    Nvidia needs to update its site better. These drivers do show up on Nvidia.com when selecting Fermi GPU, so I gave them a shot, but they indeed won't install on Fermi systems.

    the geforce site is a nightmare for caches, use the nvidia.co.uk site, select English(UK) and 1080 on the downloads page, win10 and win7/8.x are there.

    Does this driver fix the issue with having black pixel blocks in Original Sin 2 when having dynamic shadows enabled? The last drivers I tried had this problem.

    They just came up on nvidia driver section for all supported video cards. Many things changed and lots of stuff in the change log here. I'm going to test them :D

    So anyone checked how FC5 perform with this? (and i dont care about the benchmark which i think is just a ubisoft scam compare to how the actual game run)

    Performance about the same, i use v-sync off in game and set fast sync and fxaa on in the driver, however it does feel a bit smoother but maybe a placebo there

    good thing is it didnt crash like it did with previous drivers for me after about half an hour of gameplay

    *EDIT* just read the fix has been implemented for my 1060, perhaps my numerous reports helped lol

    GPU-Z reports beta digital signature for these drivers. Don't be worried though its false alarm because DXDIAG reports WHQL so its ok. Waiting for a newer GPU-Z version..! Let's start testing with FC5 :D
