Do newer Nvidia Drivers actually improve render times in Blender?

(Thesonofhendrix) #1

Or is it only necessary to stay up to date for video games? Seems to me they should have already optimized the drivers for CUDA and cycles a long time ago, so im not bothering to download the latest drivers.

It depends from case to case.
For example the legends tell us that one night a NVidia developer had a dream where Blaise Pascal appeared and revealed him the secret to boost 3 times the performance of a card that was being kicked in the ass by another cheaper card.

BTW why this should be a lastest news?

i dont update my drivers because newer drivers mess up the themes on win7 on 2.74.
