Cus Watch Dogs is coming out soon.. and there is no official.. non-beta.. drivers out that support 880M..

Bougth G750JZ just to get best experience in Watch Dogs. :)
Can we expect drivers soon? Not beta as that is unsafe. Called beta for a reason. Can cause card to overheat.

The 880m is the newest mobile card for the laptop. The drivers will most likely be out a couple days after the release or the first week in June. Depends how quickly they can get the official one out, the beta will probably be out before the release or a couple days after so keep watch.

Nvidia BETA drivers released from the Nvidia site are ok to use Master Po, nothing to worry about.

If they don't help, roll back, but they aren't going to cause the card to overheat, the Asus cooling will keep it cool, and the GPU thermal protective protection will keep it from damage, or Nvidia wouldn't release the BETA and allow it to be downloaded from their corporate site.

Major games get new Nvidia updates, usually through a BETA first, check the release notes for the next BETA / release to see if it will help with Watch Dogs.

Here is a link to the Forum for the current 337.50 BETA, where talk of problems with the BETA will focus, some Release Highlights, a link to the release notes. Something similar will come out with the next BETA and Release.

BETA's help a lot with new games, and sometimes there will be a couple of BETA updates before the improvements come out in a WHQL Release.
