    Pointless poll and pointless topic.
    Every user has a set of games to play, has a different gpu, configuration and a different system. Beside the fact of absent unified way to test all these drivers.

    It's been said many many times before, but this misconception needs to be squashed. The only difference between a NVidia Beta driver and a WHQL driver is one is signed by MS and one is not. MS does not test it, they just certify it, which takes about a week or more. And because it takes week/s, NVidia likes to release Beta drivers to push them out faster.

    We have had WHQL drivers in the past that literally destroyed cards.

    356.04 was the last "mostly" stable driver for me. It wasn't on the survey but I give it a plus 1

    which driver would you guys recommend for playing soma at 4k resolution.


    it stutters really bad with vsync on.


    I got sli working and its better but when turning in the game. it still stutters


    the stutter is almost gone with vsync off. but really bad screen tearing.


    edt: fixed it. locked fps to 30 and with vysnc on, game is smooth at 4k
