    Maybe its just me but after todays driver update, im finding the game to run a lot smoother. Previously I couldnt run the 20 car urd egt career race with out insane stuttering. But now I can run it at a stable 60 fps (vsync on) with barely any hiccups and even bump up some of the settings. The release notes indicate there are some dx10/11 fixes. Could this be why?

    What video card and OS version do you have? Sometimes the changes are more sensible on newest card models.

    I think it is more of an placebo effect tbh.

    There have been similar reports elsewhere so there may be more to it.

    My uneducated guess would be it has to do with the dx10/11 optimizations mentioned in the changelog

    Good info, thanks all. Remember tell your OS and card model as for some models it may not reflect better performance, on some cases it even is worst.

    Win 8.1 Pro 64-bit with 2x 760's in SLI. Getting The same frame-rate I was before, but a lot less stutters. I was getting some serious lag when going over aggressive kerbs for whatever reason, and that seems to have gone away altogether now.

    Maybe a nice little SLI boost hidden in there somewhere, since it's a smoother overall experience.

    So the only thing you have to do to configure SLI is to go into the NVIDIA control panel and set it to 'Maximize 3D Performance'. So it should look like this when you're done:

    And as for NVIDIA Inspector- I'd love to help you with it, but I don't actually use it. And if I can make a humble suggestion; don't use it unless you know precisely what you're doing as just one wrong setting can potentially ruin your performance completely.

    At first I thought that the new drivers gave a big boost in fps but as soon as I noticed the jaggies on screen I realised it had turned SGSS off in nVidia inspector...

    So, no difference for me compared to previous drivers. (GTX 780Ti)

    Didn't notice a difference in fps but I did some testing with the PP settings. It seems like it's what is causing the shuttering. It also happens when going over kerbs like others have mentioned. Turning off PP effects fixes it for me.
