    man, these drivers still force my second screen to turn off when I play any fullscreen game on my main monitor and will not turn back on unless I turn the monitor on and off. with drivers 378.92 and below I can have a game open on my main screen and still second screen showing my content I have open on it without it turning off.

    Anyone else experienced this?

    Im using asus PG278Q and a asus PA329Q. also running windows creators update, any driver below 378.92 is problem free.

    Happens in exclusive fullscreen I presume? Did you try turning off Game bar and fullscreen optimizations?

    Ten day till Prey and it's AMD sponsored so NV will likely have to wait till release to test the drivers in it.

    no display port fixes for the black screens on monitors or hdr fixes for lg displays that get stuck in display activation loops that lead to BSOD TDR_VIDEO_FAILURES ? on windows 10 creators update ?

    bloody joke this is: same issue goes for HDMI port fixes for 4k hdr tv`s. or even video settings getting fixed for displays where by you set it and forget it instead the video settings in the control panel do nothing ... lol

    These drivers are almost 5% slower in every benchmark I have tested so far with my GTX1070.

    Fire Strike Comparison:

    Time Spy Comparison:

    http://www.3dmark.com/compare/spy/1634150/spy/1512766

    Super Position Benchmark:

    Using the 4K Optimized Benchmark, I went from ~6000 to ~5800

    I'll test API Overhead and add it below soon.

    EDIT:

    API Overhead Results: (Weirdly enough, pretty much identical results across the board with regards to API Overhead).

    Yeh the game running in exclusive full screen, but normally when i do that my second monitor still shows my desktop. but with this driver and the other 381.xx it blanks out my other display and stays blanked out until i turn on and off the monitor.

    I have all the game bar stuff off and fullscreen optimization is on default. If i roll back to drivers before the 381.xx all works just fine. really odd.

    I'll wait for what has become the inevitable hotfix driver before I do an install.

    No fix for black screen/artifacts after windows load on windows 10 creators update? I have GTX 1060 6Gb and I use DisplayPort. Bug only happens after Creators Update installation with 381.65 WHQL or Hotfix 381.78

    [​IMG]

    Anyone can confirm? I only read people fixing this installing old 378.92 and/or disabling fastboot on BIOS.
