    This driver made my GTX1060 OC very unstable.
    In my laptop I had almost stable 1872MHz on core with drops to 1860 and +750MHz on memory (I almost find stable +800mhz on memory but i didnt had time to test it longer and i changed the driver) with 388.71 driver. undervolteted to 0.875 with temps not further than 73/74 C and after 390.65 The best I can do is 1810/1797 on core and +700mhz on memory undervolted to 0.85/0.862 ( didnt have time to check which is more stable) but also my temps are now around 76/77C.
    I have also noticed that my i7 7700hq undervolted -160 on cores and -100 on iGPU is also hoter under all cores running mayby because od higer gpu temp. Now is hitting 79/82C before it was maxing to 76/77

    Mott, I also think that this driver makes gpu to use higher voltage which couse problem with OC and make higher temps and artifacting

    VERY BAD DRIVER FOR OC

    Btw
    I now have Kryonaut 12.5 W/mK paste on cpu and gpu and minuspads on memmory and Power sections. what do you think about changing paste to phobya nanogrease Extreme 16W/mK and changing thermalpads to Gelid GP Extreme which are 12W/mK

    390.65 doesnt remember settings in nvidia panel resolution/colour (always at windows startup is set an rgb not ycbcr that i selected earlier), desktop settings and scaling going to default too at windows start. First driver in years that i uninstalled in the day when was installed :D. Windows 8.1 x64.

    Maybe this is why Rise of the tomb raider was artifacting for me on dx12. I might test again without an OC but overall I really want to skip these drivers.

    I don't know if it was the drivers or a patch, but asynchronous compute is now turned back on in Wolfenstein 2. Excellent drivers though as usual, no stability or performance issues here.

    Make sure your sound card is selected as your default device in windows, under the sound options.

    HDMI sound bug for me also.
    Frustrating issue cause after every reboot I have to disable HDMI sound on one of the two TVs I have attached to my gpu.

    Stability and performance are ok.

    Hi, with this driver VSYNC Adaptative don't work in Ghost Recon Wildlands, all fu**ing time tearing, in the previous driver works perfect.

    Windows 7 x64 with Xeon X5670 @ 4.4 GHz and EVGA FTW GTX 1070

    Thanks for your time, I hope this trouble can be fixed.

    Hi Carfax ,

    already done ;) and it seems I m not alone with this bug : I think it s a problem in 390.65.
    actually , only solution for me is too disable the nvidia sound card in control panel

    but ,stability and perf it s ok for me too , absolutely no problem.

    drivers are unstable for me. Introduces blank/black screen at login, seems to forget settings, causes reboots, and seems to introduce stuttering in some games. reverting to prior driver fixed everything.

    I also noticed some games/ apps take longer to launch with this driver.

    There is a lot of underlying monkey work on this driver as it also creates new directories that were not there and a few files I haven't seen before.


    Regardless, for me, its a skip this one conclusion

    Did nothing to alleviate the driver crashes I've had ever since the introduction of 384.xx. Had 2 crashes within 15min of each other whilst playing Phase Shift today.

    Quite obviously not a driver issue if you're having it over three different branches.

    I use the curve overclocking to undervolt and overclock my GTX 1080 on my laptop and the old curve still works fine. Granted, the overclock isn't all that high as it's my laptop's temperature/performance sweet spot (solid 1873MHz core clock), but I mainly undervolt the thing to keep load temperatures as low as possible due to it being a laptop. Just like previous drivers it's still rock stable, though, and doesn't fluctuate (I've also set Prefer Maximum Performance in Nvidia Inspector, though). Perhaps only the "Optimal" or "Adaptive" performance settings are affected.
    I did use the latest version of DDU before installing the new driver, though, and removed all the bloaty components like GeForce Experience, etc. from the driver package before installation, so that may also affect it.

    I don't overclock my Titan X (Pascal) desktop via curve, so I can't comment on that. My regular +210/2100MHz overclock with +0 core voltage is still rock stable, though.

    The crashes begun at the exact same time as everyone started having Firefox crashes (which still happen, but are rare). I've tried just about everything short of a Windows reinstall (including hardware stability testing, and running everything at stock). At this point I have no reason to think it's anything but an unresolved driver issue.

    Unrelated. Firefox crashes are caused by Firefox renderer. If you're having driver crashes in a lot of different games then it's most likely a h/w issue.

    I haven't come across any concrete evidence that it's a Firefox issue, only that logic was added to recover more gracefully from the driver crashes. Do you have a source to support that claim?

    No, the only applications I experience crashes in are Phase Shift (frequent), Firefox (rare, maybe 2-3 times over the past 3-4 months), GTA V (once, though this one may have been a game bug).
    Everything else runs without issue.

    Application was crashing the user part of the driver - it's an application issue.

    This logic was added back in Vista, Firefox just made use of it finally.

    Then it's most likely an issue with these applications. Driver crash in some specific application is usually this application's issue.

    Since you card seems to be factory overclocked ("superclocked"), try downclocking it to Nvidia reference clocks and see if the crashes still happen. If they don't, then perhaps that factory overclock has just become unstable, in which case you should probably contact EVGA to replace your card under warranty (if you still are in your warranty period) or run the card at reference clocks.
    I myself had two EVGA factory overclocked video cards that became unstable at their factory overclocks after a couple of years each (I also had another one that remained stable at them) and going back to Nvidia reference clocks solved it for me, which is why I'm suggesting to try this route.
    You could also try to turn off any overclocks on other components if you have any applied and see if it helps in case any other overclock may have become unstable over time.

    If it doesn't help, either there coiuld be a "more serious" hardware issue or it's simply a software issue, the latter being more likely.
