Hi everyone welcome to the Nvidia Driver Watch! In this topic we aim to keep each other informed about the performance and stability of Nvidia Driver releases. To help us with staying on topic, I would like every contributor to stick to a format for reporting an issue with any driver release. If and when we have multiple confirmations/evidence of a known issue, it will be included in this TS. In addition, we will aim to create a list of 'safe' Driver releases for specific cards. If you have information to help the cause, either post here or PM. Once per week I will be collecting the info posted here and clean up the TS. Please include all information when you contribute so we can turn this topic into a useful and informative place to be: Driver release: xxx.xx Please include WHQL or BETA, whichever applies OS + build + 32/64 bit: How to find your build number? Click START > type 'winver' in command line // Alternatively (W10), config panel > System > About GPU + OC clocks if applicable: Specify the full GPU name, including vendor, version, or even better, include GPU-Z screenshot. Please include your overclock if you run one, and try to reproduce the issue @ stock clocks! NOTE: If you run modified BIOS, please refrain from posting in this thread, it will only create confusion - if you still want to contribute, reproduce with stock BIOS or PM me. Describe the issue: If you find graphics anomalies such as artifacting, include screenshots! Specify the game + situation the issue occurred in. More info is good, but try to keep it brief and to the point __________________________________________________________________ SAFE DRIVERS / END OF CYCLE DRIVERS PER GEN Here we collect safe, well performing driver versions sorted by GPU architecture. Nvidia tends to 'end of cycle' its driver updates for each card generation - regardless, newer updates may still include fixes and performance tweaks, SLI compatibility bits etc. General rule of thumb is to always stick to the *latest* version available; only when you encounter issues here, should you roll back to drivers on the SAFE list below. FERMI GTX 5xx KEPLER GTX 6xx / GTX 7xx MAXWELL GTX 9xx PASCAL GTX 10xx Please provide input on whether or not you like this idea, what you would see changed, or whatever else you would like to see added! Depending on the input I'll consider devoting the time to making this worthy of a sticky!
