    Which one is best overall? I read a lot that 1607 and LTSB are the best in terms of game smoothness. Which one you use or recommend? Im currently on 1903 and 17.7.1 drivers (less frametimes spikes for me compared to 19.5.1 or others more recents from Adrenaline 2019, still not testing enoughs from 18.x.x to compare). I5 3450, 8gb ram, R7 250X 1gb.

    You dont even have a GPU made for gaming to start with.

    Stick with 1903 , remove the bloatware.

    Install the latest driver and you are fine.

    Stick with 1903 and NEVER use that old driver. Always use the latest. 19.5.2 is much better! Also, overclock the CPU/GPU for more performance, it will worth it. I don't have problems with (almost) the same gpu.

    For what it's worth, I had an old CPU in my last system and driver 17.1.1 gave me way better frame rates in Rocket League than any other version. I'm talking like going from 90fps in Aquadome Freeplay, to over 150fps on 17.1.1.

    It seems as though newer drivers are more CPU intensive while 17.1.1 was more GPU focused. I'm sure this is so that there's more GPU headroom and people with newer CPUs won't notice anything different, but for the old Xeon I was using, there was a massive difference between 17.1.1 and 19.x.x

    For 1903 any of you have the vulnerabilities patches enabled or disabled? See any diference? Also use or not game mode? Im currently on LTSB without any update or patches. Gonna try that 17.1.1 and test fps in some of my games, so far the only 19.x.x that seems to work very good for me is the 19.4.1

    With 1903 you don't really see performance hit with the patches. Alsó, don't try that's old driver :(.
    Go with 1903+19.6.1, well worth it. The "higher fps" is just a placebo.

    I can confirm this is true, i have increased fps in overwatch and fortnite while using 17.1.1., fortnite up to 20 fps and overwatch goes as much as 40 fps.

    Are you cpu limited? Apex legends give 97 fps in lobby, all low (17.1.1) vs 94-95 (19.x.x) i could not find other way to measure performance in that game, maybe training level could work for that?
