    Hi

    I spotted new Nvidia driver 355.78 (released 8-22-15) for windows 10,8,7,Vista 32bit/64bit on NVIDIA Developer.

    https ://developer.nvidia.com/oculus-07-sdk-driver-support

    INFO:
    1. It provides beta support for VR developers using Oculus 0.7 SDK.
    2. It provides a bug fix for an intermittent issue found in the publicly released 355.60 Game Ready driver as well as solving an issue with incorrect display timings.

    I didn't test it yet and I won't give any info about branch and supported gpus, so don't be suprised if you need to mod inf.

    I will be at home very late and I will follow thread on a cell phone, but maybe some of you can test it and give some info.

    EDIT: It's my first post so please remove space after https

    Seems they use this time a developer driver to fix some issues with the last official release instead of a hotfix.

    Driver works perfectly fine! :)

    And the funny thing is, it's the first time that it shows this for me:

    [​IMG]

    It used to show DirectX runtime version 11.0 but now it shows DirectX runtime version 12.0 so I'm happy with that. :D

    Branche: r355_60-2

    Enjoy the drivers guys! No inf modding or driver disable signature needed, just install and game on. ;)

    I'm testing it right now. I gained 2 points in Fire strike compared to 355.60, so they're pretty much the same performance wise. In bf4 I noticed that this driver fixes some stuttering problem I was having.

    In all the 355.xx drivers before this one, I had to limit fps using Afterburner and also limit fps ingame to kill stuttering, with this driver it runs fine without any limiters. So far so good!

    Nice find Krzyslaw, thanks. Looking forward to testing on the Oculus Rift, wonder if this is going to fix the Windows 10 conflict.

    I think the problem is in visceral's hands though. That game's a mess since release.

    Could you tell me if the 1sec freezes or fps drops are still in with this drivers or the problem was solved.
    In win 8.1 with drivers from 353 branch I was playing fifa 15 with full HD resolution, 4xmsaa and high rendering option and I was geting from 47 to 60 fps during gameplay with fps hit only in cut scenes which is absolutely normal but with all 355 branch drivers in windows 10 I'm getting something like 1 sec freez wtih fps drops about 5-6fps during this hang/freez, even in menu fps drops to even 32fps which is strange beceause it didn't happened in win8.1 and 353 branch drivers.

    And YES i know my GPU is not a monster but I swear with OC and Nvidia Inspetor I can play at CS:GO with about 40 to 55, SIMS 4 with 35 to 60 fps, LOL with 54-60 fps and FIFA 15 at 47 to 60 fps. All games maxed out at FULL HD resolution with in game AA. But those freezes in FIFA 15 with 355 drivers are killing me during online play.

    get major crashing with these drivers on my TRI SLI setup and 2x gsync monitors, windows boots up and suddenly hangs once past the log in screen, tried DDU but still got the issue, gone back to 355.60 and no issues.
