    Just had a TDR crash on a machine with a GTX580, no PrecisionX or etc running, just firefox and filezilla. Crash reports are saved on dropbox if the Nvidia rep is still around...

    It also has a profile for file desktop, explorer, skype, WMC, flashplayer, etc,.. imo this shouldn't be a problem.
    Games obviously have higher priority so it will use that profile when its running, well at least it makes sense.



    EDIT: as HeavyHemi said, guess we posted at the same time lol ^

    yes I would like to see proof of that please

    EDIT: I actually was reading the release notes for 353.30 and it was mentioned the optimizations are included:

    "Implements optimizations and bug fixes that provide increased performance for Kepler-based GPUs. " page 9

    True, but Chrome might not like it when certain game profiles are running, so there might still be a conflict of sorts. Just wondering what's causing all those crashes people are reporting, that's all. I'm curious if it also happens on older versions of Chrome.

    I myself haven't had any TDR or other crashes with the 353.38 drivers so far and I've been running Afterburner again for the custom fan profile and Logitech G19s LCD monitoring as well. I hope it remains that way.

    Played The Witcher 3 with these for 2 hours now. No more white flashes in game with TDR errors in event viewer, basically a TDR crash with white screen in game.

    I never had the Chrome crashes, use Firefox instead.

    Much faster and smoother than the 347.88 drivers on my system, got rid of the irritating stutter in TW3 for me. Needs more testing, but keepers so far.

    Note: I don't use overclocking software, so can't comment on that.

    So far so good.

    At first I thought the driver stopped responding crashes were Chrome specific then I had Firefox crash on me the other day (driver stopped responding) with .12 drivers. The trigger seemed to be, first play a gaming session, close game, open Firefox/Chrome, leave the pc to idle for a while, enough for power states to relax, then return to browsing. Crash happened many times that way.

    Never had the issue you talk about. I had no crashing in browsers with the 353.06 or .30 drivers. I did have TDR's in game with the 353.06 and .30's though. Error; nVidia driver has crashed and recovered, with a error code 13 in event viewer. In The Witcher 3, screen would flash white for a split second, then I would check event viewer there would be another TDR error. The 347.88 did not have these errors in event viewer, and nether do the 353.38's.

    No issues with these so far.

    Mine has been doing TDR's still on GTX960 & GTX580 systems with these drivers, though it's MUCH more rare than the other drivers (2-3 times in a 10 hour period). Neither system is running PrecisionX or running hot/oC'd etc....happens with Firefox, Chrome & Adobe CC 2015 apps... (with GPU accel enabled that is).

    Seriously, Manuel, have you ever heard of this issue? I have reinstalled all components and just installed new hotfix driver. It has to be a driver problem at this point. I have no idea what else it could possibly be. I cloned my HDD a while back and that is the only other thing that has changed besides drivers.

    I literally cannot play games with custom AA profiles in Inspector WITHOUT AFTERBURNER ACTIVELY ON SCREEN and displaying numbers. This seems crazy to me lol. If I do NOT have it on screen and active the game becomes a choppy mess. As soon as I put the display to on screen the game again becomes perfectly stable and smooth. I have uninstalled and reinstalled all relevant drivers.

    Well for the time being I just made Afterburner on screen as small as possible and a darkish grey with only FPS and a high polling rate. If it has to be there then I might as well make it hardly viewable. I would still appreciate at least some feedback on this weird bug if possible.

    AB overlay don't have to be active for AB polling to work - it works in the background as well. Do you by any chance play in a borderless/window? Have you tried full screen?

    Only in fullscreen. I have driver Vsync on but didn't matter either way. I have prefer full performance on as well. I uninstalled AB totally and the specified AA profiles do not work correctly with this app totally off my system.

    I never play with AB exe active in games, only when taking screenshots. But now with certain custom AA profiles I have to activate it. But it cannot JUST be active, the OSD HAS to be on as well. I just use high polling and only display FPS to make as little as possible interruptions.

    I tried uninstalling everything at this point. Has to be driver related in some way or something I am not familiar with. Not too annoying at this point just a really weird bug I hope can be fixed. I'd say 6 months ago I did not have this problem.

    I can CONFIRM this does not affect all profiles. It does NOT affect COJ Gunslinger at all. Nor did it affect Outlast or Sonic Transformed in any way. Both those run fine without AB running at all.

    But Pinball FX2, Batman: AA, and Ducktales are all very affected without AB running in OSD mode. Batman and Pinball are horribly choppy.

    I did install standalone Physx on the driver before the hotfix driver because that one driver messed something up. Could this be at all Physx related?

    Having purple artifacts with these in TW3... usual gamebed, rolling back to 353.30 fixes this
