    Same firestrike performance as previous driver on this one.

    But I noticed a much smoother experience in UT4, which is all important for me.
    Seems like a good driver all around.

    My issue with displayport seems to be fixed. It's a festivus miracle!

    The issue was when turning off my displayport display and back on,
    Windows would recognize it as a new device being plugged in. This was
    especially annoying with multiple displays. It was like plugging in a USB flash drive.

    Thanks for the fix Nvidia, this was one of the most noticeable issues I had with newer drivers.
    I would of had to go back to 350.12 WHQL for the last time the fix was in place.

    All else seems to be working fine, will report back if anything arises.

    Another undocumented Windows 10 fix.

    Many users still don't understand nVidia made their drivers REALLY compatibile with Windows 10 since just some months.
    All previous serious issues and frequent crashes reported by users and magically disappeared (at least most of them) were caused by Windows 7 driver hacked for Windows 10 and "sold" by nVidia as Windows 10 drivers, which they were not at all.

    That's the reason behind these frequent "Game Ready" without a detailed changelog releases... They simply lied for months and are just now releasing Windows 10 specific drivers with full WDDM 2.0 (and DX12 support). They were late at that.
    Enjoy the fact they rewrote them for Windows 10, finally.

    Installed last night.

    No issues to report, drivers feel fast and the 3 games I played last night played smoothly. BF4, Overwatch and the vanishing of Ethan Carter. Will try some more games when I get back to my PC tonight.

    Single monitor setup, Widows 10, rig shown on left.

    Any proof to back up these claims?

    Other than the recent stub error and other non-gaming issues caused by the MFAA/Global Settings bug in the v368.xx drivers and a few broken games, e.g. The Crew, when switching driver branches which is par for the course with NVIDIA, I have not had any major issues with driver stability since installing Windows 10 last July. I am not saying that they are near-perfect but the drivers seem no better and no worst than the Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 ones I had previously been using.

    Of course, I only use one display and do not use GSYNC, SLI, SHIELD, ShadowPlay, 3D Vision, NVIDIA HD Audio or VR which minimises the chances of me experiencing issues. The more driver components/hardware you have to run is obviously going to increase your chances of encountering issues. That's just the nature of the PC platform where billions of combinations of hardware and software exist and where no PC is the same as any other.

    Thanks for the DDU suggestion - new 1070 installed and running beautfiully, fully stable all evening, tested it with Rocket League (4K), Tomb Raider (2560x1600), R6 Siege (4K) and Project Cars (4K), all maxed out, no issues to report with the new card or these latest drivers on Win10 64-bit :)

    Yeah I've seen this thread, only that I did have flickering everywhere besides the menu, on the campaign map too.

    So it's not really the problem I was facing, where as soon as I ran TWWH with SLI enabled, I got a flickering across the whole screen with all different settings and resolutions just on the campaign map, loading a savegame and not doing more. It was way less on minimal settings, yet it was there and visible. I hope they've fixed it, because if not I don't see any reason to keep this driver over .22 (performance gains for Maxwell are probably marginal anyway now that Pascal is out).

    This driver has the same problem in Armored Warfare as the previous 368.xx driver.
    When releasing a smoke grenade, the smoke is invisible, unless you go into sniper mode, then you can see the smoke. 365.xx renders the smoke without any issues.

    Where did that come from, I would like to see where that is documented, so Hexaae if you wouldn't mind provide the source of that information

    rFactor 2 says no dx9.0.c video card adapter found. This is in 64bit mode, 32bit runs but is pony. 368.39 runs but crashes to desktop on launch or randomly in game. Sucks as I've just changed to a GTX 1080. Also pCars randomly crashes but not as often. Assetto Corsa runs but I get the same fps as my old 980ti which kinda sucks. Thanks.

    hello @pato,

    i was wondering could you make a comparison between this latest driver and 365.19, please? i'm curious about results from your tests.

    thanks in advance ;)
