    Still getting the exact same issues as before. With G-SYNC Windowed Mode enabled, it's being forced onto programs like Paint.net... Still.

    Card is stock, no extra overclock (main reason I bought the card, sick of fiddling with OC's).
    Setting "Maximum pre-renderded Frames" to 1 seem to stopped the TDR's.
    Yet previous drivers I've had no issues with, didn't need to make any changes.

    Edit:
    With the new DDU I tried these drivers again, and behold they actually worked, no messing with profiles, leaving them as default and no TDR in Witcher 3.
    Maybe the old DDU was missing some files IDK.

    980 G1 is a great card. Even when I oc to 1530mhz I don't see much difference so I personally leave at stock.

    I've been using DDU and guess it's possible the previous release may missed removal info. I'll try the latest DDU version (Version 15.3.0.0) to see if there is any difference.

    Edit: No difference after fresh install of 353.12 and still getting "Display Driver stopped working" error. Then manual install in Control Panel --> Device Manager of 347.88 (display driver only) and everything works fine with no errors.

    Ok I think I've nailed it.

    I saw this problem back when the GTX980 first came out, it's to do with the PhysX driver.
    Now I did a clean install of these drivers today, had a crash during Witcher 3, not a TDR just a crash back to the desktop.

    With all the talk about Witcher 3 physx use I thought I would test it out.
    Batman Arkham Origins I have found to be the best to test Physx, and well the physx wasn't working at all, set to CPU or GPU didn't matter, the objects didn't move.
    I didn't even have the option to set Physx to High in the settings.
    This was Déjà vu of last years GTX980 launch driver problem.

    So I uninstalled the included PhysX and manually installed the stand alone downloadable version.
    Restarted.
    PhysX working, no crashing.

    I suggest anyone have TDR's to double check if their physx is actually working correctly.
    None of the testing programs (fluidmark etc) picked it up, Batman AO and Metro LL seem to be the best.
    Batman AO physx objects don't move or are black, Metro LL will crash (these are in the benchmarks), make sure your physx is set to the highest possible setting.

    Oh I will add this PhysX installation problem doesn't happen to everyone or all the time, I installed these drivers 5 times, 1 time the physx installed correctly the rest it didn't.
    Manually installing is the best bet.

    Thanks for your findings.Have not had driver issues but i have been skeptical over the years of how many pieces of software Nvidia has been adding on to the driver package.Installing physx manually afterwards and the standalone no less, I think I'll go back to doing it like that again, thanks.

    So, not sure if this was there before, but I *think* after patch 1.05 there is a new dll in the directory: GRB_1_1_api3_x64.dll.

    Its properties say it's the 'GPU accelerated Rigid Body' dll. Question is then... like with the APEX_ClothingGPU dll, is setting Physx to CPU going to be better for this, or GPU if it's more demanding? :)

    use the latest DDU install 353.12, the freeze straight away occurred. if got 347.88 as base the issue can last longer. definitely something wrong with the driver...

    Disable "Enable G-SYNC globally" in NVIDIA Inspector and restart.

    GTA V gets a bit sluggish and choppy for me with these drivers after 20-30 minutes. And sometimes the textures and stuff seem to just stop loading after a little while.

    Like for example, I went to do the FIB raid and when I got to the FIB building the textures were all black, the front doors were missing, there was no peds inside the entrance, and the interior textures were just all black. Exit the game and restart it, FIB building back to normal, but 20-30 minutes later the same thing was happening somewhere else.

    Also getting points where the FPS drops down to the teens for no reason and alt+tab / alt+enter a few times seems to return it to normal

    Might go back to 350.12 if I dont feel like trying anything else

    In fact, it completely disable the G-Sync. I only seek to disable the desktop.

    Actualy, G-sync is actived full desktop and permanent :3eyes:

    Only drivers 347.88 is good for G-sync

    Does not work. Red light still ALWAYS on on desktop (Rog Swift) with any driver after 347.88.

    Nvidia have seriously lost their **** in the last few months with their drivers

    Still ok here, not a single TDR yet.. Day 5-6 now.


    In MSI ab monitoring I raised polling rate to 4000ms from 2000-3000ms, so maybe its something with that too like someone else mentioned it , had it @ 3000ms last time with 353.06 (2nd - 3rd day TDR @ forums)..
    Although I didnt run it in background much.


    Also GTA5 ran ok too with these, 60fps msi AB rtss limit + vsync + direct input = pure smoothness. :)

    i get many crashes and restore driver in warframe. the game uses physx. back to 347,25 and its better but get crahes in void also. And because i play assassin's creed unity. There is a bug in all helix-missions not showing correct. not repaired since 347.25. last driver 353.12 very very unstabel and get computer systemfreezes. had to reset.
    I noticed, that the unstable crashes and freezes are only in warframe and i set in physx from auto (what commented as to be best) to physx set to my GPU. I noticed only one crash of the game in 24 hours. Thats much better now.
