    Yup. I have used optimal power settings for couple of days , then went back to adaptive mode. Something is making huge mess in that mode , even related to flickering.


    Looks like i will wait for the next driver as usually.

    Q&A is really terrible at nvidia.

    I have another request for users hitting the video memory stuck at 810Mhz issue. Could you email me the following:

    1) GPU make and model
    2) Are you running single GPU or SLI
    3) Can you extract the VBIOS from your card and email it to me at driverfeedback@nvidia.com? Here is a guide for extracting the VBIOS:
    http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4188/
    4) Does your issue go away if you set Power Management Mode to "Adaptive" or "Prefer Maximum Performance" and then reboot your PC?

    How about the core clock stuck issue? All series are effected with this "feature".

    I won't try this driver to see the "final fix" for flickering issue due to causing lot more issues on the side hand.
    How about DirectX 12 driver to Fermi?

    Friend of mine just reproduced this core clock issue on 480 too, right away.
    Same happened on 680.

    This issue is most likely due to a problem with the driver and their OCing of said GPU prior to installing the new driver.

    1.) Using whatever OCing tool you use, Afterburner, EVGA Precision etc etc. Restore your GPU defaults.

    2.) Uninstall all OCing software.

    3.) Uninstall the display driver.

    4.) Reboot into safemode and run DDU.

    5.) Re-install the latest driver.

    6.) Check performance.

    7.) Re-install OCing software and re-do your OC.

    No issues here on my TitanXP SLI.

    no oc here, always use ddu. It is the driver.

    request sent.

    The pascal SLI wrong memory useage is finally fixed now praise the lord :)
    No more incorrect vram useage in any games so far.

    Something is not configured right, since your PCie bus interface is 2.0 x16 and not 3.0 x16? Performance is double on PCie 3.0.

    Dishonored 2 runs much smoother with this one


    120fps @ ultra 1440p , FXAA low

    Another inadequate release

    Nvidia hasn't released a viable driver since the 1080 was released to market. Primarily Pascal has been unusable for months because of the latency issues.

    Now we have a stream of driver releases that are obviously not going through any sort of QA. So here we are and we still do not have an adequate driver for Pascal. This is unacceptable Manuel.

    I for one would prefer that you guys cool your jets and actually produce a viable Pascal driver and stop trying to meet these game release deadlines.

    I totally support team green but we aren't paying $250.00 for video cards anymore. This product is at a price point that demands better support from Nvidia.

    PCIE 3.0 or 2.0 doesn't make much difference. You can measure in the very heavy scenario maybe 5-10 fps. Normally , only 2-5 fps difference.

    Now you see my point why i do not making my upgrade on the green line.

    Nvidia can make the fortune of money but the support and the driver is under the acceptable level...



    One of the worst thing is, the core stuck issue has been reported by 1xxx, 9xx,7xx,6xx,5xx and 4xx series owners. Reply from nvidia: we cannot reproduce the issue. Means f@ck yourself, we do not care.

    If nvidia unable to fix the flickering issue with the high refresh rate monitors, will be another big failure since lot more monitors will be sold from now and in the future with this option.

    This driver seems to have locked some users permanently to "optimal" mode.

    I honestly have no idea what group of idiots decided that optimal was something that was needed. It lowers performance, doesn't really save anymore power, and causes massive framedrops in everything it's enabled in. That includes browsers when watching YouTube.

    Adaptive has been great for the most part, and basically acts like speed-step where it works by GPU load.

    Oh, I also get desktop flickering with Optimal, less so with Adaptive, and rarely on Max Performance.

    I would NEVER leave it on Optimal for anything, especially gaming unless you want your card downclocking to 800mhz mid game. The fact that they're now forcing it upon us as a "default" option is ridiculous. Some people don't even look at options and then simply complain that their new 10 series card can't even play 1080p video without massive stutters. Optimal needs to go into the trash, where it belongs.

    I found this part a bit funny.. Steep Open beta ready driver.

    Steep beta was from 11th until 14th November.. :p


    EDIT: Or will there be another beta? :nerd:
    Well I played it with 375.76HF and it ran "ok", apart from absurd MSAA performance impact.

    Nvidia just these days reported record financial results. This here leaves a very sour taste, even though I probably won't be affected with my 980ti cards.

    I would say the marketing groups. Always nice to come up with something which is sounds great. Downside is, not working and causing more troubles than goods.

    Maybe it's an inside joke, calling it optimal, when it is in fact, the opposite..."abysmal" lol

    Same, the performance in COD is awful with this SLI profile.

    I'm loathe to say this but I'm starting to think that Nvidia should ditch SLI altogether in favor of the optimal single GPU experience as the SLI 'support' at this point is beyond a joke (whether the blame for this lies with Nvidia, developers or a combination of both is quite irrelevant).
