    EDIT:

    (In regards to SLI the earlier 378.xx drivers already added a SLI profile for Sniper Elite V4 for DX11)

    Anyone else get a permission error when opening the Nvidia folder? The driver is installed without errors but I have to take ownership to be able to access the folder and its contents.

    I hope this driver fixes some issues that I've been having low gpu usage and flickering to name a few but like somebody has said I do get a bit nervous myself about what am going to get with a new driver, I have not had a rock solid stable driver since I got my card, I use to look forward to the next new driver for the fix's and maybe at a push some more performance I mean I still do but I would like solid stable driver to start with.

    This driver has fixed a long standing issue with limited range colour while using 1080p and 720p on 1440p and 4K monitors using Display Port.

    Before now for some reason the driver would set 1080p and 720p resolutions in the driver to limited colour for my monitor on Display Port , when you looked in the Control Panel 1440p would be set at full range but if you set the desktop to 1080p or played a game at 1080p or 720p , you would actualy be playing in limited colour!

    Only when changing resolution to 1080p or 720p in control panel and applying it would that you could see the problem , i've been having to tweak that with every driver install for months , LOL

    Thankyou ManuelG and all the Driver Team :thumbup:

    Massive FPS gain in BF1 and GTA V. Around 10 FPS is both.
    A definit keeper for me.

    :bang: not cool, nvidia. not cool at all.

    i cannot use 376.* because of faulty 16xAF in quake3 and now also 378.* because of nonworking physx on 980ti cards :thumbdown
