    is it worth at all experimenting with older drivers than the most current one? ( at this moment 419.35 WHQL is latest but there is some experimental 421.xx driver )


    things like min/avg/max fps and smoothness/frametimes, is there a big difference at all in older drivers vs newer ones in this engine or games like pubg/fortnite? thanks !

    Only if the latest one gives you an apparent degradation in either performance or some feature.

    I'd say just install the driver that was released for Fortnite (do a clean install with DDU and only use it if you don't play anything newer than Fortnite) and you are good to go if you are worried about performance degradation. Also, you can also see what's your newest game that you have and install the driver for that game, no newer, no older, that should give you the performance you want, just Google: "nvidia game ready driver X game" and it should appear.

    Here are the Fortnite drivers:
