Could this actually be related to image tearing/corruption with Adaptive V-Sync? I need to test this even though they don't mention Adaptive V-Sync specifically...

Nope, Adaptive V-Sync still causes horrible image tearing in Opera using full screen...

What surprised me is the fact that NV Control Panel settings list doesn't reset to the top each time you change any setting in it. It's still very much broken as they badly fixed it, but someone actually tried to mend something. Something that was essentially broken for a whole decade. Looks like my endless bitching about it wasn't for nothing after all. Now, NVIDIA, just do it properly, not just partially. You know, menu actually staying in place and not jumping around trying to roughly get back into the same position as it was originally. It's close, but no cigar...
