    I don't know what the hell just happened but I just got an error saying Driver Stopped Responding and has recovered. I was just waking the PC from sleep by moving my mouse.

    Win 8 x64 - PC running for 6-7 hours straight, sleep for 1 hour.

    The origin of that rumor was this EA subsite:

    But it was not made by 'EA Gothenburg'... it was made by Criterion.
    So that right there should have told you otherwise.

    How can they make a game a month ago if they are still hiring people to this day for the same project announced a year ago?

    You guys really should not take rumors for granted here.

    I said that's where the rumor stems from, nothing else.

    It's a driving game, exact same thing!

    Anywho, I had a crash on Borderlands 2 with these, freeze to black screen and had to kill with taskmanager, otherwise everything is fine.

    Noticed on the GeForce.com forum that they've identified what caused the black screen/flickering issue with the v310.33 beta drivers on Windows 8:

    1) Flickering Screen/Black Screen After Installing R310.33/R310.54 Drivers on
    Windows 8

    Issue
    After installing the R310 driver on Windows 8, the subsequent reboot results in a black or
    flickering screen.

    Root Cause
    This occurs because Windows Update performed a background installation of a Release
    304 driver, which requires a reboot to complete the installation. After installing the
    Release 310 driver and then rebooting the system, installation of both the Release 304 as
    well as the Release 310 is completed, resulting in conflicting driver binaries and the black/
    flickering screen.

    Workaround - Prevention
    To avoid the issue, reboot the system before installing the Release 310 driver.
    Alternately, you can check the driver status under the Device Manager and perform the
    reboot if the Device Manager indicates that a restart is needed. Then install the driver.

    Workaround - Recovery
    If you did not perform the necessary reboot prior to installing the driver and now
    encounter the black screen, do the following:
    1 Reboot in Safe Mode.
    2 Uninstall the driver.
    3 Disconnect from the internet and then restrt the system.
    4 In normal mode, install the new driver.
