    Check your config m8 you should be using opengl or vulkan m8 ;) I'm using opengl just fine.
    Pascal or Maxwell, win 1709 or 1803? 1607 wddm 2.1 here ;)

    @jdc2389 what's wrong with you man,i just told you that MPV is working JUST FINE....NO....PROBLEMS !!!! And just FYI d3d11 has much better hardware acceleration than OpenGL and Vulkan at the moment (at the moment,being present time,can't say what would happened in the future)so thanks but no thanks.

    P.S. Vulkan doesn't even provide codecs support last time i checked,not at least with MKV/H.264 files which are the most popular.So what would be the point of using it,you literally running it off your CPU instead of GPU?

    Pascal 1709. But try checking various output modes for mpv("--vo=gpu"; "--gpu-api=d3d11/vulkan/opengl"; "--gpu-context=d3d11/vulkan/opengl"; etc.).

    Vulkan isn't broken it was a misconfiguration in mpv "gpu-context=win" broke d3d11 and vulkan and left opengl working. Apologies, for Maxwell at least on 1607 397.40 is slightly better but I don't suffer from any wddm 2.3 bugs I'm on 2.1

    This driver has very inconsistent stability in Firestrike and stutter in Watch Dogs 2 with vsync off.
    Uninstalled audio drivers down to basic M$ driver and FS was still freezing up on test 2
    Re-installed 391.35 and it passed from the first reboot.
    Win10 Pro x64 16299.402 - FCU 1709.

    Edit: It just passed again, first time all day I've been able to get successful back to back runs.

    Are you sure about HDMI 2.0b cause mine only does a few months ago chroma 4.2.0 over hdmi with 144p 144hz.

    exact same thing happened at exact time you mentioned to me as well. i'm on 391.35 though and never had any crashes on any games for 3 years since my system/OC stable. guessing its the game's fault.

    edit: it was my first bf1 crash few days ago and it didnt happen again.

    Okay, well the video problems with MPC are back again even after updates and cleaning. It basically says error with madvr or something and cuts the driver then stalls. I tried looking through the settings, but I have to do a full reset to get proper video back. It seems like MPC completely kills my video rendering capabilities even on youtube. Really strange.

    Never had anything quite this bad, but we'll have to see here. I'll just wait for another driver and maybe consider fully uninstalling everything with Nvidia.

    I got bsod's with AC:O (0x00000124) and I'm on 1607. I'm still testing with reducing my OC to my last known good configuration but if that also fails, I'll roll back to the previous driver.

    Not for now, although benchmark score for FFXV is rather low (5500+ in Full HD - max settings)
    Does it BSOD randomly even when surfing or only when gaming?

    It's not the games fault. It's these terrible drivers.. On a number of systems the driver just crap the bed after Windows has some uptime and it's as if there isn't a card installed. Rebooting fixes it temporarily until the drivers crap the bed again.

    Agree 100%. They need to at least test it before they release it. They have all the time in the world for testing after all. Really. They do.

    Definitely something been brewing in these drivers that is bad. But I expected this because of the cutting out of certain features. I am sure they are reorganizing some things and planning for new cards too. I hope the next driver is better.

    @Khronikos This driver is working without any issue. I'm still using v1709 (16299.402) + 471 MB

    Later will try to use the 473 MB & upgrade v1803. The new card is around the corner.

    471 MB + v1803 = No issue.
    473 MB + v1803 = No issue.

    Overall gaming experience is smooth & if clean install, I guess will be even smoother.

    @HeavyHemi Nope, still exists with 3 selections.

    You would need HDMI 2.0b on both the GPU HDMI port and the port on your monitor/TV. Also the latest 1803 Windows update that is getting released this week has improved HDR support. If that's what you have, try 120hz rather than 144hz if that frequency is supported. You would also need a HDMI cable that supports HDMI 2.0b but they're around £30.

    My monitor has a HDMI 2.0b port but as the GTX 980ti only has a HDMI 2.0 port, my best HDR set up is RGB Full 8bit with dithering @ 1440p 120hz. I'm holding off on upgrading my graphics card as I feel the 1080ti cost is extortionate, and the 1080 is only around 20% faster than 980ti. So I'm waiting for the next series of cards.
