    Best I mean the ones that would give less stutter, not hundreds of fps. I want stability, tons of frames per second mean nothing if everything is gonna be a stutter fest. I've the 399.24 ones and now the 416.94 ones, both felt similar in performance and the games feel ok, bit of stutter on some. I don't even know anymore, nVidia drivers seem to vary so much from one to other.

    Maybe someone tried several drivers on Pascal and finally found one that gives the best gaming experience across all games?

    399.24 and 416.94 are good for 1063. But, as I said earlier in topic 418.81, the latest drivers have increased my fps from ~20fps to 60+ in Division 2.
    Idk, what is this magic, but it is incredible lmao. And I noticed that HITMAN 2 on the latest drivers (418.81) works much smoother than on 416.94.
    But water glitch is returned (like on 416.94), so I am waiting for the next drivers.

    p.s. about other games. Horizon 4, ACOdyssey, SotTR, Siege, RE2R works smooth too.

    Always use the latest driver unless you personally run into stability issues on it.

    According to whom? I've been benchmarking drivers on my machine for the last 3-4 years, there's almost no difference in performance on Pascal between what we had back in 2016 compared to what we have in 2019. Several games got noticeable boosts, no games lost anything.

    i think stutter would be reduced by having a card with more vram personally, these days.

    Yeah, that's true, no amount of optimization by driver will fix lack of VRAM. I think I just need a card with more memory.

    Well, we have the same GPU, so nothing to lose by giving them a try. Thanks for the advice!
