Do you really have more than two USB 3.0 devices you need connected on the front/top simultaneously? I doubt it.

Good review, graphs were a bit confusing(it's the morning mkay) but good review. 

 

Seems like a good patch, didn't perform any miracles but it did give small boosts :) Wish there was a weaker CPU tested since I think that's where you'd see the biggest boosts. 

Agreed about the graphs...would have been better with them side-by-side to better see the difference, but sadly that's just because of OCC's antiquated system.

 

As for testing with a weak CPU, that makes no sense. When testing the limits of graphics cards, you want the best CPU possible, otherwise your CPU will become the limit.

 

 

I thought this driver was for lowering the cpu overhead(somewhat) like mantle did, but without a new api?

 

Nothing I've seen indicates that. The point of the update, afaik, was to prove that there are still a lot of performance gains out there to be grabbed from DX11 without the need for a new API (Mantle, DX12, or otherwise).

Mp3 player, just listen to your music and close your eyes, you might even fall asleep ;)

^This is what I do. I cannot fall asleep on buses or planes either, but I still just close my eyes and listen to music (when not playing video games).
