    What exactly is a life for you? Go pick on people on forums just to defend something you like even when's wrong?

    I was invited to news writer by Neobond without asking anything, guess your "spamming news" turned into a quality someone, you know, that pretty much proves i'm contributing to the community and not spam useless stuff like you do.

    Best part is how i didn't see Neowin popping nowhere or bringing news by themselves since then, if at all before either. Quality sites. :nerd:

    I got demoted because they think they could command me, so i called him a a jackass and he demoted me, it's pretty obvious that was gonna happen, he got what he deserved to trying to command someone volunteering to promote his site by using someone to post fast software news that would reach other sites through Google before pretty much other site out there.

    I'm sorry if i didn't buy this to play Tetris. :)

    Based on your posting intelligence, i ask myself how some people even have a job.

    Job that pays well, yeah go work to a another country where the income of the same job is 70% less and say that again, it's like you are doing something useful to anyone besides yourself with your work anyway, useless person,

    Have you even done volunteering? Donated to the poor even tho you are paid so well? Yeah thought so.

    Sorry for the offtopic, i just like to play with smartasses that once again proved they have no arguments and bring nothing of value to the discussion so they start random stuff.

    This needs to stop. No one can see the information they might need about this new driver thanks to all the immaturity from quiet a few people in here.

    Back on topic please. 344.60...

    That's what i was doing before that random someone appeared because he doesn't like to see his beloved nVIDIA get blamed for their mistakes.

    Gonna do a TL;DR of what i said before:

    Gigabyte GTX 970 G1

    - Alien Isolation: Plays Great, no more issues loading levels
    - Battlefield 4: Plays Great
    - Far Cry 3: Plays Great
    - Final Fantasy XIV: Terrible performance, apparently not the only MMO with issues based on others feedback.
    - Guild Wars 2: Plays Ok, could be better but that depends on the devs.
    - Mirror's Edge: Plays Great
    - Witcher 2: Plays Great

    I have absolutely no issues (at least that i've noticed) on Windows, watching movies, or anything else. HDMi Still doesn't work.

    There was just a problem with GeForce Experience i didn't mention where some buttons were missing, like the buttons to configure LED Visualizer for example, but i uninstalled it and installed the standalone installer of version 2.1.3 from the nVIDIA downloads section and now no buttons missing.

    Overall it's a good driver for my 970, but still doesn't fix performance problems some people have with some games, still it's a Game Ready driver and not an optimization one, that's why i keep bringing research into the Final Fantasy XIV issues and might help nVIDIA to realize what's going on, which can be easily seen on previous pages, and i also explain to people that are kind enough to ask where i have these issues so they check by themselves.

    Take it easy guys :)
    regarding driver reviews, its kinda hard to check based forum user review
    i mean, people that coming to forum and post, more often writing about issue on their system, rather than people that have working system nicely and just go to forum writing "this driver is amazing! thank you"

    But yes if the driver is bad enough, there will be more post than usual

    I am using 344.48 on 780 lighting right now
    so far every games i played are okay (based what i feel)... firefox flash still crashing though lol, but i think that adobe issue rather than gpu
    while i dont play FF14 much anymore nowdays, FF14 seems just ok on my system

    and I agree FF14 is crap game:cheers:, graphic maybe lil-bit better than other MMO, but the game is so boring, every patch giving same content, repeating contents over and over... and end-contents is just about memorize gimmick + RNG luck based drop/lot... its just feel not right and old to me ... no offense to FF14 player but that based what i feel about the game


    @EL1TE
    i check around, and find reddit + lodestone forum about 970/980 issue, but its more like fogs bugs, got fixed by recent driver but some getting low fps... while other said nothing wrong...so its possible game client or driver..
    but you are saying other game works great, only FF14 is bad
    so why only FF14?
    IMHO you shouldnt just think this because crappy driver, as there is possibility game-engine-client side that have unusual DX9 technique that result low FPS, i think you should ask SE support too, even i am kinda sure they will saying nothing wrong in their game, usual SE manner

    EDIT: oh btw try remove GeforceExperience, might not have relation but its evil/crap software
    i got lots issue with GFexperience before, uninstall it and no more issue
    now everytime i update driver, i also skip installing it and other than i dont use

    You guys need to put this to rest and get back on topic. That would be discussion on the Nvidia Geforce 344.60 WHQL Driver. If you guys can't stop fighting, your accounts will all be terminated for the greater good of this community. I will not tolerate this childish bashing from either party.

