I can confirm that SLI now works in Surround on Z87 based boards now, at least that was fixed from the previous release ;)

In that sense, every driver need fixing then. But you know what we were talking about, and it wasn't minor bug fixes, but you just want to troll.
Trolling would be using my own personal experience and applying it to the masses as fact when there is evidence to the contrary.

I'm not using my personal experience, I'm using the fact that no one has proven the driver is related to any of the major issues, that no one has even bothered to post a screenshot of temps and fan speeds, and that nVidia themselve hasn't pulled the driver. If it was really a widespread issue, nVidia would have pulled the driver. Yet out of the probably millions that have installed the driver, all we have is a few anecdotal reports of problems. No credible new source as bothered to even investigate the story, and ModCrash is not a credible new source, and his article lists two people having an issue and suddenly it MUST be the driver. Sorry, no. And I never once used my own personal experience to say there isn't an issue with the driver.

I can say I have had issues with the 320.18 driver on my 780, but it sure as hell didn't kill my card. Rolled back to 320.11 that came with the card, and all is well. The whole issue with the 320.18 drivers I think is that theres something going on with the way the driver manages vram, since things will be fine for an hour, then textures will become corrupt, and portray a sense of being on acid with all the colors.

I see stability issues with these on Win7 64bit on very rare occasions and cant replicate them, similar to 320.18 but the error messages appear differently. 320.18 still gives me extremely rare crashes in LoL, but 320.49 BETA's have solved all my sporadic crashing problems.

Yeah, Assassin's Creed 3 had massive texture corruption on 320.18, but all is well in 320.49 BETA.

Thanks for this, I was gonna try them but as I can see I should stay with 320.49 BETA for a while longer :toast:
