    At the time I posted was interested in VRAM usage. Though the newer driver seemed to use less for the most part and did not see any performance degradation due to the amount of VRAM used. FPS for some games were better with the new driver though did vary.

    Yeah, it includes Windows 8 support so combined Win7/Win8 OS marketshare of about 25% is still too much to completely ignore.
