Update (3/16): NVIDIA released a new beta driver earlier tuned just for Tomb Raider. The new driver is labeled the 314.21 beta, which sees an increase of 45% at 1080p and 60% at 2560x1600 on a GTX 680. All GeForce GTX cards can benefit from the beta driver, however, so be sure to head to GeForce.com and give it a download!
Thanks Shadow of Death!
Tomb Raider arrived last week to much critical acclaim, as the latest entry reboots the franchise to show Lara Croft's beginnings. However, everything wasn't all roses, as some PC gamers were experiencing some rather severe technical problems; namely anyone running NVIDIA and Intel hardware. The good news is a patch has arrived aimed at NVIDIA and Intel users to hopefully solve the crashes.
The new patch should automatically download the next time Steam is online. Aside from the aforementioned users, the patch also addresses various crashes at startup and selecting items in the Options menu. Some graphical glitches have been fixed too, along with a bug preventing access to the fullscreen mode. Other improvements have been made to TressFX and even some gameplay fixes, like being able to progress on the beach area.
NVIDIA is working on a new driver as well, which unfortunately didn't receive final game code until the weekend before launch. Problems arise when trying to run Tomb Raider at max settings on a GeForce card, but it sounds like that'll be a thing of the past soon enough.
