it can simply be a communication trick . with nothing real toward GTAIV in it... knowning NV , it wouldnt surprise me.

"nv recommend to use drivers xxx.xx..." doesn't means "nv declare +15% perfs on GTA4 ...

I'm downloading the drivers now, I will post back ASAP if I see any improvements of any kind.

Gotta love NVIDIA being on the ball, more so than ATI.
