Latest NVidia drivers

Recommended Posts

Updates earlier this year gave me stutters so rolled back to the last driver I had smooth performance from (337.88) but haven't checked any updates in a couple of months.

 

How're the latest drivers for everybody? Any stuttering?

344.75 just released - has some new AAAF coding apparently.  I'm installing it on the new machine as I type this.  I'll report back.  Also, see the thread on "hitches."

The 344.75 was the one that caused lots of problems... Reverted back quickly and don't remember what they were, but I did take a fr hit.

My experience with this  drivers is no different from the previous ones - had them since they were released - maybe they are stuttering and I was blaming other issues????

The new ones caused horizontal black bands or desktop showing through on my HDMI  connections using Nvidia surround. The hotfix drivers 344.80 don't work any better

I've done the same, rolled back to 337.88.

 

The last 3 or 4 iterations have not improved things for me in any of the platforms (XP10, FSX or P3D)

 

My 670GTX seems happy at 337.88. Much fewer stutters.

 

That my placebo, and I'm sticking to it!

Just thought I'd go against the flow and say no issues for me with latest drivers.  :wink:

Same here @deetee.  I have an EVGA GTX 970 4GB Superclocked with no problems.  There was some new AAFA coding in the 344.75 mostly intended for other games.  I don't see a significant difference on my 1920x1200 display - no problem with banding.  I've always had a bit of "hitching" at high altitude/high speed flying (jets) but I think that's a scenery load issue at high settings.

The latest drivers are causing screen tearing in my P3D 2.4 even with V-Sync on but only when I pan up or down, not side to side (which usually causes tearing).   It's rather annoying.  I think I will roll back.

Same here, Titan card, no issues whatsoever. I don't use AA anymore and run 3 monitors at 4360x1600 pixels.

Disabled HDR Anti Aliasing and Anistropic filter level down to 1x. Works like a charm, good frame rates and great graphics.

Sounds like FSX adjustments to me...  This is X-Plane

OK -my mistake for not opening the program and looking. At 71, your memory sometimes misses cues!

Very interesting!  I'll try the 346.22 drivers if I can find them (beta, not WHQL) and see a before and after with @torfih's settings.  I don't need framerate help, just graphics quality.

I'm now on 346.22. It's just perfect.

 

? Can't find that driver anywhere apart from Linux forums...

344.75 is the latest driver available for Windows 8.1 64 bit from nVidia, and no betas in the pipeline yet.  Just checked.

 

Has anyone found any advantage with the new MFAA (Multi-frame sampled anti-aliasing), or is that just for on-board CPU/GPU graphics?
