    " but these drivers are crap regardless, as are all the 400 series"

    Well all the drivers AFTER the 416.94s seem crap tbh. This goes for my old EVGA 1080ti FTW 3. And now its the same for my EVGA 2080 FTW 3 Ultra. The 419.17s don`t look as good visually, nor do they feel as good performancewise. How is this even possible? I`m sticking to the 416.94s till a decent driver arrives for my 2080 FTW Ultra.

    Has there ever been any proof to this ever?

    ive not once installed a driver set and thought holy crap that looks worse.



    i just tested mine with a load of random settings. It saved the settings even after rebooting twice.

    No, its just random unprovable stuff people post.

    There could be bugs that cause certain games to look worse, but that wouldn't just be "slightly worse", but obviously buggy worse then, like messed up textures or stuff like that.

    419.17 is smoother than before, especially in FIFA 19.

    Good driver on my Win 7 system , increased performance in games over 418.91 especially in GTA V.

    I have this same problem as well. I mean it's not a big deal because it's so random, but would be nice to not have it.

    I normally set all games to power management to HP in NVCP and I can confirm once I run BFv (just open to the menu) and close the settings revert to global ones. This is only BFv, BF1,4 etc all fine.
    So the game is doing this, not driver problem.
    If you're not seeing this, then maybe a specific setting in BFv causes this,.Anyway, this driver runs smoothly in BFx series.

    Good for you. I didn`t say dramaticly worse. And.... to MY eyes, anything not seemingly as good as an earlier set is crap. If these divers are ok for you, awesome. But for
    me..... no set after the 416.94s does it for me. Still waiting.

    Apex Legends still crashes for me with these and all other 418/419 drivers. 417.75 and below is fine.

    Use ctrl+shift+v to paste text when posting. Normal ctrl+v will paste not just text, but also text formatting.

    Why unprovable? I think that they can provide the screenshots which will show the difference, can they? And if they can't then it's just the usual "Quadro drivers have better IQ" BS.

    After testing several games ( Far Cry New Dawn, Metro Exodus, RE2 Remake, R6 Siege, The Division, BF4, SOTTR, NFS Payback and soon Dirt Rally 2..) i have to report 0 issues with this driver performance and stability wise. Keepers for me until the next release!
    I haven't test them on APEX Legends so i don't have a picture of what others saying about bad performance or crashes on this game so keep an eye on that guys! :)

    I've actually made people take screen shots of Quadro vs GeForce when they make that claim. They were pixel for pixel the same. I thought we were over this.

    Well that, and bit for bit the driver package is the same except for enabled pro features. As far as IQ being different between driver versions THAT has happened though rare.

    Anyone else noticed that there is a SLI nvidia recommended profile for Apex Legends.

    doesn't have great scaling but both cards 980ti are are 80% - 100% usage at 4k
