    Waiting for tests of these ones, 442.59 is so smooth in games!

    then unless you need the certain fixes this driver provides, leave well enough alone. GPU drivers are like BIOS updates, unless you need the certain things they fix, then leave well enough alone if you are currently happy with your performance. Least thats my opinion.

    I try new drivers, regularly.
    I dont give a stuff about Red Dead Rododendrum and I don't care if it works or not, so I'd like to distance myself from Koul 220's remarks, which are as relevant as t"ts on a bull....

    I talked a lot before about 442 drivers, and now its covid19 time no more energy to waste, but you can do some benches and you'll see again by yourself.

    both are new drivers, but 442.77 is beta vulkan driver, and 442.74 is standard whql.

    The Vulkan 442.77 based on an older branch that doesn´t contain the Fixes in the Official Drivers.

    [Doom Eternal]: The game frame rate drops when using the Steam in-game FPS counter. [200593988] This issue also occurs with non-NVIDIA graphics hardware.

    Definitely.

    Thats not a bug, @Unwinder has explained what the heck is going on there countless times, but it sinks in to nobodies head, its the same reason he disabled the Overlay for DooM 2016 on Radeons back in the day to stop the foolish radeon users claiming he was nerfing their cards. PS: Geforce started using the same render queue and had to have it disabled too because it reduced FPS.

    But some people do! then they think that means there game will suffer too, then we have people that dont know what margin of error is, then we have people that like to pick things apart and go on about it, dont forget about the "i'm" right and "everyone" else is wrong even when "everyone" else know said person is wrong... Ignore them or better yet use the lovely ignore function we got. since a certain other forums closed the ignore function has had more use then usual atlest for me.


    As for the 442.74

    I sticking with the 442.58 There is nothing wrong with them all my game play as they should be if not better. no reason for to change them. They fixed the supposed "security" flaw from the drivers I was using and it has the framelimiter in the nvcp.
