    YouTube videos are flashing with these drivers, they worked properly with the Quadro 320.49 drivers.

    I am using Windows 8.1 by the way.

    Any alternate downloads for these? Getting really slow speeds and corrupted files.

    32X drivers in a nutshell, good for synthetics benchmarks but terrible for real world performance, every time a "big" game is out, one of those included in typical benchmarks, then GPU manufacturers deliver new "optimized" (cheating) drivers quickly not bothering what they break in the process, so much for DirectX and other APIs making software and hardware layers communicate easily, it might be but both Nvidia and AMD are doing their best to make this a race to the finish line of stupidity. 3 sets of drivers a month at least, what the heck man, isn't computers supposed to become user-friendly? I've been on 314.22 for months with no issues, overclocking or not, the team that worked on them should focus on wiping the 32X and start building the new 33X.

    It looks like there is now a hardcoded shortcut that changes displays to Span mode via the control panel: Ctrl+Alt+S.

    Any hints how to disable it?

    I had that but it seem its a Windows 8 Issue. I have installed 8.1 preview and never saw it again even with the same drivers.

    If you mean the flashing transparent white, I do have this too on IE with youtube with AMD GPU too.

    It happens mostly when using WDDM 1.3 drivers.

    On both AMD and NVIDIA if I use a standard windows 8 driver (WDDM 1.2) I didn't encounter the problem.
    So my guess is Windows 8.1 or "the windows 8.1 Flash Plug-in for IE" is the culprit.


    You can also use Chrome. We don't see the bug there.

    Maximuize on all triple monitors rather than one and taskbar centralized and start menu to open only on one screen rather than spanned on all.

    back to 314.07 again for me. BF3 still has the missing terrain textures on Wake island.

    I also played a little tomb raider and had a driver crash (black screen and Precision reset my OC after about 5 minutes play... temps were fine.

    I don't think I'll bother trying future drivers, the only game that's really borked with 314.07 is Crysis 3 (I get the well known dxgi error)

    shame really... I was hoping these would be great.

    Confirmed and consistent drop in Valley score (small, ranges from .3 to .6 FPS), confirmed and consistent drop in 3DMark Fire Strike (over 100 points). Picture is a bit less crisp, enough that I borrowed a second pair of eyes to confirm I wasn't going blind.

    Fire Strike scores:

    Considering there are plenty of people (like me) who have these crashes and issues on 600 and 700 series cards, this definitely isn't true. Take a look at Nvidia's own forums for the drivers. There are a bunch of reports of instability issues with these 32x branch drivers. ManuelG created a thread requesting reports from people with unstable systems on the newer drivers, and requesting cards be sent in for testing (only by those in the US, though). The problems are obviously reported often enough that they have to acknowledge it in at least a generalized "let us know the circumstances and send us your hardware" way.

    I actually get the same crashes on both my GTX 580 and GTX 770 with drivers past 314.22, so it likely isn't just a hardware family-specific issue either.

    It was just a troll post. I haven't had a single problem with my card, but I can see others are having problems. I don't get why some people have no problems and others have crashing issues, it's very strange.

    I know. Sorry, bad habit. I just have a tendency to reply when people try to make light of problems, especially if I can sympathize.

    I've had zero issues with all 320.xx drivers. Card running flawlessly for me in all recent games tested. Dont have BF3 which seems to have issues with 320 series drivers. I also think that far more people with issues would complain in forums than those who dont.

    All the reviews of the 770 came out flawless. I used the 770 as an example since it ships with 320.xx drivers which most users and all reviewers have used.

    Even on Newegg, there are very few complaints about the 770. And thats a place where you would probably expect more pbkbac issues than those who could handle or identify problems. Almost all the 770s sold on Newegg have 5 egg ratings. If Neweggs buyers reflected those on Nvidias forum, we would probably see all 1 egg ratings. Of course those with issues wont feel any better, but it may put things in perspective.

    Well, I'm going to give this driver a run, despite all that I'm reading. Will be testing it over the next few days with quite a few games but honestly don't expect many issues as I haven't had many with the 320.xx series.

    I won't be able to say anything for or against the firefox issue, as I dropped FF for Chrome a while ago and never looked back.
