    Going to have to try these to see if they resolve the rendering anomalies that have recently cropped up in GW2 and Warframe. It's hugely annoying to have things shining through your character. In GW2 I can see my glowing eyes head glamour showing through the back of my head. And in Warframe many light sources and text labels are now shining through my character. It's annoying as all hell.

    Then again, they aren't typically benchmarked games by games journalists, so I doubt there will be any fixes. Just like always if it isn't a high profile recent release or one that is regularly benchmarked, it gets shoddy support from the driver team.

    I haven't been so conflicted about a graphics card since the original Geforce 256. Loved the speed of it (just like this 1070) but its other shortcomings made me sell it off and get a slower Voodoo 5500 instead.

    Regards,
    SB

    The OCP setting gives me weird behavior in some compute apps -- some refuse to load, others return an error message that the CUDA device is unavailable or busy.

    These are bad drivers for me ... performance way down across the board with some crashes. Performance review at Guru also indicated these have very poor performance.

    Played hours of RE7 without issue on 980M and 1070. That's why I got these drivers.

    Malo that's sounds like HDMI? I have a HTPC and HDMI audio drives me mad because I have two HDMI connections. One to my TV and one to my receiver. The receiver doesn't support 1360x768 native of my TV so I'm stuck with this. The Windows audio channel configuration resets frequently (5.1 back to stereo). You can disable separate HDMI audio devices in the NV control panel. That at least keeps it from switching to my TV speakers. I blame Windows for this nonsense because that's where the configuration happens.

    Well @swaaye it's actually a DP connection to the monitor. It does have speakers but it's never done that before. To be honest it was the first time I realized the monitor even had speakers lol. Sounded horrible.

    Wow, who knew Minecraft was so cutting edge for Nvidia to barely be able to handle.

    Beta means it's still in testing or development cycle. Usually includes new development features or fixes specific bug issues developers/consumers have identified.
