    Seriously, it's enough with this stuff already (especially when most of it turns out to be rubbish).

    Improved Image Quality and more features/support are translated into less performance for older GPUs by the time of release. Nothing to see here, move on people, if you do not like your actual gaming experience upgrade your hardware, do not cry nor blame manufacturers/vendors.

    this is just testing before and after a new performance crippling spectre pattern update.

    if you really think this is true, and you hate nvidia for this, then stop buying their cards and move on you have amd to rely on, they have their "fine wine" if you want your card to improve over the years in new games (but the performance in older titles get worse), in my case it doesn't happen, and i still buy nvidia because it's reliable for me, if you think nvidia is doing something shady, then just stop buying, stop creating this kind of threads and complaining, i've been a happy nvidia user for years and never saw this, and when i do, nvdia releases a hotfix or a better driver.

    And for the people who said the've been seeing this for years, but still have an nvidia gpu on their profiles, or they are masochit or dumb (if they really think nvidia do that), sometimes your system is bloated with a lot of stuff, or the new games just don't like older architecture, that's all.

    Its happened before with Kepler, but its game specific, esp with newer games. Not that Nvidia is purposely doing so, they are just focusing on latest cards performance as a priority. So older cards may not get optimizations as quickly as newer ones do.

    It's been Nvidia's practice for years.I guess people just anticipate that this time it actually turns out to be true, whenever new tech is introduced that is.(Sort of like the people who think the world will end in their lifetime :rolleyes: as if).
    Once they get the tweaks for a specific series into regular rotation, then they start tweaking for other older series as well.Case in point, 670 SLi I was running before, when the Titan driver dropped I saw better utilization of the gpu.Not a huge boost in performance according to benchmarks, but gameplay felt smoother.
    If DJ_Alex's sig is correct (GTX 980) then he's seeing it too, as he claims the 416.16 driver worked really well for him.
    Same with the 1070 in mine.Nvidia isn't out to "screw you over" (well kind of, $500 for a 2070 is insulting)
    but that hits a different niche.
    Just continue to report bugs and they'll get at it once it's legit.
