    Hi, gonna do a poll to see the results, i'm really eager to find it out, as i for myself have one mainly bug that appeared in all 353.xx and 355.xx drivers, BLTPS physx works abnormally slow and drop gpu usage to 10%, the ONLY driver that i have zero issues was 355.84.

    I get a feeling that last nvidia driver are very poor in quality.

    My main issue now is either win10 compatibility or driver issue.. Can't really tell 100%


    The funny thing is its only those games that I really want to play :/

    L4d2 started since mid august dunno was it win10 update or driver or steam client.. But ever since ~18 August I can't play it anymore.. Always crashes with shaderapidx9.dll


    Rift, similar issue crash by game start..

    So far I tested 353.75, 355.97, 356.04 and now 358.50..

    Only issue I have ran into with drivers are when the clock states were being reported wrong in win10(which is fixed)

    And the fact the preferred max performance in global in win10 results in ZERO power state changes ever VS in win 7 preferred max performance in global the cards STILL drop to idle state when just sitting on the desktop.

    All my game play identical to previous drivers and vs how it ran on win7

    I thought I had lost a load of points in Valley, after comparing my new score to a saved old one, then just watched a YT vid of someone with a 980ti and a 6700k and they scored less than the Valley bench I had saved, so I guess I must have run that without AA or something lol

    I dont get why people put so much stock into those benchs, all that matter is how the games play and my games play way better then those benchs runs, and i talking about all the benchs. I think people just like looking at pretty numbers and comparing them to other pretty numbers, but that is just me

    I run them to compare my hardware against similar setups to make sure it's performing around the same, if it's not, there's a problem somewhere

    Yes, on win10. All drivers prior to 356.04 had a tendency to cause driver recovered errors. Some more, some less. There was one 355.xx driver which threw up that error every second after resuming from sleep mode. To this day I have issues where my TV, connected to the pc via hdmi, can flicker with a black screen if I'm viewing video with mpc-hc or kodi. It doesn't happen with any other application. Vsync is still not fixed, I had to press alt-tab to improve AC4:BF, W_D, and Batman AK's performance.

    I'm not having too many issues with Nvidia software but i am having some issues with Win 10 and Nvidia settings.

    Star Wars Battlefront for example works well with the new driver but sometimes i get a few issues. Like my HDTV switching to 1080i @30Hz when i start the game, i alt-tab to desktop and the TV switches back to 1080p @60Hz. I alt-tab again back into the game and it's fine. (btw Star wars doesn't seem to even support win 10 as it's using Win 8 compatibility mode automatically).

    Another "bug" is that 1080p @ 60 Hz has always been fine on this HDTV with Win 7 but since i installed Win 10 i now only see 59.94Hz in some games and it causes the TV to switch to 1080i.

    The TV does support full 60Hz and i can even use 1920x1200 @60Hz with no issues and 60Hz will show in games with that res.

    Problem is that it looks stretched @ 1920x1200 but the 60Hz bug doesn't show up at that res, proving the TV plays at full 60Hz fine.

    I think it has something to do with HDTV using HDMI which is not shown as a Monitor res. Something not quite right with it but i know for a fact that 1080p @ 60Hz has worked for many years using Win 7 Ultimate.

    Never once did i ever see anything about 59.94Hz while using Win 7 so i'm not sure what has changed but one thing i do know is that it's annoying as ****.

    The Battlefield:Bad Company 2 low FPS bug still is a major dealbreaker. Honestly, the last really well-functioning driver was the 353.38 Hotfix for me. Unfortunately I have to update drivers(!) to play the Battlefront Beta.
    Nvidia must have really been insistent that EA implement this forced update. Looking at the Benchmarks, it only makes sense.

    No issues whatsoever, games smooth no crashing, although for my friend with 980 sli he gets crashes with bf4 on windows 10, disabling sli fixes it though.

    Hi as I have Alienware M15X with Nvidia GTX 765M working on Windows 10 x64 I personally wasn't able to install this new update even with modded .inf file from LaptopVideo2Go or any other attempts of modifying .inf constantly during installation process when screen blackout 1st time - SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (nvlddmkm.sys) (Audio on board switched off, Driver enforcing switched off, cleaned any past nvidia drivers with tool under safe mode all done as previous - and all up to 353.62 worked fine)

    If you have GPU Usage issue try to install

    Intel Technology Access

    https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24415

    On the other thread , me and my friend it fixed the performance issues and any stuttering from visual


    I have never ever had issue with Flash player, if you do make sure to try using HTML5, if it happens there too then it's not driver issue, it's hardware , software or bios issue.

    Guys, on windows 7 or 8.1, drivers are fine? I guess win10 drivers are broken anyway.
