    I don't think this is new to this driver set, I'm still on 382.53 and my GPU's idle and 139MHz.

    One other new thing, not strictly driver related - it looks that the 1.6.1 patch for The Division added DX12 DLL for HFST shadows so HFTS is actually working in DX12 in The Division now.

    Xbox APIs are different from PC's and it's generally a lot easier to make a good low level renderer for a fixed h/w platform. I just don't think that Ubisoft will be able to get better performance out of DX12 than they get in DX11, but who knows...

    Thanks, guys. So they did actually upgrade this capability and Maxwell got the upgrade as well, nice.

    You are using a Titan card which is reference only, all Pascal reference cards are idling out on the same 139 MHz AFAIK, it's the custom OC versions which had higher idle clocks previously for some reason.

    Heh, this one is interesting to the point where I'd say this is a bug of the driver distributive - they install the same old 1.0.42.1 Vulkan runtime but the Vulkan driver itself reports that it is supporting Vulkan 1.0.46.0. So theoretically the driver is limited by the runtime which is supplied within the same package.

    WATCH_DOGS 2 crashes during loading for me with this driver, although oddly there's no error recorded in the Event log. I thought it might be triggered by MSI Afterburner v4.4.0 Beta 12 or RTSS v7.0.0 Beta 26 which I'm using but the game still crashes with an exception added for it.

    Can anybody report on the Gsync 144Primary/60Hz secondary display frame drop/stuttering bug? Would like to update my 3 months old driver

    Yes. Higher binding tier allows the GPU to manage more assets without the need to use CPU to re-bind them when the slots are running out. Tier 3 basically has no limitations on the number of bound assets. This is a performance optimization.

    So is this a hardware thing, or can it be done through software? I'm wondering why they waited so long to introduce it into the drivers. I mean, Maxwell v2 came out nearly 3 years ago.

    That said, it's not as though we've had any games out recently that used the new binding model, so nothing was harmed by this delay.

    Just clean installed these drivers after a DDU run. D3D12 resource binding tier did go from 2 to 3. Idle clocks dropped to 139MHz on the core, every driver since 378.xx through 382.xx had it at 165MHz. I noticed that the NVCP has the "allow experience improvement program" option under the help tab. Is that new?

    As for DX12 games that may have benefited from these drivers, my benches for Gears 4 (built in bench) and both Forza's (custom route for benching) are exactly the same down to about 0.2 FPS difference at most. May try Hitman 2016 later to see if that is better or not against the 382 drivers.

    Other than that, I'm going to keep using these drivers until I see a reason not to.
