Nvidia has now launched their DirectX 12 optimised Geforce 378.78 driver, which comes game ready for Tom Clancy's The Division and with support for Nvidia's GTX 1080 Ti. 
To create this driver Nvidia has been working with the developers of a wide range of DirectX 12 titles like Ashes of the Singularity, Gears of War 4, Rise of the Tomb Raider and Tom Clancy's The Division in order to refine their driver's codebase to make the best use of this new API. These changes should affect all DirectX 12 games moving forward, allowing users of Nvidia GPU to achieve higher performance levels with this new API than previously. 

We do plan on testing this driver with multiple DirectX 12 games to see exactly how much performance that Nvidia has gained, though they are talking about gains of around 10%-16% select titles.
