    Stuttering issues for me too using 388.10/13
    Noticed it while playing Fifa 18 (recurrent 1 frame drops)
    Just went back to 388.00 and no problems anymore

    Stuttering with these and 388.10. No issues on 388.00.

    Sure, its a The Division [but its not a good example for perfect line ; )], drivers 388.00, noticeable difference:

    For frametime I use range 0 - 100 in MSI Afterburner.

    This isn't what I would call even a "near perfect straight line" but ok.

    Which FF version are you using? FT Deep Dark isn't compatible with the latest FF releases.
    He's got a point if that is a accurate comparison. One has a lot less variance in frame time.

    Thank goodness I am not the only one experiencing stuttering.

    Hopefully ManuelG from NVIDIA will see these posts and look into it. It shouldn't be too difficult to isolate the cause since it seems to be something they've changed in v388.10 (the Kepler hotfix?) and continued into v388.13.

    Sure, if that's actually an accurate driver comparison and not a result of something else entirely.

    Thank you for reiterating my point. Apparently the only change we know of is the driver. Can we reiterate that point too?

    Everything other {settings} was the same.

    They're ok, a little higher score in FFXIV stromblood compared to 388.10 or 387.9x, ~ 100points.


    I will play more now to see if it stutters, but yesterday when I played The Division dx12@ 388.10 beta it didn't stutter..

    Such an obvious repetitive in-your-face stutter, even more so on a G-Sync panel, I'm surprised it left unnoticed with both the hotfix and game ready drivers.
    at least the driver rollback function from device manager works perfectly. so back to stutter-free 388.00, unfortunately no Wolfenstein 2 for me in the meantime.

    Can confirm stutter for me too, started either with the hotfix driver 388.11 or 388.00 - not sure.

    How did these make it WHQL and Game-Ready when stuttering in every game with a wide assortment of mainstream configurations... What a joke Nvidia.

    Wow, I have zero stuttering at all. Tested Wolfenstein 2 and AC Origins so far, with zero stuttering. And performance is slightly better with Wolfenstein 2 as well.

    Just installed 388.13 without any issues, will test a few games and report back.

    Those of you who have stuttering - which Windows version are you running? If it's 1703 or 1709 do you have Game Bar on or off?

    I can't reproduce this issue, but now I'm stick with OpenGL.
