    Hello i hope you all are doing fine, if not, i hope it gets better. I have been reviewing some drivers that i think could work fine, but i would like to know your opinion. I play some AAA games, which driver would you recommend me to use?

    PM'd you. But, most people will say 'always the latest/newest driver released'.

    Software goes with drivers. Driver should never be older than Operating System. Try figuring out what windows version and build you have to find equivalents.

    "Latest is always the best and greatest", goes with both OS update and DRV upd.

    What best driver for one person is not always the best for another, no one pc is build same hw and same software and same drivers, only you decided which is best for your system and card,

    It's because the standard answer for which driver is best should always be the latest one, unless that user faces an issue with their system, in which case they report the issue to nVidia and revert back to the last/best working driver that they used until the new issue is resolved.

    For Pascal, from modern drivers, 457.00 Vulkan is relatively fast in most benchmarks and overall 3D performance but it's also bit buggy(occasionally driver will crash). I did not try newer Vulkan versions so I am comparing it to latest GameReady drivers. Also take note that sometimes one driver will be better in Benchmark A while other will be better in Benchmark B and they will be same in Benchmark C, so it's very case-specific.

    I have tested 457.67(I know it's older driver but I'm slow) and it's even faster than 457.00 on my GTX1060, one of fastest drivers since 3xx.xx series. Moreover the crashing, while still present isn't as common as before. Oddly, RGB settings disappeared from "change resolution" tab but sometimes I am getting "integer scaling" checkbox appear in "adjust desktop size and position" tab, it's just greyed out(and yes, sometimes because sometimes it doesn't appear there at all - Vulkan Betas are really odd drivers).

    My GTX 1070 FTW (same Pascal architecture) is still rocking on my parent's computer, and it deserves always the latest driver. No issues, all bugs fixed, and best compatibility, always go for the latest.
