NVIDIA Releases the GeForce 364.51 WHQL Drivers

NVIDIA over the weekend, released the GeForce 364.51 WHQL drivers. These drivers address a critical bug in the company's previous WHQL-signed GeForce 364.47 WHQL driver, which causes the installer to crash the system with a BSOD/TDR error during "express" install. The bug was so severe, that it forced NVIDIA to pull the driver off its website. The rest of this driver's feature-set appears to be consistent with that of the 364.47 WHQL.

After finding a critical installation issue, the team has replaced yesterday’s driver (364.47) with today’s new driver (364.51). This driver has been submitted to Microsoft for WHQL-approval and we will update the driver package online as soon as we have the certified package.

Same driver just with a WHQL stamp.

I think there were 2 releases. The asap damage control release, and then the WHQL release. Both with the same version #.

Installed, zero issues.
Same here. Granted, I only played a bit of Path of Exile, but it seemed just like every other driver update.

W7 here and installed with zero issues. Playing The Division and glad to see the actual release has more going on (cars, litter etc). Everything maxed out (custom - ultra) at 1440p and getting 48-59 fps.

EDIT: lol - BSOD after computer was idle for 10 mins (standard screen off power saving). I guess they haven't fixed anything because I've never had this before....

EDIT: And again. I'll try one last session but if it BSOD's again , it's back to the 362 branch. First BSOD drivers I've had from Nvidia. Maybe they just fixed W10 and thought 'screw W7'. lol - not.

FTR, problem seems to happen after idling for a few minutes.

Realbench has that "crash when test ends on SLI" bug on these drivers. Granted, works fine with SLI off, so it might not even be NVIDIAs fault so much as a Realbench bug. Just reporting.

I wonder if this has anything to do with W10 being on WDDM 2.0 while W7 is not.

Dunno but after a clean instal I'm still getting BSOD. I've rolled back to 362.00

I've never had problems with Nvidia drivers before so these ones are definitely shit. That's professional talk right there.
