    Setting the game to a custom resolution of 3840x2159 completely fixed all 4k vsync related issues for me.

    Never had anything like it. You don't use DDU do you?

    Give me a key to redeem the game.

    The color is so much more vibrant & FIFA 18 also a lot smoother.

    "New Features Due to popular demand, the NV Tray has been added back in this release."

    Totally pointless to have it back, but hey nice for those who wanted it.

    I swear, considering the amount of times that has been said, by now all games should run so smooth there wouldn't even be a word nor description to define the smoothness in games.

    Welcome to the world. Where everyone only has concern for their own well-being. In this case, every user with issues will report how smooth their machine is, not caring to take into account the millions of machines that have been unaffected. Their machine wasn't smooth so obviously that means everyone else's follows suit. Lol.

    And I agree, the amount of times I've seen this stupid comment is quite annoying. Apparently every game on PC runs butter smooth on 144hz setups in 4K.

    In game shortcut, go into compatibility tab, and change/play with scalling options.
    I don't remember which one - coz im using polish version of windows.
    But thats solving my issues, with same problem.
    I'm suspicious about Fall Creators Update.

    Some drivers are more, from what I saw over these years, its either vram latency tweaks or system ram/cpu optimizations for faster swap data, this sometimes breaks few unstable systems, and those drivers that have it more aggressive can stutter (or not look smooth).

    I now noticed similar by rooted android phone, if you change main scheduler it suddenly becomes all smooth /fluid, try another and it has lag spikes and stutter scrolling or lags by switching apps..

    Manually chosen 10 bit output color depth on DisplayPort is still reverting to 8 bit after OS reboot on these.

    Noticed a performance increase with these drivers in Wolfenstein 2. I hope Machine Games get their act together and re-enable asynchronous compute in the game, as it was never a source of instability; at least not for me.

    Personal best score with theese drivers in 3d mark time spy, first time over 15000 pts. No game tested at now. Hope wolf2 4k resolution issue is solved with this release. Both game updates never worked correctly here.

    It will be funny if NV's driver dev team will be able to close the gap _again_ despite id's best efforts to sink their h/w.

    G-sync window mode problem is back in Destiny 2 and stuttering with these drivers that were fixed in 388.31 and a driver with gave smooth gameplay in a variety of games. These drivers are a no go for me. I'm reverting back.

    Edit - Seems like I had to use DDU in safe mode to get this driver to behave nicely. D2 problems are once again resolved.

    Like what? Downsized windows? Do you have 4K screen?

    Yeah it would be. No matter how much I love id software and their games this AMD deal is a bit shady. I played Wolfenstein on several drivers at 1440p (all settings maxed apart from uber settings) and my system had zero performance issues. Since then they have disabled async for Nvidia along with several performance drivers for vega( which is basically console optimized code). It's bullshit really.

    No but my screen is larger than 1080p and I never had any downsized windows because of new driver installation.

    All games feel smoother now. My coffee tastes better too. Also, I don't get constipated anymore and my hemorrhoids are gone.
