NVIDIA Released 350.12 WHQL and AMD Released 15.4 Beta for Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V launched today at around midnight GMT worldwide. This corresponded to 7PM EDT for those of us in North America. Well, add a little time for Steam to unlock the title and a bit longer for Rockstar to get enough servers online. One thing you did not need to wait for was new video card drivers. Both AMD and NVIDIA have day-one drivers that provide support.

You can get the NVIDIA drivers at their landing page

You can get the AMD drivers at their release notes

Personally, I ran the game for about a half hour on Windows 10 (Build 10049) with a GeForce GTX 670. Since these drivers are not for the pre-release operating system, I tried running it on 349.90 to see how it performed before upgrading. Surprisingly, it seems to be okay (apart from a tree that was flickering in and out of existence during a cut-scene). I would definitely update my drivers if they were available and supported, but I'm glad that it seems to be playable even on Windows 10.

All I've seen is what this does for GTA.

I'm not a GTA player and nVidia Experience gives me: "Release Highlights not available".

Any fixes, improvements,other titles I might give a crap about?

That is pretty bad GPU scaling. Might be the driver overhead which will all be gone in Win10 and DX12
