    Not sure if both of those games use Unity or not but a lot of indie games do...

    I've come across issues with some (not all) Unity engine games since upgrading to Windows 10 v1709 and these newer v387/v388 drivers with Road Redemption, Cuphead and Dungeons 3 either locking to 24 fps, 30 fps or fluctuating wildly between 30 fps one second, 100+ fps the next then back to 30 fps. I fixed those games only by forcing exclusive fullscreen via the -window-mode exclusive launcher command for each of those games.

    Really not sure whether it's the drivers, Windows or a combination of both since the drivers and this build of Windows add WDDM 2.3 support plus Microsoft made changes to the way Game mode and fullscreen games work in Windows 10.

    Stuttering when playing games with Cemu is gone, but it might be due to the latest version of the application and not the driver.

    these drivers exhibit the same instability introduced in the prior 387 driver
    Many SLI issues wether running 2x or 4x sli
    also

    Fast Synch introduced microstutter, and requires a workaround

    game crashes on:
    TitanFall2
    Vanishing of Ethan Carter Redux
    Agony demo
    We happy few
    Dying Light
    Echo
    Fallout4
    The Talos Principle (dx11 choice)
    Sam BFE

    of note
    when played on another computer with 2560x1440 the issues seem to go away,


    when played on the other build at 4k and 8k, the issues manifest heavily


    reverting to 385.12 or 385.69 seems to solve all issues

    I have the impression that all these issues are caused by the engine itself, not specifically windows or drivers. Unity is very unfriendly to any kind of advanced effect, like MSAA in DX9, SSAO, SLI and so on.

    Have you tried disabling full screen optimizations for the affected games?

    Neither this driver nor 387.92 will install for me, had to go back to 385.69 with my 2 x Titan X (Maxwell) SLI.
    Getting the 'device has a problem' error in device manager.

    I'm going to stick with the 387.92 drivers since i'm playing Middle-Earth Shadow of War and The Evil Within 2, but kind of odd how they didn't add Wolfenstein 2 since i'll be playing that game when it comes out. Haven't ran The Division for couple of weeks, but i'll be playing it @ DX11, with either High or Ultra on some of the settings.

    it sounds like double-buffered vsync is in action.

    dota 2 on vulkan mode has a horrible tearing with vsync on, characters move like they are moving inside an unstable liquid or something the linux bug apparently is on windows now, looks really terrible and vulkan is the only way to go if i try to enjoy the imba game mode because on dx9 or dx11 or olg the api apparently can't handle the stuff that's going on on there and the frame drops like mad no mather what resolution you are playing.

    I hope this is only on my end and need just to re-intall the driver.

    Anyone else having issues in FCU that games running in Windowed Fullscreen, or borderless, whatever it's called is running at half fps? Some people mentioned it's because adaptive v-sync with half refreshrate, i have v-sync off in everything i play and in Nvidia control panel (Global settings). In any Windows 10 version prior to FCU this is not a problem, nor on 8.1 and 7.

    I think a fix was mentioned for this in post #65

    Tried disabling full screen optimizations already?

    G-Sync is buggy with that release. I get tearing with G-Sync on, not obviously like with V-Sync off but there is tearing.

    Dead by daylight had a strange 30fps lock yesterday after 3rd match, It runs in borderless FS, so I also disabled game mode, was on whole time, but this fps lock stayed, even when I alt+tab few times, never saw this before..

    It started by loading screen and it stayed like that until I manually quit back to menu and then it went back to 60fps..
