    It's intersting because I loose 200 points in Timespy on the GPU score consistantly. I roll back and I gain my 200 points.

    They seem hit and miss looking at the comments. Ah well hopefully it wont be long till the next update

    Totally understand the behavior.
    Before this driver average score range was 17270-17310
    After this driver I got my highest ever 17485
    After few shutdowns it was 17413
    Installed MS security patch (.192) last night now I'm at 17403

    The driver definitely has improvements but I agree with some others it's kind of sporadic.Haven't come across issues with gaming, but browsing the Operating System Forum here at G3D last night, my screen flashed and half the page disappeared until a refresh.
    Not sure if it was a down clocking bug as I loaded up FireFox right after benching.
    I'm always testing my rig (paranoia, something's wrong with my rig somewhere even if I'm not getting any visible issues, I have a condition, anyway)
    I'll post bench results tonight as system's shut down most of today, should be interesting.

    Update on stuttering issue ive encountered previously.

    Before driver update i installed new bios to fix spectre. installed intel chipset Version 10.1.1.45 and intel lan driver Version 22.9.16.0 from asus site.

    after encountering stuttering, i installed a current chipset version from intel site which is older than asus x.x.x.42, and rolled back lan driver to march version. rolled back to 388 from control panel

    stuttering was now gone. i then reinstalled 390 and seems no stuttering as before.

    so there had to have been a conflict there somewhere either with that chipset or lan driver? leaning towards chipset

    Anyone with HDR TV can play HDR Games with 2560x1440 resolution ? because for me LG OLED TV every resolution other than 1080p/4K doesn't work with HDR enabled. HDR is just disabled when using any other resolution. anyone know how to fix this ?

    Chipset has no drivers in it. I dont understand people why insist to install them.

    OS level mitigations are disabled using VMWare solution, because the microcode is not detected when OS kernel boots. So you should not have a performance difference because mitigations are not in place.

    yea i spoke to soon. stutter is still there ingame in pubg. wasnt that evident on spawn island, but when more and more textures and people nearby, it starts to stutter when looking around

    Chipset has plenty of device drivers on it. It's just that it usually doesn't make any difference whether you use the Windows default ones or install them from chipset manufacturer.

    negative. i rolled back to 388.13 and stuttering when looking around is gone. its worse with filters applied as well. i can run reshade with no stutter or without noticable performance issues on 7700k with 1080ti with 3400mhz ram

    So far so good, performance looks like it's sticking.Will continue monitoring to know for sure.

    when i have a slightly unstable overclock performance slowly gets worse, happens with any driver, only a reboot fixes it (restarting driver doesnt help)

    ok i finally isolated it.

    it was the latest geforce overlay that is causing the stutter. 3.12

    filter on or off, replays on or off, instant replay on or off.

    uninstalled it completely (not just turned it off) and it's now stutter free

    Unfortunately that's how it is with HDR on the LG range. Only way around it is if the game supports it is use internal resolutions scaling. So set the game display res to 4k and reduce internal render scaling to 50% for 1440p for example.

    Thankfully most games that support hdr support this.

    Also a little tip, if you got a 6 series LG make sure you re select the input after launching a hdr game or you will get banding. If the tv re-initilizes hdr after adjusting brightness controls in game repeat the process (re7 does this for example).

    On a side note I definitely seen worse performance on some games on my 4790k and 1080ti since the security patch roll out. Star wars BF2 is the worse offender. But I also have some games that appear to run a bit better too so I'm confused lol.

    With regards to the driver, it's been okay so far. Only bug I found is the HDMI sound is re-enabled on reboot.

    "390.65, that includes a security patch for one of three recently disclosed chip vulnerabilities that are collectively known as Spectre and Meltdown".
    All problems because of a patch and the situation will continue to available now. Worst driver ever.

    I've opted out on the bios update for my motherboard. It seems very buggy and absolutely kills performance. I'm overclocked to 4.6ghz and performance dropped to worse than it was on stock. I don't think it's because of the microcode. I'm using a 6600k and a Asus z170a.

    The microcode is the bios update - intel releases microcode updates to OEMs and they include them in BIOS updates, to be applied during POST. They're not permanent, the microcode is applied each time the machine is turned on. Under Linux you can do this in software with the kernel itself during runtime (and so, can optionally load it without updating the BIOS, or not load the microcode at all).

    Can confirm this issue after more hours on PUBG, there's lag spikes (not net, graphic stutter) that occur spontaneously (only on Erangel I believe) and just go away. Going to roll back to test if it disappears.

    EDIT:

    Rolled back to previous driver and issue seems to be resolved, but only tested with 2 games (they were long games though, top 5 in both). To be absolutely sure, we'll probably need to test much more than just 2 games.

    Ye the problem with HDR that I have the C6 series and I wanted to play HDR + 3D super depth reshade , doing so internal resolution scaling disables the 3D depth buffer making 3D absolute in the game.... so I am STUCK ....................... Crappy 1080p resolution or 4K 15-30 Fps ...... wtff

    Also I have AMD 1950x , so I won't see performance reduction would I ?

    For example my friend AMD Vega card can do 2560x1440 properly . it just bloody NVidia who can't.

    After some more testing I came to conclusion that the driver produce easily noticeable regular stutter after each display mode (e.g. resolution) change. This stutter is easily noticeable in any browser, when using smooth scrolling or watching a YouTube video. It's also happening in pretty much any game running on any API. Restarting Windows fixes the stutter but it's a bit too heavy of a fix. Will probably downgrade to 388.xx till the next release.

    Stutter looks like this (see frametime graph):

    Two hitches followed by a longer pause and then two hitches again. It repeats until the OS is rebooted.
