As you may know, NVIDIA claims that its latest beta driver offers up to 64% single GPU performance and 71% SLI performance increases. 
 
The only way to test that is, of course, to run the same benchmark before and after. And so I did with Thief 4 on my GTX 760 SLI setup:
 
Before (average of 3 runs, in-game benchmark):
 
Min: 34.3
Avg: 71.7
 
After:
 
Min: 45.5
Avg: 73.6
 
Average frame rate gain seems insignificant, but the minimum frame rate increase is nothing to sneeze at, providing more consistent gameplay experience.
 
Feel free to share your results.

It's in his sig, heh.

 

I think I have an old 3dmark but it's before I changed the CPU HSF so sadly I can't add much.
