Recently released, this is the equivalent to the nVIDIA Graphics Driver 311.27 but is supported by ASUS

Thanks bud, but where did you get it from ? It's not displayed on Asus website. Is it for G75vw or VX ?

If it matters, looks like that driver is actually posted under the ASUS 'unapproved' notebook vga drivers page for Win8 64-bit that you can access from this link (http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=VGA&p=3&s=111&os=36&hashedid=n/a).

The unapproved drivers are not listed by model, but I would think you could try it on the G75Vx model and maybe the G75Vw model although we should ask someone who has tried it to be sure.

DanishKid, the thing is that there's no nVIDIA Graphics Driver 311.27 (look here http://www.geforce.com/drivers/beta-legacy). By the way I do hope this Asus released driver is the equivalent to the nVIDIA Graphics Driver 314.22 because it wouldn't make sense to release a customized driver of an old one.
However, it would be a good idea if someone in the know would explain how Asus customized driver versions correspond to the official Nvidia driver versions.

I updated all my drivers from this link:

Asus Driver Search (http://support.asus.com/download/options.aspx?SLanguage=en&type=1)

I typed VGA, then Windows 8 64 bit since the Windows 8 drivers for nVIDIA are fully compatible with Windows 7

The reason I choose the ASUS ones over nVIDIA's is because I once ran into a problem where LAV video decoder wouldn't run properly with the nVIDIA latest drivers but ran perfectly with the ASUS ones so I only stick to ASUS drivers as they're tested to work on our notebooks

Yeah, every once in a while, you'll see one of those unapproved drivers finally be officially approved and show up under the approved downloads for your notebook model (as long as it's fairly recent), so you might consider them customized drivers for ASUS notebooks.

If you ever run into (common?) driver issues, have tried the latest released ASUS drivers for your notebook, and don't mind trying unapproved ASUS drivers, I would check here first to see if a solution is available.

Unfortunately, I don't get to talk to our RD and am not 'in the know' if you just want to ignore me, but I'm guessing we must start with some nVidia reference driver version (3.11xx?) and just continue to tweak or customize from our side.

We probably need to get the drivers feature list for each version and have someone test the drivers to see which features are included or missing to confirm this is correct, but I wouldn't think the 'ASUS' nVIdia driver version 9.18.13.1127 (311.27) would have any features from the newer nVIdia reference driver versions 312.xx and above (unless they were somehow added later?).

Anyway, if you are having nVIdia driver issues with your ASUS notebook and don't mind trying unapproved drivers (or have everything backed up), I would first make sure you are using the latest ASUS approved drivers for your notebook, try the newer ASUS unapproved drivers, and then try the drivers from the nVIdia website last. You can add checking the ROG forums for others experiencing the same issue in there somewhere too.
