    In BF1 do you run Dx12 or Dx11 ?

    I saw many posts on BF1 forum were the Dx12 runs better on 10xx cards.
    It doesn't for me with 970 last time i checked, the fps spread is more in Dx12 (min to avg to max).

    LOL. It's the first thing that comes to mind whenever I read there's a new driver release. :banana:

    But WTH, I always fall for the trap. :nerd:

    Its been elaborated in 378.49 and 378.57 driver thread. Quick recap, new compute optimization option broke hw physx.

    Quick check gpu-z and you will see missing hw physx.

    i'm losing from 6 to 15 fps in games with those drivers, reverting drivers helped so im skiping these one (is nvidia gimping maxwell already?:confused:)

    here's an example in FC primal i lost 6 fps, in bf1 i lost 15 in dx12 and 10 again in dx11

    any driver previous 378.66 (even 378.49)

    the benchmark was nearly the same but still less ins 378.66 (don't mind the cpu score chrome was on with some youtube at background)

    BF1 was also patched today though. does that have anything to do with your 10fps gain?

    Sad to see this. Guess I'm staying with 376.60 for a while longer. I'm interested in Sniper Elite 4, but I'm waiting until it goes on sale and has Denuvo removed. Maybe by that point we will have a working 378.xx or 380.xx that works for the 980Ti's.

    For me there still is an incompatibility with SweetFX FarCry Primal (a crash when starting a message Faulting application name: FCPrimal.exe ....) so back to 376.33 where everything is absolutely o.k. 378.xx series is for me by far unusable. In other games where you just. SweetFX this error is not ....

    Performance is the same as the 378.49, give or take 1 or 2 fps. Didn't see any real gains in GTA either.

    It's a back door way of Nvidia trying to get you to buy a PhysX GPU. :)
