    Same issue with AMD cards so i am guessing a engine limitation, not optimised well.

    It would be nice if the nvidia driver package deletes itself from c drive lol, gigas and gigas of wasted space from only two driver sets, folder even protects itself claiming it´s only using like 3mb of space but it´s not XD.

    Right click >> delete. If you check, all the folders inside the driver directories are empty.

    According to GE logs ability to clean up installation directory was added in 3.9.0. Don't know where, though.

    I just deleted 385 (wanted to try pc2 on 387.98 but it is really sluggish). Folder was claiming 712kb of size but once in the recycler it stated it´s real size, a bit over 1gb.

    Ps.- I will never use Geforce experience but thanks anyway.

    Yes, they work perfectly fine with that game as do the v387.92 WHQL drivers (since the hotfix changes are not specific to that game anyway).

    Divers are highly unstable in SLI configuration
    More so than any driver to date
    reverted back to 385.69

    also
    drivers crash TitanFall2, Talos Principle (dx11), Shadwen, Dying Light, crash occurs within seconds. Crash occurs later in We happy few, when using the sli profile it came with.
    If I put in my own sli profile in we happy few using the 385.69, I get 93% utilization and rock steady performance/ When I use the 387 profile it only uses one card and crashes.
    (same with Echo)
    (385.69 no problem)

    Full crashes on game start (if SLI enabled) occurs in Halo CE, Doom, UT3, Soma, Andromeda, Resident Evil, Dishonored 2, Bioshock infinite
    (385.69 no problem)

    Additional observation: on games that don't crash - the load time before the screen refreshes and game starts - takes 3-12 seconds longer.


    Situation where crash occurs outside of above listed parameters (reproducible on two of my PCs):
    When Fast is selected in the v synch option
    When On (smooth) is selected in v synch
    When 10 bit (vs 8 bit) is enabled for monitor


    Driver seems ok if setting is left to "Application controlled" for v synch
    Driver seems ok if setting is left to 8 bit vs 10bit for monitor
    Driver seems ok if you don't plat any games at all


    On install, the 387 hard locks/blanks screen and doesn't come back after it finds the cards (other driver installs cause a few screen on off but within seconds come back to normal)
    The 387 cause a blank that does not return, reboot required, remoting in to see what's going on shows an error under application in event viewer and I have to do a remote restart.

    returning to 385.69 and custom profiles resolved issues and seems normal again.
    Also, even with ddu, this driver leaves a whole bunch of stuff everywhere in registry and some files in the program directory and program data that all had to be manually purged.

    returning to 385.69 and custom profiles resolved issues and seems normal again.
    my overall impression is that this driver has some much deeper included monkey work in it

    reverting (and cleaning the driver off the system manually) to 385.69 seems to solve the problem. 385.12, 385.41 and 385.69 did not manifest any of these issues. SLI profiles seem to work fine for all those and stability was not an issue.


    it could be that this driver (387) is fine with generic pc configurations, but in my situation its very unstable. I suspect they have made considerable changes, more than just some game profiles

    @disq It's normal for non WHQL/Beta/Hotfix drivers...

    I respect that and I'm glad for you

    I was just trying to provide feedback on the 387 driver
    but from your signature I don't see you're running SLI, ----in most of my issues is when SLI is enabled or available

    my build is somewhat more complicated but runs fine on 385.69:

    Supermicro X10DRG-Q (ver 1.10. bios 3.0)
    2x (dual) E5-2699a v4 (44 cores/ 88HT) (2.4 to 3.7ghz turbo)
    1TB ram DDR4 ecc reg
    (QUAD SLI) 4 Titan Xp (fully enabled)
    2x NVMe 960Pro pcie 3.0 (os drives)
    amfeltec plx nvme
    10x 850Pro SSD RAID (apps drives)
    4k monitor (and *8k)
    Digital power supply 1600w
    Windows Server 2012 R2 Data Center

    Sure. But considering that SLI is a waste of money for some years now, with constant issues and about half of games not supporting it at all - I don't see how this driver is an issue really.

    I respect your opinion , you're fortunate, because in my case I'm not able to run 4k, much less 8k with decent speed unless its SLI.

    maybe you have had a better experience at that resolution:

    What single card solution do you recommend for 4k and 8k?

    All good here, enabled SLI and all. Installed normally on build 17017-1400. All is good. GeForce Experience works as it should also. Not a lot of Game time though sadly, gotta pay attention to the new job.

    If you haven't used it in years, then I don't think that's an informed opinion.

    Two 1080ti here and 90% of my games work beautifully in SLI.

    You mean to say that SLI got better over the last five or so years?
