The file downloaded, it's just getting blocked by Windows Defender.
I'm not having any stuttering issues with these myself, everything seems as normal.
I have the Game Bar on and I still get stuttering whether it's on or off with 388.13.
Could everyone who has stuttering try the following: close all hardware monitoring programs that are running in the background, including things like RTSS, then see whether the game still stutters.
Also, if you are running 3dmark and getting stuttering, as I was for the first time ever, could you disable Scan Systeminfo and Systeminfo Hardware Monitoring in the 3dmark settings as well as closing all hardware monitoring programs and see whether you still have stuttering?
This workaround has resolved the stuttering for myself and a few others on the Nvidia forums, it was not necessary with older drivers and I believe it's due to a bug with monitoring GPU sensors as just disabling GPU monitoring in HWInfo64 resolves the problem for affected games too.
I have a 5820K and a GTX 1080 as well as a Dell S2716DG Gsync monitor.
No stuttering here with G-Sync/Wolfenstein.
Disabled Windows Defender, confirmed no trojan, spyware or virus. Cheers.
Just reinstalled 388.13, tried your suggestion and closed MSI AB / RTSS, stuttering is gone !
I was then able to pinpoint the specific monitoring property / graph which result in stutter on polling,
that is - "Power", turning off the Power graph and no more stutter while RTSS is polling.
only tested BF1 but good enough for now. thanks !!!
That's great news, I'm glad it worked for you. It's a very strange bug though.
Could you report it to Nvidia here, please: http://surveys.nvidia.com/index.jsp?pi=6e7ea6bb4a02641fa8f07694a40f8ac6
Hopefully, that will help them isolate the problem.
Driver running pretty good in WD2...no RTSS+AB, only latest Firestorm from Zotac, vsync off in game, 4K res, gpu oc stable.
This and the last two 388 don't really make a difference in benchmark scores for me vs 387, but gaming is smooth and crash free.
I also installed thatguy91's Visual C++ Runtime Installer v55 when I updated to FCU, one of the first things I did.
Nice. So yeah this is probably a driver bug but this workaround is good too.
Just reinstalled 388.13 and turned off "Power" monitoring in Afterburner and played Fifa for a few minutes and, well, no more stuttering.
I'd have to test further to really say that the issue is gone but looks like it might be.
A big thank you.
Edit: and to ltte as well
I tried w/ or w/o MSI: AB + RTSS also shuttered, but once I installed the latest VC++, my problem is solved.
I've got Game bar on, stuttering with that driver.
Already figured out that it's power monitoring.
Well, I had GPUz open as well as HWInfo Sensors, so looks like it's the case. Thing is I want to have those things open when I'm gaming, so I've gone back to 388.00
This being a new branch, maybe it fixes the artifact issues with The Division. Testing...
Nice, it works.
Tried reinstall VC++ make no difference for me.
The stuttering thing seems erratic, it was there and then it disappeared for a while and now it's back.
VC++ and AB made no difference, plus it's only happening on this driver
OK just logged on and after installing this driver yesterday Win 10 is trying to install 2 Nvidia drivers, NVIDIA - Display - 9/16/2017 12:00:00 AM - 18.104.22.16869. And NVIDIA - Display - 5/1/2017 12:00:00 AM - 22.214.171.12405. No idea what those are but windows is trying none stop to install older nvidia drivers?.
Sorry if I'm not understanding you but do you mean uncheck the Power in OSD setting in MSI Afterburner > Settings > Monitoring as that setting is causing the stuttering for you?
That's what I did and looks like it worked.
edit: I disabled it totally though, not just in OSD
