examples of performance increases in GeForce 314.14 drivers:
