    playing sniper elite 4 on upscaled mode with gfe, i get a hard lock, screen goes black and my second monitor wallpaper goes a purpley black colour. Not sure if its the game or the driver / new upscaling method?

    Because I installed all drivers mentioned in my previous post last night and only 399.24-desktop-win10-64bit-international-whql works properly.

    I don't need any TechTube Jesus Nvidia paid reviewer to tell me that there are no issues when I can observed them quite clearly on my own.

    I don't care what Nvidia or said shill TechTubers think that's their own prerogative, I am simply sharing this with the consumers (you guys) so that you don't accidental freak out thinking that your GPU's (hardware) are going bad.

    I thought my GPU or memory is physically degrading seeing artifacts/flickering in Witcher 3 and Rise of The Tomb Raider.

    It is only realistic to expect them to boost performance on their IT JUST WORKS cards with every subsequent driver release and not further optimize the Pascal Architecture performance.

    Unfortunately for Pascal owners, this comes at a cost since their new IT JUST WORKS architecture drivers are degrading performance on the previous generation cards.

    Lastly, planned obsolescence is an integral part of all technology on the market today, how else would you go out and buy IT JUST WORKS cards and finance Jensen Huang's new Mansion, Yacht or an Oldsmobile collection?

    Planned Obsolescence happens anyway regardless of any driver gimping that may or may not happen, by virtue of the fact that games become more & more demanding over the years and due to the previous architecture being slower than the latest - they don't need to gimp drivers of old cards in order to create obsolescence, nor to stimulate the demand for new cards. It's been proven in many places that driver gimping of previous architecture doesn't happen. If they were to gimp drivers of the previous architecture it would only sway customers away from NVidia rather than towards. I suppose it's possible that newly released games don't get as much driver attention/optimisation on previous gen cards (and we can't really ever prove/know that because no comparisons), but they don't gimp gaming performance on titles that have already been released during that older generation's reign.

    This driver causes GTA 5 on my GTX 1080 to immediately crash when MSAA is enabled

    whoa!

    MSAA planned obsolescence confirmed! :eek:

    I'm getting very good and smooth performance with this driver. This is a keeper for me.

    or maybe it affects RTX cards too (it does), was a known bug (it was) and is already fixed for the next driver (it is)

    No, you instead make a scene and cast accusations that are false in order to stir up disorder.

    and this

    >Unfortunately for Pascal owners, this comes at a cost since their new IT JUST WORKS architecture drivers are degrading performance on the previous generation cards.

    Is irrefutably false, with multiple games faster under the 400 series drivers than they were under 399.

    But sure, lets rewrite real history because of an already resolved bug.

    The same thing happens to me even BSOD.
    I returned to 411.70, works fine.

    (Me pasa lo mismo incluso BSOD)

    I don't own a G-Sync panel so I'm not sure, but a lot of them having an issue & none of the YouTubers mentioned about it.

    Joker was asked to test, and the pig laughed at the request and said "no it doesn't"

    That's right. I own a G-Sync monitor and none of the TechTuber talks about the problems. According to my knowledge, most people have problems when they run games in borderless window mode. For me that´s a compatibility mode (multi-monitor etc.).. As a single-monitor user, i don´t have most of the described problems (frame drops, micro stuttering, input lag), because i run nearly all my G-Sync applications in fullscreen exclusiv mode. But in some cases that´s for some people not possible..

    G-SYNC in Windowed mode has always been a hack, and for me personally, it has always resulted in problems of one variety or another. I rather enjoy silky-smooth gameplay and accept a brief flash on Alt-Tab instead of bothering with Windowed-Mode.
    The beauty is that "Borderless Windowed" in DX12 using Independent Flip also counts as Exclusive mode to the driver, and G-SYNC still works. :)

    Im still at quadro 416.30 variant and I have to say it's a much better overall experience - Stabler fps and even tiny bit faster.


    To anyone not liking current 416.16 or these 416.34., give those quadro a try.

    These are giving me a lot of unnecessary stuttering in games to the point that it's really annoying. Going back to 411.70.

    I did some tests, and windowed mode g-sync starts to stutter when GPU is maxed out. If you always stay below 90% GPU or so, it doesn't stutter. As soon at it approaches max load, severe hiccups appear.

    I don't remember this happening with the 16xx versions of Windows 10.

    (Unfortunately, some games using the Full Of Problems engine, aka "Unity", do not support exclusive fullscreen, so this is an actual issue, especially since Unity will max out the GPU if you have graphics even just a bit more complex than Pac Man. Somebody please kill Unity? Please?)