    I'm new to NVidia, well since 8800GT anyway, so have never used GeForce Experience before.

    Seemed ok on .48 and seems OK on too.60, what are the issues I should be looking out for? Can't say I've noticed anything?

    Maybe he is talking about the issues with GFE that came with 344.11 and 344.16 were it would give a lot of errors when using SweetFX, it was fixed with GFE 2.1.3

    Personally i like to use it to configure the LED, but that's pretty much what i use it for.

    OK cool, thanks.

    I like that LED visualiser too, I had my LED dancing away to music last night lol

    Whatever next! :)

    I just have it on breathing mode now.

    Considering my computer was built for text editing, some image processing and CUDA video encoding (my job is basically translating subtitles for TV shows) I am a bit disappointed with the CUDA situation now and how some of the software I used for encoding won't work right unless I "trick" the system registering the old NVCUVENC libraries...

    Apart from that these drivers are the best I've ever tried regarding gaming, I don't do a lot of gaming but I can see the optimizations made in recent releases of the drivers and how the CPU is not that stressed anymore (which is nice considering the ancient CPU in my computer), in relatively modern games I always had to resort to 1080p 30 fps, now I can play a lot of games in 60 fps with little compromises thanks to the CPU not being that much of a bottleneck anymore. Thanks Nvidia ! just hope the software that used to go with NCUVENC switch to NVENC as soon as possible : )

    It does monitor GPU speed and temp, doesn't it? I'm sure I've seen some info tab. And it has to have some monitoring capabilities otherwise the GPU temp and utilisation options for the LED thing wouldn't work.

    Or do you mean more indepth coverage?

    Mordor seems a bit smoother than .16. Also working great in BF4 and SC2.

    I have some minor issues with DSR

    - The Evil Within, it doesnt work - not scalling properly. It outputs non downsampled resolution

    - COD BlackOps2, the game would occasionally crash with unexpected handle caught error or something like that. Works ok, but once I enable DSR and make a fresh start it can fail by game start (BEX as cause).. Usually it changes my desktop to downsampled reso and then hangs there. I have to remove DSR completely and repair game cache to make it working again.



    And forced ambient occlusion issue

    - TeamFortress2, default AO flag flickers on/off or disappear in 2fort map, still...

    - COD World at War multiplayer, its AO flag has huge bleeding, same in COD4 Modern Warfare.

    These drivers are terrible. I went back to 344.48 for COD:AW and the game runs a lot smoother with one card only. Enabling sli brings a whole lot of stuttering and hitching and actually lowers frames.

    Hopefully Nvidia optmizes sli usage so I can crank up the Supersampling in game.

    all that money used on hardware, and yet still no clue that two cards in SLI does not magically double the ram that way.

    Oh. my. god.

    This is the reason cards such as the Titan Z sells.

    Yes, i just checked my GFE and it seems like it looks for keywords like "Program Files", "Steam"/"SteamLibrary", and "Games" in folder names. I have a bunch of drives with multiple Steam Libraries in my computer and those are what was found. Not sure if its registry or just simple keyword matching (the Games folder it found isn't a steam directory).

    On the other hand, it did not find my FFXIV install, since its not in any of those folders. I have to add that one manually. Good to know that it saves if you update through GFE, i may just start doing that. I normally do a clean install (not using DDU though). The installers have come a long way :)

    Is there a fix coming for Nvidia Driver crash on certain cards in Advanced Warfare? My friend with a GTX 660 Ti crashes all the time, his PC reboots mid game fairly often which really sucks for him.
