    I'm having nasty issues of consistent screen flickering as the Nvidia 1070 card keeps redetecting every 3 seconds the Denon Receiver plugged into the HDMI port when the receiver is switched to a different input signal. I had to unplug the hdmi cable until I actually use the 2nd displau TV. Its amazing how shitty Nvidia drivers can get in just a few point releases and what new issues they create.

    The Windows 10 DX9 thing was in Windows' side, to be fair.

    Honestly, man? I think the card's a lemon. These issues are kind of unheard of in terms of being connected to Nvidia's recent driver quality decline, and them all happening at once points to that, IMO. I'm not saying all the problems would be fixed, but something's wrong.

    Yeah, I know that, I though my post implied it's Windows 10's fault not the driver.

    Any how, I did a few searches, can't seem to find people who experience Silent_Buddha's problems, I put the famous DPC latency issue in my mind as well, but that would have manifested with sound skipping and hitching, not a mere small network delay!

    Have you posted your bug at Nvidia? Might help since Google doesn't indicate many with the same issue.

    I wonder what kind of bugs we get this time. I rarely update drivers anymore unless a new game requires me to do it.

    Agreed, though sometimes they include fixes not listed in the release notes that may or may not be required. Not sure about the last release but this contains VulkanRT version 1.0.26.0.

    Give it a few days, fellow B3Ders, just to be safe. We've seen what Nvidia's been having issues with lately.

    I hadnt even installed the previous driver version yet. Wonder if a newer version will hit before next weekend.

    Perhaps, but it better than waiting extended periods for bug fixes that might affect you.

    Even better would be a sane release schedule that doesn't introduce crippling bugs every other release.
    But sadly RERO+user testing is the hot thing right now, even in areas that *really* aren't a good fit. (Looking at you, Microsoft!)

    Do they get paid per driver release? Why do we have a new version every week?

    Hot on the tail of yesterday's AMD Radeon Software Crimson ReLive 16.12.2 driver, Nvidia releases a hotfix driver correcting the following:

    Workaround to fix incorrect Folding@home work units.
    Fixed random flashes in Just Cause 3.
    Fixed some issues that could lead to Battlefield 1 crash
    Fixed SLI texture flickering in Battlefield 1.
    Fixed corruption in Wargame: Red Dragon game.
