    So far so good, this driver is a keeper.

    Micro-stutter issue resolved.

    Micro stutter resolved for oculus rift headsets?

    Tested during one hour (BF1, DOOM and COD WWII).

    bugs I had with 338.13 seem to have disappeared (alt-tab working very bad in games, black screen when opening certain games, GTX 1080 Ti remaning at stock clocks during games even if it was overclocked).

    So, good news ! :)

    To be confirmed.

    Uninstalled previous drivers with DDU and just installed these 388.31 without any issues, now to test the games is the question.

    Sadly, I still have occasional black screen while alt-tab to games since fall creator. Repeat alt-tab solve the issue. This maybe have nothing to do with nvidia driver. It seems fixed in soon to come windows 10 build.

    SLI with Battlefront 2 is not working for me... working for anyone else?

    same here higher fps with one card

    Not working for me either... but am pulling 200% resolution at 1080 no problem... seems like it's a bit better for a single card. Haven't tried anything higher yet.

    Not fixed indeed. Bugs not just with OpenGL and Vulkan. GTA 5 crashing Nvidia driver unrecoverably when using full screen windowed mode with DX11 as well.

    Man that is just unfair! Name one conspiracy theorist that has a sound and well stated argument that is supported by proven facts...it wouldn't be a theory then. As far as my graph, I was hoping you would play along and provide another yet different benchmark for the game, showing the same results.

    I would be hard pressed to find any material supporting a span of 4 generations of cards. No one in this industry would waste their time documenting 4-6 year old hardware While keeping a running benchmark on games from 2011. With that said, poor guys that cant afford new hardware and able to take direct concern, will make posts regarding such a thing. The reason this theory is discussed, is simply because of the parallel timing with new hardware releases. "Why the hell did I lose FPS and gain stutter in Far Cry 4 on my GTX780!!!?!!"....Hey its new hardware!

    Yes, as you and others said, it could be bugs or an over sight in the driver optimization for older hardware. Sure they will fix it after they allocate time away from the new generation of bugs. Also, some people need to make up reasons to buy new parts...Is there a better excuse then my shits old and is acting funky?

    I like how serious you are...any chance you know a good joke you want to share?

    I just gave you two links to sites which did just that. And these are just what I've remembered right away, there were more, and none of such reviews have proven that there's any performance degradation of older NV cards on newer drivers. Bugs sometimes, sure, they happen on all cards though, not just older ones.

    Oh, so all of this was a joke then?

    It's just a bit tiresome to have the same discussion over and over again with the other side again not providing anything but the conspiracy theories.

    In fact I feel that this should've long switched over to AMD side by now, with how their Fury cards seem to be suffering in each second modern release these days, or how 570 is a lot faster than 480 suddenly in places.

    You did not just give me two links that shared results over the course of 4-6 years on aged hardware. You provided links that showed the progression of 1 year in driver releases...hardly what I would call evidence to either of our views.

    Don't get me wrong...I am quite serious about the unethical choices of all corporate industries. You can no longer be a fan of a company but, a wise consumer. When you have investors of publicly traded companies foaming at the mouth for profits...Executives find ways to make that happen. Computer hardware is certainly not the only example of consumer manipulation. Any industry that fears a lull in sales will try and boost the appeal. You cant blame them but, the days of a loyal customer went out the window with curtsy and respect on the internet.

    I didn't have any issues with the previous drivers, installed these straight over them and the performance seems slightly better although it might be placebo. Either way they are great as usual for me and all my games are playing smoothly without any weirdness which is great. Another fantastic driver for us Maxwell owners. I always do the install that includes only 4 folders, use DDU between branch versions, don't use any gpu monitoring programs as all my custom stuff (clocks, voltage, fan profile) has been hard modded into the BIOS and never seem to have any of the problems that get complained about on here. Couldn't be happier with this GPU and the greater majority of drivers that nVidia delivers.

    I have been played Prey, Dying Light, Warframe, and Rocket League with this driver set and all four run like butter. Will report back if anything of interest pops up as I continue playing these games and others. Glad to hear a lot of people have had their stuttering fixed with this driver as that must have been really annoying.

    I hope this driver fix stuttering problem for me. Nvidia hardware is great and at least a generation ahead of the competition but their driver is lagging behind AMD in recent years. Nvidia should really rethink about their driver team management.

    Crash for one time is reasonably common.
