Are the .33 Nvida drivers still the best for 1080?

I run P3dv3.4 and used the .33 for a long time with my 2016 Titan Pascal, which is similar to the 1080i.  I now have the latest Nvidia driver and it works great--no issues at all.  Better framerates, too.  I think there's no reason to stick with the .33 now.

What is the # of the .33 driver, as well as the latest one that works great with the 1080?

385.52 is the current driver for 64 bit windows 7 and 10.  376.33 (Dec., 2016) was the best driver for P3D for a while, because some subsequent Nvidia drivers had issues.  Eventually Nvidia straightened them out.

I have been using 382.53  WHQL with the GTX 1070 and not experiencing any issues at all, with P3D v4.

Interesting... Now I'm getting "This device NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 stopped working for the following reason: DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG..." each time I try to start a flight

In the nVidia Control Panel, is "Power Management Mode" set to "Prefer Maximum Performance"?

that got switched off when I performed a "clean installation"- it reset the profile I guess. Let me give that a try.

I too am getting a DXGI error with the latest driver. But only in V3 and only with FSlabs Spotlight installed. I am rolling back to go back to normal.

Please post back here if the roll back resolves the error.

Thanks,

382.05 were the ones that worked for me...  No idea what the problem was with the latest two, they seem to throw DXGI errors everytime i start p3dV3.

I'm back to the 33's.  They seem to be better than anything that followed.

After MUCH testing, and the various opinions I've made on this forum....I NOW agree that the 382.05's are indeed the best so far when it comes to Memory crashes.  I'm back with them again.  It's so sad that NVidia allows all their latest drivers to totally ignore the requests of the FSX community.

Given the age of the platform, not surprising.

Cheers!
