lol no issue here. y don't u try single gpu?
so far all my games run just fine (pes, fifa, nba 2k, bc2, bf3)... bc2 issue finally fixed.
hope it stays this way in the future.
Well, played BF4, rock stable. Haven't had the opportunity to spend time playing other games.
fifa 15 not smooth. damn the game got issue. no limit fps is smooth but got coil whine which i can't stand.
had 3 BSOD until now with this driver :V
It can't be that difficult to let us know what OS you're using guys. It does help in determining and fixing issues with drivers.
Im sorry guys, I been wanting to ask something about the problem people have with higher refresh rate and clock speeds, and I might seen a little skeptical about it.
where does it say that high refresh rate wont effect the idle clocks speeds?
by what I been reading. it seems to be normal and is expected seeing 144hz requires more bandwidth even on idle.
and it just by luck if nvidia can get the clocks speeds lower without a tdr happening from lack of power.
nvidia always takes long time adding new dx support to cards.
that reason why I was with AMD so long because nvidia took forever dx 11 support.
AMD had directx 11 cards out before nvidia did.
Idle clocks are fixed for me on Windows 10 running 144Hz, nice
I think there is a difference between shipping a card with a new version of DX and supporting it on an older piece of hardware. The 4xx series went up against the 5000/6000 series of AMD, neither of which are getting DX12 support at all.
And it's definitely not "always". Nvidia launched DX10 cards nearly 5 months before AMD did.
win 10 64bit
first time to have 3 BSOD with the same driver.
edit: and as usual I uninstalled every nvidia driver/software in normal mode
then reboot to safe mode and used ddu,then after restart I used ccleaner in normal mode and installed the driver (everything except hd audio driver & geforce experience),
I do that every time I install new nvidia driver.
Probably a Windows problem, I think this is since Windows 10 November update.
Still no fix for the AA Stutter bug or broken 16-bit resolution DSR?
Easy to tell for anyone. Download the free demo of Pinball FX2 on steam, force any form of SGSSAA with 0x000020C1 with any GPU OSD like Afterburner disabled. And load up the demo tables. Look at the insane constant stuttering.
This isn't the only game affected.
Last working 347.88.
This issue has been reported and known for well over 6 months now.
Load up any older game that supports or uses 16-bit color resolutions. (Legend of Heroes Trails in the Sky is one such game.)
With DSR enabled, select the 16-bit color resolution in game instead of 32-bit and watch the gamma be crushed into oblivion.
In the case of Trails in the Sky, it uses 16-bit color exclusively even with 32-bit selected in the launcher.
Making DSR unusable, considering the game has no AA of it's own for a DX8 game.
Last working 347.88
cheers as it happens i do have it set to this anyway so i guess all is ok
Shameful how? There are only bare minimum benchmarks and exactly zero games out for DX12 so far.
Sorry to quote myself but it makes sense to repeat what I've said here so others can see it in case, they too, are experiencing the same issue.
Well, it seems that reverting back to the v359.06 driver DID fix the BSOD issue with Legend of Eisenwald and Pillars of Eternity BUT while I was navigating the NVIDIA control panel I experienced another BSOD, the same error as above: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (nvlddmkm.sys)
Not really sure what is going on here to be honest as I have never ever experienced a BSOD before while using the NVIDIA control panel or, indeed, while loading up a game!!! :3eyes:
Could my graphics card be damaged? When I Google-d the error, I found similar threads regarding this error and the general consensus seems to be that it is a software error related to nvlddmkm.sys and fixable by updating to a newer driver. Somewhat ironic considering that THIS is the latest driver.
Now I do have a new Dell monitor and the only thing that I have installed since I got it last Saturday is the Dell Display Manager tool, a program that allows operating system control of my display such as brightness, contrast, screen saver, etc. I'm wondering if it is this program that might be causing a conflict with the display driver as I would guess that it is integrated into Windows at a low-level in order to be able to do the things it does.
Thinking about it, I did notice a lot of errors in the Event log relating to nvlddmkm.sys when I was playing around with the DDM tool's option to turn the screen off when the Windows screensaver kicks in. It could be a coincidence though. Logically, this has to a software issue because the issue is not random but can be triggered by loading specific games or using going to a certain section of the NVIDIA control panel.
P.S. My issue may appear to be an isolated one simply because I am one of the few people to own that Dell monitor, a display that is primarily aimed at professional users not gamers.
Well, after receiving a message from someone over on the GeForce.com forum with the same Dell monitor and Dell Display Manager software as me and who was also experiencing BSODs, I was almost convinced that it was the DDM software that was the root cause of this issue.
Sadly, it's not as I have just received another BSOD while trying to set the Anti-aliasing to 8x in Kerbal Space Program which I bought in the Steam Sale yesterday. I tried again after a reboot, changed a few other settings and applied them, including resolution and various graphics options, but the BSOD occurs in that game *only* when I try to apply the AA setting after changing it.
What the hell is up with this driver on my system? Why am I suddenly getting constant and repeatable (as in they are triggered by specific games or sections within programs) BSODs all of a sudden after years of running a stable system? I am convinced that they are not hardware-related otherwise they would be random whereas I can replicate the issue 100% by doing the same thing that triggered the BSOD in the first place.
Really not happy about this as loading a game feels like playing Russian Roulette and I have no idea what kind of damage/corruption these BSODs are doing to my system.
P.S. Does anyone know of a tool that can analyse the minidumps that Windows saves after BSOD crashes as that might throw more light on what the cause could be? Thanks.
i had this too Blue screen but i dont know if its cpu low voltage or nvidia with older 355.12 driver
is worthly to upgrade drivers for gtx660 and w8.1?
Probably not. This driver seems to be more problematic than most. It should be pulled tbh.
Hope that helps
