    Just done a clean Windows Install.

    Hope it solves my issue with Black Screens after Windows Startup Logo every 1-3 weeks.

    I said "Drivers" as in plural. Meaning most sets after the 320's. It's rather easy to see that the 320's were built for speed to show off the GTX 780's horsepower etc at the time. I had the same findings in 3Dmark. But as a gamer I have a better time with the newer sets. I personally do not let 3Dmark control my rig in any way.

    Yes compared to the last beta, BF4 textures are a bit color washed.

    I reinstalled a few times with clean install and get the same thing.

    Could be my eyes but I see a major difference in that game.

    lol I was joking, but yeah this color washed effect has been here before, like it has less vibrance to it.

    Yes, I am also experiencing some issues with FF14 when tabbed out but no idea if it is Square or Nvidia. My DS4 is also been acting up a bit more with all the lastest updates from those two.

    At any rate I would kindly ask Manuel G to take a look at Final Fantasy 14.

    A lot of people play this game Manuel, daily for many hours. It would be nice if we could see some sort of optimizations happening for such a nice and growing MMO.

    I had the game crash to desktop the other day but i assumed it was the 2.16 patch. People have had very strange issues ever since that patch was released.

    I will say my firefox is sometimes crashing when i go to certain youtube videos. The weird thing is some videos load fine and some crash firefox before the page even fully loads. I may roll back my drivers this weekend just to make sure its these drivers and not something else.


    EDIT: i found the problem. It wasn't the drivers, it was my youtube settings... For some reason 'Play fullscreen videos in HD' was making firefox crash... i disabled and all is working.

    They're about the same, 331.87 looks the smoothest in Bf4..

    I remember searching for a "perfect" BF4 driver and I tested all possible newer r33x branches and so far this hidden quadro 331.87 test driver is it.

    331.87 vs 332.59 tested mostly cpu bound benchmarks
    Hitman Absolution,
    Metro2033,
    HardReset,
    ResidentEvil5 fixed bench,
    LostPlanet 2 fixed bench both dx9,
    FFXIV reborn bench

    and overall both varied ~ 2fps diff., one was faster here, other there.. overall 331.87 looked the best.


    In Thief benchmark they both suffer from min fps "streaming bug" 16fps, at high texture it goes away ~32fps. r334 didn't have that at v.high same min 32fps by start.

    Edit: it doesn't affect Thief gameplay though, streams "fine" just like with high textures.

    New Thief 1.1 update "fixed" that low fps & 331 driver, now its min 35fps with v.high textures.

    Since Diablo 3 patch 2.01 I can no longer force vSync on via the NCP or NI, is this something Nvidia needs to fix or Blizzard? The reason this sucks is the in-game vSync option causes major stutter and this was a solution to that problem.
