The new GeForce 314.14 beta driver is now available to download. An essential update for gamers jumping into this month’s biggest and best releases, today’s driver ensures maximum system compatibility in games such as SimCity, StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, Resident Evil 6, and Hawken, a free-to-play first-person shooter being enhanced with hardware-accelerated PhysX effects later this week.

Other highlights include SLI and single-GPU performance gains of up to 21% in Sniper Elite V2, and 14% in Sleeping Dogs, and smaller gains in Batman: Arkham City, Battlefield 3, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.

Rounding out the release is an updated SLI profile for Resident Evil 6, helping increase your benchmark score, and a SLI profile for co-op shooter, Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army.

You can download the GeForce 314.14 beta drivers with one click from the GeForce.co.uk homepage; Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows 8 packages are available for desktop systems, and for notebooks there are Windows 7 and Windows 8 downloads that cover all non-legacy products.
