    On the RTX 2070 Windows 10 system I can install these drivers just perfectly, but on the GTX 980 system I always get " This driver is not compatible with this Windows Operating System "

    Quadro Maxwell is on the supported product list, Geforce Maxwell isn't shown as supported.

    Tried a modded INF?

    Thread at https://forums.guru3d.com/threads/nvidia-inf-driver-modding-guide.377158/

    NVCleanstall also allows modding the driver INF, use the EAC compatible signing mode for gaming.

    Might not work but worth a try as Maxwell ( along with Kepler ) are supported for Quadro in 472.84

    Is it even worth installing over the normal drivers?

    No unless you are developer. Even then check changelog. If you normal user/gamer then use the game ready drivers

    No, there is a slight degradation in gaming performance, makes no sense to use these if you use your gpu for games.

    something is different in this driver, there is a stability and degradation similar to 496/497.

    Its visible and measurable. Why Why Why? What is nvidia up to?

    I have issues going to 496/497 that are stability and functionality related, and those are listed in the appropriate threads. However I have been holding back at 472.47.
    the 472,84 has the same performance drop as the 496/497 and introduces the same micro stutters on 4k+ .
    Reverting to 472.47 resolves the issues.

    Driver performance degradation:

    Vulkan
    461.72 driver - Gravity Mark score 71.382
    466.77 driver - Gravity Mark score 71,424
    471.41 driver - Gravity Mark score 70,663
    472.12 driver - Gravity Mark score 69,057
    472.39 driver - Gravity Mark score 68,841
    472.47 driver - Gravity Mark score 69,985
    496.61 driver - Gravity Mark score 64,362
    497 untested due to artifacts and stability
    472.84 driver - Gravity Mark score 65,554

    DX12
    461.72 driver - Gravity Mark score 67,344
    466.77 driver - Gravity Mark score 67,211
    471.41 driver - Gravity Mark score 67,315
    472.12 driver - Gravity Mark score 66,758
    472.39 driver - Gravity Mark score 65,446
    472.47 driver - Gravity Mark score 65,888
    496.61 driver - Gravity Mark score 60,271
    497 untested due to artifacts and stability
    472.84 driver - Gravity Mark score 62,003

    The more you post these, the more I wonder if these scores are entirely down to your multi-GPU setup or if they are applicable to single-GPU systems as well. Have you tried to replicate those performance degradations with only one card active?

    I never test any game in 3Dmark it's pretty pointless.

    As you can just fire up your games and play.

    However, nvidia recent drivers are a total mess in terms of performance specially in Doom Eternal and BL3.

    I have benched with only one card (dual disabled in cpl as well as single in gravity mark)). I did not keep a consistent list ;llike I did with the standard setup. I started benching single only after a few members asked for single. The pattern is still present but the gap between lowest and highest is not as extreme but seems about a 2900 (from highest to lowest) point spread vs 7200 from highest to lowest (same settings).

    Disabling resizable bar in BL3 has smoothed out issues on that title (its enabled by default)
    Doom Eternal is a better experience on 471 or lower (466 is best)

    but the latest iterations of drivers are half baked or nvidia is up to something. I've been measuring and keeping track on the issues I'm experiencing

    BL3 doesn't work right with ReBar you right, but even after disabling it it still performs much worse than 472 series.

    nVIDIA drivers really a big miss lately.

    NIS driver was a superb idea, it can be done at driver level, it looks quite good for being an upscaler, but then people realized if affects performance globally at native resolution if not disabled. Like what the hell nvidia? And there is no word on a fix for this yet, this is just lame. Seems the latest standard game ready driver from their webpage search function is the most recommended one right now, but the idea is to use the newer and nice features without having to pay a price. Guess you gotta use NIS for games that you need it and then disable it for games that you can run fine at native res, which is extremely annoying too.

    So as of now, it is safe to say that objectively the best driver would be 461.72?

    Seems, from my observations, the best performance and stability is 461.72 or 466.77 - they both behave very similar and predictably well.

    All things being equal: at 4k resolutions, using standard (cleaned) driver, in single and dual GPU
    configurations
    installing latest Vulkan runtime after driver install


    Hope that helps

    Oh look, the pathetic manchild is still seething because he got questioned about his mighty Tesla drivers. What a sad little kid. I do have a super stable driver, but i want to try some newer ones. Truly a shame you are an "ancient guru" based on pointless posts over and over.
