For me and my 980ti, best driver is 377.83 quadro modded... fast enough with latest games and no lag
The best driver for me is 391.74 Quadro, video card is a Gigabyte GTX 670.
I am not into conspiracy theories, but..
I just finished setting up my new pc. I do have a GTX980, which i havent replaced with a new one. However:
- Downloaded latest version of cinebench from their page
- Kept the drivers that windows did automagically install ( i think 388.something, not sure)
- Did the opnegl test and got 177 fps
Right after that, in a matter of minutes:
- Downloaded the latest nvidia drivers (417.71-desktop-win10-64bit-international-whql) and installed them
- Did the same test with cinebench and I do not get barelly over 140
I mean WTF? And why are people here telling use the latest bla bla?
Am I overseeing something or not considering...

@SleazyE No nvidia always cared for older gen users. Run the tests again, you are not seeing it right.
@warlord well as for the res, it was the same, or are you referring to something different.
@Undying #sarcazm? right
I don't know, wasn't it AMD that killed support for pre-GCN cards in late 2015? Some of which were even flagship up until the end of 2011? Isn't that the same company that just now is starting to fix the laptop drivers nightmare by unifying drivers? The same company that artificially limited VSR on certain cards and just a few months back 'announced' support for Ultrawide supersampled resolutions while the competition has had those for a few years now? I wouldn't be so hasty.
I was using the last Vulkan drivers and updated to the latest, IMO the Vulkan ones were better as they didn't mess with the DSR as these latest did.
I'm even thinking about rolling back both my 2080 and the GTX 980 machines to the 417.63 drivers.
417.22 seems ok atm, anything newer or older 416.xx is a mess.
Did you perform a full clean driver install? With DDU? Then installing the new driver without any previous config from the other?
