    Will The Division dx12 alt+tab crash ever be fixed??

    Just go one now by start of the game.. It lost focus and switched to windowed, I have 2-3sec time to alt+enter FS otherwise it crashes later. Nvm later ingame, insta crash if I go back to game. Dx11 all fine.

    I keep the Default Color and my TV automatically do the changes . for me the TV is always set to Dynamic Range FULL or Black Level /LOW and the Computer is set to Limited . then it doesn't matter because almost all the Default modes are Limited only so in HDR it's limited anyway. and it stays all the times.

    Ok, i figured it out.

    Nvidia drivers are good. The stuttering you're getting isn't from the Nvidia drivers. Its because you haven't updated your intel drivers. Basically if you're updated to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, you'll need to update your intel drivers, most importantly the chipset, mei and firmware, rst and lan. If you don't you'll get odd bugs as stuttering in games, audio cut outs from youtube when you minimize and so on.. I repeat, nvidia made a great driver here but its tuned up for the fall creators update so if you haven't updated your chipset drivers and so on.. you're going to run into issues.

    Where am i going to get the drivers? Well, most manufacturers don't update it, and nvidia can't really hold your hands on every little issue you're getting ( We're supposed to be guru's right? we're using this forum) Aside from that i'll help ya out.. for the Z170 that is.. Asus updates the drivers and shows you which ones to get... Also update the mei firmware while you're at it.. check stationdrivers forums to install the new firmware

    https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/Z170-DELUXE/HelpDesk_Download/

    Go here and if you got z170 board, download these. Should update you and get you up to spec and pumped. Shouldn't run into any issues from new nvidia drivers and up..

    Your welcome.

    ..I'm on 388.13 and its running okay (no weird frame hitching, no youtube video cutting out when minimizing chrome etc). uninstalled 388.00, i guess this old driver don't utilize the upgrades the new one has aka 388.13.

    Anyway, manualg, can you guys fix the performance in bioshock 1 (not remastered) weird pauses? thanks for fixing the texture bugs with the slot machine using dx10.

    @snight01 Yeah, I agreed with you, but 388.13 performance is not good enough & majority of them doesn't believe the Intel drivers will solve their issue.

    Hey i didn't believe at first, but oddly after a few troubleshooting, i figured it cant be nvidia drivers. So i narrowed it down to the intel drivers.. gigabyte doesnt update their drivers... Station drivers are helpful but i can't seem to narrow it down any further. Then came Good ol' asus... Did a fresh install/secure erase to validate testing and yep... it works.

    Remember i just dont narrow down to intel drivers i test every single part of my system and clocks to make sure nothing is causing the issue. After all the troubleshooting.. it narrowed down to intel and the new O/S update not nvidia.. i found it silly downgrading to 388.00...

    I mentioned before, but nobody trust me. Actually, 388.13 is pretty decent & left some bugs to be fixed. If the driver is not playable, NVIDIA should have pulled down.

    Majority users don't like to update the motherboard BIOS. E.g. Your Z170 Deluxe BIOS change-log.

    ME Update tool
    Intel has identified security issue that could potentially place impacted platform at risk. Use ME Update tool to update your ME.
    *We suggest you update ME Driver to the latest Version 11.7.0.1040 simultaneously.

    I did not have any trouble with this driver but asus launched an firmware update for ME a few days ago saying that there was an vulnerbility with the old intel firmware so figure that out hehe

    I'm on AMD with latest chipset drivers. So no, it is the Nvidia drivers

    How can it be intel/amd and not nvidia?

    It's like night and day 388.00 vs 388.13 regarding micro-stutter 388.13 introducing the stutter.

    If you're right, that means anyone on older hardware cant avoid the stuttering issue introduced with 388.13 and future drivers.

    I'm on an x79 chipset.

    And before anyone says its old and not powerful enough, its simply not true with a good overclock.

    The 388.xx have a lot of bugs & I've mentioned a few of them that I'm able to reproduced it.

    Regarding the shuttering might be related more to Microsoft itself. By the way, I didn't say anything about older hardware will cause shuttering. :confused:

    Sorry its when I read, https://forums.guru3d.com/threads/n...wnload-discussion.417625/page-19#post-5492022 and then https://forums.guru3d.com/threads/n...wnload-discussion.417625/page-19#post-5492029

    Its all good, I apologise.

    Just frustrated that this new driver introduced the stuttering/shuttering/micro-stutter.

    My rig is also on x79 chipset.
    Off-topic
    What SATA drivers? Have you tried IvyBridge-E CPUs? They have better implementation of PCI-E and a little bit cooler than SandyBridge-E.

    During x79 released, I don't even able to afford it.

    Overall, the gaming experience with this driver is not smooth enough & let's hope the next WHQL will fix it!

    Being stuck on the v388.00 driver due to the stuttering/microstuttering issue with this driver, it's disappointing that NVIDIA have not released their usual hotfix driver. I can't help thinking that I am getting less performance in Wolfenstein II and Assassin's Creed: Origins because the driver I am forced to use is not the Game-Ready one for those games. This is the first time that I can recall in years where I've had to stick with an older driver due to issues with the latest one. :(
