    Since you have already run them, why not post up a link to them, your benches? I've not tested these yet but, I doubt I'll see much. I'm on the hot fix already.

    Yup, I notice good colours with these, and the RGB on my mouse pad is much sharper, definitely keepers!

    Don't question it, colors simply look better now.
    See! Exactly!

    I just started playing the Division 2 and with DX12 was randomly crashing every few minutes or hours. So I went with DX11 and seems stable

    I wonder if these drivers improve DX12 stability (GTX 1080 here)

    Game filters and instant replay both no longer work with Final Fantasy XIV Online. Can this be fixed by the driver team?

    the division 2's direct3d 12 renderer is poorly made and broken

    I'm not questioning you trying to troll me, I think it is funny you think about me in real life and were so upset days later that you're doing it in an entirely different thread. You should not let folks on the net bother you that much.
    Looks like it went right over your head again. Oh well.

    How odd that for me, I get much smoother frame rates and higher average frame rates using DX12 vs DX11.
    I would say you have that exactly backwards. Division 2's DX12 is the best I have used when there is a option to use both in games. Another oddity in this game is I get higher and smoother FPS running with reduced latency enabled in the game menu which is counter intuitive.

    I am also running the same overclock and undervolt I run on every other game.

    because when games have large expansions or season updates it can have engine tweaks/changes and drivers have to be updated for those changes. Be it SLI, DX12, Vulkan, Gsync a whole number of things can be affected or changed.

    Dx12 in division 2 is much smoother and higher overall fps for me too. But it still CTD now and then on dx12 so I use dx11 to avoid crashes

    The only crashes I've had are related to their network. Could be that DX12 is slightly less stable. His assertion was the driver was absolutely broken and unusable in DX12 on Division 2 which is false.
    However I would agree that given how long some of the missions are in Division 2 and a crash can blow up and hour or more of your time.... I can see using DX11 over 12 if you have stability issues.

    I'm not even talking to you. I didn't quote you or mention anyone. It's not all about you. The image quality is better, get over it buddy!

    Unfortunately DX12 IS very unstable and has been since release. They have yet to address this. DX11 never crashes. DX12 you can be sure will crash every session if you play more than a couple of hours. I play Div 2 a lot with mates and they all have the same experience and completely different rigs
    Highly doubtful. But I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt. Post us some screenshots proving this is the case or we are calling bs
    You're partly correct. Higher fps in DX12 but unstable.
