    @ManuelG These drivers fixed the weird G-Sync issue in Destiny 2 for me and the game does feel smoother.
    As for the huge % fps increase, I can't say that I am seeing any difference, I've maxd the game at too at my native resolution 1440p/1080ti.

    Thanks

    Any changes in Wolfenstein 2 performance?

    After some testing, this driver indeed fix all Stutter issues for me, everything is much smoother. Also fixed weird artifacts I had when switching from desktop to fullscreen game. Those occurred during transition process.

    Thank you, great stuff!

    Most likely the typical lose of performance marketing that Nvidia likes to use. "OMG...my GPU no longer competes! I need to upgrade..." Thank fully AMD has provided mid level competition or Nvidia may have continued their attack on their fan base i.e. 600 series, 700 series, 900 series unexplained performance loses when the next gen arrives.

    Are you suggesting it was just the natural progression of performance lose? AMD seemed to miss out on degradation over those generations...which most reviewer/benchmarkers would use as a constant as the 780ti or 970 would gradually lose performance after new generation drivers.

    Another Possibility would be...I fall for a good conspiracy!

    I'm not suggesting anything, I'm just straight saying that "600 series, 700 series, 900 series unexplained performance loses" never happened. It's an Internet myth.

    Care to provide even one example of such performance loss which wasn't due to a bug which was fixed later?

    Except AMD cards from RX 5XX series and VEGA cards had that performance since day one Destiny 2 was launced. Considering Destiny 2 is NVidia sponsored title it's really funny that even VEGA 56 is faster than GTX 1080 in 1440p and 2160p. A bit of a fail and shame on NVidia's side if you ask me. If Destiny 2 was AMD sponsored title I would understand but this is just ridiculous from NVidia's side to allow to be a good chunk outperformed by AMD's cards from same performance segment. It took them 3 weeks to catch up with AMD cards/drivers in Destiny 2, it should be done on day one game was launched.

    Edit
    But as someone said: better late than never...

    There's still some regular "ticking" on frametime graph when fps is really high but I guess that it doesn't matter at such numbers anyway:

    I agree, they've definitely dropped the ball on Destiny 2 launch support as they both let AMD win in launch benchmarks despite it being TWIMTBP game and managed to provide huge performance gains later meaning that this was a s/w issue all along.

    I wish that Hilbert did Destiny 2 bechmarks with 290X 4GB cards or at least 390X 8GB, my bet is they would be on at least GTX 980 level in 1080p and good chunk faster in 1440p and 2160p compared to GTX 980. I remember the times when both GTX 780 and 290X were still freshly released cards: GTX 780 was significantly faster compared to 290X. Few years later 290/290X/390/390X are outperforming even 780Ti in 1080p, in 1440p and 2160p performance difference is just ridiculously higher on AMDs favour.

    Stuttering definitely gone with this driver, previous driver stuttered quite noticeably in Dirt Rally benchmark - I do have power monitoring tools open (HWInfo & GPUz). Smooth performance in 3DMark Firestrike, and game benchmarks: Batman Arkham Knight, F1 2015, Dirt Rally.

    A new driver from nVidia that doesn't stutter in PUBG :D:D:D
    A new driver where you can actually turn up the settings in PUBG and it still runs smooth :D:D:D:D

    I can vividly remember each Mass Effect on PS3/360, for PC on the same engine, using the same assets, running worse with each sequel, yet running fine on aging console hardware. It's not a myth. It's fact. The problem is, I don't think it's a malicious as thought. It just becomes apparent that nVidia focuses it's driver support only on it's current offerings. Which creates issues for legacy hardware, not limited to, but including, unjustifiable, crappy performance due to lack of support. I understand it from a business perspective. But they should come out with a public policy on it. "We stop support after 3 years". Let it become a rule, then the rumors are put to rest, the moaning is quieted down and the internet can find something new to bitch about.

    Stuttering seems to be gone, as for destiny 2 definitely get a performance improvement especially at 1440p & 4k (w/ equivalent ingame res scale) but if I look down the sight I get a 10 fps frame drop.

    Guessing this is to do with DoF...

    Your vivid memory is just plain wrong, ME2 and 3 ran way better than ME1, and all of them ran considerably better on PC than on PS3/360 (sub-30 fps, bleh). I'm saying this as someone who played ME on all platforms and beaten the games more than a dozen of times. So yes, that's another myth right there.

    There are no performance degradation of old hardware on newer drivers. This isn't true even for 600/700 series, let alone 900 one.
    Newer games - which is what this is actually about; games which are made now running on old hardware - can be slower on older h/w than on the current h/w for a multitude of reasons, and NV's driver support is probably somewhere at the end of that list.

    Why would they say something like that if it's not true at all?

    I'm glad to see someone else remembers this as well. Most only remember what relevant to their interests.
