    I had this in nvinspector

    16xAF
    FXAA
    60fps limiter
    1frame to render ahead (i think its was mostly this)
    threaded opt.- on
    single display
    prefer max perf.


    when I reset profile, re-applied my settings and set frames to app controlled it was ok again. I also lowered system ram OC from 2400 to stock 2133, will test OC again :D

    Although I get occasional streaming hickups/jitter (multiplayer), 353.06 had the least or almost none. Mostly during morning or mid day, night or sundown time is super smooth.
    So far its something with shadows any smoothing shadow,. Also by foliage its not so fluid - its when gpu hits its max usage (97-98%).. Hopefully nvidia team fixes this too.

    And nvidia team please fix PCSS shadows, they are bugged and not showing properly, missing almost from everything, cars, trees, etc (same in benchmark). Every other setting works fine including AMD CS.

    No TDR's here anymore, in fact, since owning these 980Ti's I haven't encountered a single crash.

    See how long that lasts :D

    Just a heads up for anyone using Windows 10 Insider Preview, these are the drivers that get installed with build 10158 unless you've disabled driver updates for NVIDIA through Windows Update.

    And I finally got DX12 info shown correctly :banana:

    Unfortunately these drivers still cause Chrome to flicker like crazy for me in Win 10. (SLI)

    No problem with these drivers with single 970. No problem with these drivers with 970's SLI. No problem with these drivers with my new 980Ti either. ALL in the same machine I might add (in sig).

    Rock solid in every game I try and Chrome is fine as well as Firefox.

    I don't overclock my cards. Maybe this is why sooooooo many of you are having problems and insisting it's not your overclocks...

    I'd normally agree but I get the same issue with non overclocked PC / cards. My previous 780 GTX cards had the same issue.

    That's great, I have checked gtx980 and 750 ti as well

    980 - 12.1
    750ti - 11.0, but I think nvidia promised maxwell v1 to be 12.0 at least.


    Will need to try 290x later as well.

    From first day release these are installed and no problems so far,not at all. Seems really stable, very good work Nvidia.

    Yeah, I've got to say these are pretty damn good drivers so far. I am really loving how well FC4 is running now. The last driver for whatever reason was just giving me a lot of problems in FPS stability. It seems they are on the right track here. I did lower my OC a tiny bit on GPU and VRAM to make sure things were solid.

    I think sometimes we get carried away with tiny increments of OC. They never seem to make a ton of difference for me at this point.

    Oh I have no doubt many problems stem from this. On system memory and the GPU for sure. I noticed going a little too far on my GPU and Far Cry 4 would tag out quite a bit. Nothing major and no hardcore crashes just seemed a little unstable after an hour. Went back down and I'm fine and as a boost these drivers on a clean install are smooth as butter on full Ultra except Nvidia shadows which are too rich for my blood.

    It would be cool if Manuel could somehow look into the AA profile FPS bug we are getting with some games that having Afterburner OSD on solves for whatever crazy reason.

    An OC wouldn't cause TDR's when no game is present, and none of my cards are OC'd.

    Not sure if reported yet or not.

    But I found a bug, if I connect my second monitor up GPU1 sticks to 899MHz core speed and memory clocks stick to 3506MHz.

    I am using a 1080p GSYNC via Display Port and a 1080p monitor via HDMI.

    Once I disconnect the second monitor GPU1 clocks go back to normal idle 135/324

    Hm,weird bug, don't have any problem with two monitors connected similar as you have though second is with DVI, can you connect via DVI instead HDMI and test ?

    I don't have same setup, but have read many have issues with higher clock if your using a 144hz panel , once backed down to 120hz refresh rate and clocks go to idle .

    I think it is just that the load gets to a tipping point with the low idle clocks set by maxwell, that it has to bump up clocks .
    I wonder if a 324mhz idle clock would help.

    An OC on system memory could and yeah it could still interfere with your system without a game. Your GPU is not just for gaming. But yes you are right there are still a lot of bugs in drivers for sure that do not have anything to do with OCs.

    I don't remember them promising anything on feature levels. GM107 is FL11_0 in DX11 and is unlikely to be any higher in DX12.

    Display has stop responding and recovered.
