Yeah, Fast Sync was a hit or miss over last few drivers, at least for Arma 3. 382.53 so far looking good, we'll see how it goes after few system reboots :)

The longer list is the issues.

Though I've been using firefox fine, so I don't know what "crash" I'm supposed to be expecting, but I haven't gotten it yet, lol.

Every Graphics driver release is called "Game Ready" yet it seems it rarely is. :kookoo:

Game-Ready might as well be their way of saying "this is for gamers who can afford to have bad drivers, enterprise stay away!"

I guess I shouldn't be surprised but Windows 7 had only one issue with these same drivers. Maybe because Windows 10 is on the newer side? I dunno :confused:

Yep. I stay months behind, and always play the new games fine. Crazy Nvidia with their stated "need" to upgrade drivers. :kookoo:

I too have noticed that with my GTX 960 that the newer drivers degrade the performance. AT first no but after a minute yes.

If you still have any problems, I advise starting a thread in the TPU forums.
