    Last driver I tested was 376.19 and I had horrible input lag on my GTX 1080.

    Has anyone done some test to see latency between 368.85 and the newer drivers on Pascal?

    I haven't done a comparison, but, from the DPC numbers I'm getting; 376.48 is very good if not excellent.

    Hi there

    What I have tried Win10 and Win7, Win7 has or have lowest DPC, I'm still on 373.06 drivers which are OK(at least I'm not getting TDR errors or CUDA errors in rendering), in Win10 tried several drivers amd with all of them I've got high DPC, updated all drivers etc and still same issue

    I would try to update MEI as first and network drivers

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    376.09 is the only driver that's been good for me so far on my 1080, haven't tested 376.48 though. All the others had some form of stuttering and/or high dpc/input lag or some other type of issues like flickering.

    I'm baffled at how bad Nvidia drivers has been lately. Sometime ago drivers were screwy for older than the 900 series card, but now it's bad for everyone.

    It almost feels like back in 2003, when there was huge FPS fluctuations between drivers.

    You are not alone who is baffled

    Previous drivers or drivers which has been released before Pascal has been faultless, some minimal issues in some SW but nothing like post Pascal release, I've never seen such amount of TDR or CUDA errors in Win7 with latest drivers, if I would be on Maxwell GPU only then I would stay away from latest drivers

    Currently running 373.06 drivers which seems works OK with most of the renderers although I'm still getting TDR errors in some SW which are exclusively related to Pascal GPU as with GTX Titan X running alone no TDR errors or no CUDA errors

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura
