I was able to install it on Win 8.1 for my GTX 680 card with the default driver package. No modified inf needed. No need to disable driver signature enforcement. This driver is WDDM 1.3 on Windows 8.1 Preview. It is a complete driver package, containing 3D drivers, HD audio driver, PhysX.
This is a new driver family.

This 326.29 driver is r326_01-9.    DriverVer = 07/18/2013,
The 326.19 driver is r325_00-118. DriverVer = 07/13/2013,


Call of Duty Black Ops 2 works well with this driver.

326.29 is pretty similar to 326.19 in benchmarks.
