    Might be something particular to your system.
    The only issues on my machine with this driver (and 450 DX12 / 451 CUDA dev drivers) are random BSODs with HAGS enabled. With HAGS off everything works fine, including Witcher 3.

    Nothing wrong with the driver, just 442.50 performs faster :) ....I'm back on that one seeing as HAGS is useless lol.

    Win 2004 build 19041.329, driver 451.48, GTX 1070.
    World of Tanks with both HAGS+variable refresh rate on stutters heavily in windowed and borderless, buttery smooth in fullscreen.

    Did a little "real world bench marking" since I have recently been tinkering and had all the backup images handy. I ran a repeatable one minute loop in Warframe (Directx11 game), Plains of Eidolon, while running the Fraps (it still has uses) benchmark. Same place, time of day, game and driver settings, etc. One difference would be 7 has true Full Screen, where both the 10s would be doing Full Screen Optimization (borderless windowed) though I never saw a performance gain by disabling FSO.

    All clean installed, 64 bit, and updated. Results are average of three runs/loops.

    1. Windows 10 LTSC 1809 = 108 Avg FPS
    2. Windows 10 Enter. 2004 = 107 Avg FPS (HAGs on or off, same with either +/- 1 FPS)
    3. Windows 7 Professional = 118 Avg FPS :cool:

    Yep, Windows 7 still kicks the snot out of 10. Go figure.

    Fullscreen optimizations has nothing to with the game running in borderless. How are people still not getting it right?!

    Did another little benchmark. This time 2 minutes long, same place, but rather than doing a little loop, I ran the same path and ended with the last 60 seconds or so in a camp full of combat and AI action. 451.48 driver on both. Windows 7 is pretty significantly smoking Windows 10...still.

    Fraps log:
    Code:
    2020-07-01 16:05:09 - Warframe - **Win 10 LTSC**
    Frames: 19724 - Time: 120000ms - Avg: 164.367 - Min: 115 - Max: 312
    
    2020-07-01 16:25:35 - Warframe - **Win7 Pro**
    Frames: 20886 - Time: 120000ms - Avg: 174.050 - Min: 115 - Max: 330
    

    I can't imagine how I got that silly idea. o_O

    Source
    "With the release of Windows 10, we added Fullscreen Optimizations – which takes full screen exclusive games and runs them instead in a highly optimized borderless windowed format that takes up the entire screen. You get the visual experience and performance of running your game in FSE, but with the benefits of running in a windowed mode."

    Disabling low latency mode in NVCP while HAGS is enabled for in Mafia III and the few seconds of stuttering when alt tabbing with WoW Classic does remove the stuttering.
    So maybe the case for other games as well where people have seen stuttering after updating to 45x drivers on 2004 and set their preferred options for each game.

    it seems u re right ! I have exactly the same problem.
    with 451.48 we must disable RT in COD MW to have a proper game.
    (RT works like a charm with 446.14 in this game , hope Nvidia will fix it soon)

    Something completely different running games with FSO or in borderless. Running games in borderless means that they wont run in flip model unless they're dx12 which hurts performance. Just having FSO on doesnt make it magically borderless. This mental gymnastics is annoying me really.

    LOOK LOOK IT SAYS IT RIGHT HERE!!!111 ..... xD

    Low latency mode is off, since dx12 doesn't use it.

    I set power management mode to Max performance and the hitches dont occur as frequently.

    so from what ive gathered this driver doesnt give any benefits to maxwell gpu cards like 980, oh well.

    I'm on a 970 and I really liked this one. Made things really smooth.

    I guess we're not getting a hotfix driver for Detroit? Doesn't work with our without HAGS. It looks to be a shader problem with the new Vulkan driver, so there will need to be either a game update or Nvidia will have to fix it (since they broke it).

    This driver runs MHW really well on a 980ti at 1440p

    use 451.22

    There is no hotfix planned, the next driver is scheduled for mid july.

    Bummer, these seemd OK on Windows 7, but on Windows 10 LTSC 1809:

    Application popup: Windows - Display Driver Recovered From Failure : Exception Processing Message 0x401b00ec - Unexpected parameters
